April 24: The 2017 Fiji International at Natadola Bay is one of the most picturesque venues on the Asian Tour, European Tour and the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia. You can now be a part of it!
161009_0101Volunteer applications are now being accepted for the tournament to be held on the new dates of 17-20 August, allowing greater flexibility for golfing stars competing internationally to fit the Fiji International in to their busy schedules.
What better setting than Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course, where 14 of the 18 holes have spectacular views of the Coral Coast, to rub shoulders with some of the best players in the world?
The Fiji International can provide a role for many, regardless of your golfing experience, whether it is inside the ropes scoring for a Tour Professional to assisting at the driving range.
With only a four to six hour shift to complete on each day of play, there is plenty of time to relax in the beautiful surroundings Fiji has to offer, the tournament’s Official Hotel; the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa, also provides everything you’ll need to unwind after a day on course.
The luxury resort, last year voted one of the top-10 luxury hotels in Fiji at the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards, is right next door to Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course.
161004_0198The resort provides services that go beyond the world-renowned Fijian warmth and hospitality to give guests authentic, enriching experiences and insights into the Fijian culture and way of life.
Depending on your budget and location preference there are a number of different accommodation options with all Fiji International volunteer packages including seven nights’ accommodation and breakfast daily.
All volunteers at the Fiji International receive an official tournament uniform, lunch daily and a gift to express the tournament’s gratitude. But the highlight is playing Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course like a Pro on Super Monday.
Over the past three years the Fiji International has attracted volunteers from Australia, New Zealand and Fiji with the fun experience forging international friendships for life.
If a working holiday combined with some golf sounds like your idea of paradise then contact Norm Emerson, Volunteer Manager on nlemerson@ozemail.com.au or visit the Volunteers page for all the Fiji International volunteer packages.
Ends.
