The last year for LPGA volunteers
Pittsford, N.Y. – The LPGA in Rochester has had different names, different sponsors, and different charities but the one thing has always remained the same, the tournament has survives because of the volunteers.
There are plenty of jobs for the volunteers at Monroe Golf Club, one is scoring control.
For many years, the man running the group was Dick Groth. He started as a volunteer in year two back in 1978 and has been back every year since.
He says local volunteers are more than just workers.
“It’s almost like a family,” says Groth. “If you get a chance to talk to Rosemary, who was here from the very beginning, all the volunteers were all Locust Hill members that handled all of the different chairs. Oh, I think a lot of people are going to be sad to see it leave Rochester. No doubt about it, but it’s bittersweet. You just have to accept it and move on. It’s been a great run.”
