Charles Schwab Cup Championship

We started writing this page about the Charles Schwab Cup Championship back in 2013 and quite a bit changed since then. After a few years at Desert Mountain, the tournament eventually moved to Phoenix Country Club in 2017. Since Andreas has been the Player Transportation Chairman for the tournament now since 2015, we will be updating information about the tournament directly on the Charles Schwab Cup Championship Player Transportation page.

Below you will find the Schwab Cup Volunteer Committee Descriptions for all the volunteer committees available for you to participate in. We also have details about the volunteer package (including uniform, tickets, etc.). At the bottom of this page, you will find a link to the 'official' tournament's volunteer website, where you can register to volunteer. Check out the latest updates towards the bottom on this page. Get tickets for the Charles Schwab Cup before they sell out. Check out hotel accommodation in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area for tournament week with our comparison tool.

Charles Schwab Cup Championship

The Charles Schwab Cup Championship at TPC Harding Park in 2013 was the 1st PGA TOUR Champions Final, that we volunteered at - again, as in most golf tournaments, in the Transportation Committee. The 2014, 2015 and 2016 Charles Schwab Cup Championship events were played at Desert Mountain, AZ - just outside of Scottsdale and not too far away from Phoenix Airport. It then moved to Phoenix Country Club starting with the 2017 tournament. We are always so excited about this tournament specifically (of course, all the other tournaments as well) and the volunteer opportunities being offered.
