It is part of their European Tour Legacy project, which supports the London 2012 legacy programme, and encourages people to volunteer and help make sport happen.

Successful recruits will become Surrey Golf Young Ambassadors and will help encourage more people to take up golf in the county – as well as volunteering at the BMW PGA Championship.

This is the European Tour's flagship tournament and the world-class field will include World Number Three Luke Donald, who will aim to complete his hat trick of consecutive victories. Volunteer opportunities could include roles as practice ground attendants or scoreboard operators.

Richard Shaw, the Surrey golf development officer, commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to volunteer at a major global sporting event. They'll meet like-minded people, get a real buzz from encouraging people to take up golf and gain great experience to increase their employment skills.”

The Legacy project is supported by The European Tour and offers volunteer opportunities to young people aged 18-25 who live in Surrey or the adjoining London Boroughs of Surrey, such as Kingston and Croydon. They should be interested in getting involved in golf but no previous playing experience is required.

Application forms are available for download at and should be submitted by Friday, 15 March. Successful candidates will be notified by Friday, 22 March and will volunteer at golf community events or clubs in Surrey before assisting at the BMW PGA Championship.

Branded clothing will be provided for volunteers.
