ROGERS -- Here's your chance to rub elbows with some of the best professional golfers in the Ladies Professional Golf Association.

More than 100 volunteers are still needed for the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G, the official LPGA Tour stop headed to Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers June 25-July 1.

Golf knowledge is not required, and those who register now will receive a special offer from Callaway Golf.

"The world's best female golfers will be playing and anyone interested in seeing these players and a first-class tournament experience from behind the scenes are encouraged to volunteer," said tournament Director David Shoemaker. "Every year our tournament receives high praise from the Tour and it goes without saying this couldn't be done without our volunteers, many of whom come back year after because of the enjoyable experiences they've had."

The volunteer fee is $45 and includes two Callaway Golf shirts and headwear featuring the tournament logos, a volunteer badge valid for week-long tournament access and parking, four weekly grounds tickets for guests of the volunteer's choice, an invitation to the annual volunteer appreciation party, and meals and beverages during assigned shifts.

Tickets to the tournament are on sale at www.nwachampionship.com, or by calling 479-715-6100. Daily tickets are $25, valid any one day, Friday, June 29 -- Sunday, July 1. Weekly grounds passes, valid all week, can be purchased for $50. Admission is free to the public Monday, June 25 -- Thursday, June 28. Children 17 years old and younger are admitted free with a ticketed adult.
