ABOUT 3000 volunteers are needed to assist at the organising of the Fiji International Golf, the PGA of Australia announced.

"We're putting the call out to potential volunteers in Fiji and from all around Australia and New Zealand who want to be a part of this spectacular event," said Brian Thorburn, Chief Executive Officer of the PGA of Australia in a statement.

"It is an exciting opportunity to be part of history and see what happens behind the scenes of a professional golf tournament."

"Our region has a great volunteer culture and each year we're thankful for the generosity of the thousands of volunteers who help make our golf tournaments a success."

He said all volunteers would receive training prior to the tournament, so while golf knowledge is preferred, it's not essential.

Supported by the Fiji Government, the inaugural Fiji International will be played from August 14th to 17th at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course.

Fiji's own and former world number one golfer Vijay Singh is already confirmed to compete in the four-round golf tournament.
