Volunteer Opportunities at High-Level Sporting Events in Davis County
by Discover Davis
We’re proud to host two high-level Davis County events this summer.
The Utah Championship of the Web.com PGA Tour has been held in Utah for 26 years, but this will be its first year held in Davis County. Golfers will come from all over the world to compete in the 2nd largest purse on the Web.com PGA Tour, set at $700,000.
The Tour of Utah, America’s toughest pro-cycling race, will be coming to Davis County for the third year in a row. Some of the world’s best cyclists will bike more than 100 miles in Davis County, which will be broadcast in countries all over the world.
We are excited to host both of these high-level sporting events and hope you will join us as a volunteer!
