The Northern Trust
Transportation Committee

The Northern Trust Transportation Committee volunteers provide transportation to players, their family members, TOUR staff and VIP guests before, during and after the tournament.


See below some of our volunteers having a blast during the tournament a few years ago, when we were at Bethpage.

Volunteers also assist with the car inventory and control the distribution of official tournament vehicles. The committee also assists in the return of vehicles after the tournament. Drivers must be at least 25 years old and provide a valid driver’s license. This Committee sometimes requires a lot of downtime due to the players' unpredictable schedule so it is recommended that you bring a book to pass time. If downtime allows, you may even have the chance to check out play in-person as we are usually located near the driving range or one of the holes.

You get to drive some nice cars and get to meet some really nice people.

Read more about THE NORTHERN TRUST - or check out other volunteer committees, but make sure you contact us to find out how to register for our committee this year.

2019 Tournament Dates: August 5 - 11
Liberty National GC, Jersey City, NJ




Register on the 'official' TNT (THE NORTHERN TRUST) website or contact us for further questions.


We will soon start posting information for 2019. However, volunteer registration is open already and we would love to have you on the team again as we move the tournament to New Jersey's Liberty National Golf Course.


For 2019 at Liberty National, we will be in the 'PIT'. We will have a large trailer very close to Volunteer HQ, the Media Center and - most importantly - to Player Parking.


THE NORTHERN TRUST Volunteer Uniform

All volunteers are required to wear THE NORTHERN TRUST official volunteer uniform while on duty. The official volunteer uniform for 2019 consists of a polo shirt (part of your volunteer package) and khaki bottoms (shorts and golf skorts are acceptable). Please do not wear the official uniform when off duty.


The Northern Trust Volunteer Parking and Shuttle Times

All volunteer parking will be located at Lot 2 in Liberty State Park, 200 Morris Pesin Drive, Jersey City, NJ 07305 . From here, volunteers will be dropped off at the Volunteer Center (approx. 5 minute drive). Shuttles will be provided exclusively for volunteer purposes and volunteers will not mix with the general public. Only your volunteer hang-tag will allow access into the volunteer lot, so make sure, you bring that, when you come to Lot 2.
