As the 2016 Ryder Cup comes to a close today, we want to give a well-deserved congratulations to all of the volunteers who helped make the event a huge success. People like Jake Ryan, course superintendent at Northland Country Club and Isaac Kasper, assistant superintendent at The Minikahda Club worked tirelessly for the past week making sure all playing surfaces were prepped, raked, groomed and rolled.

It’s safe to say that volunteers get something out of the experience as well. Apart from networking and learning from their peers, they get to walk away with a better understanding of what it takes to host a tournament of this caliber. Hats off to all the volunteers of the 2016 Ryder Cup.
