WAIVER AND RELEASE OF ALL CLAIMS FOR CITY OF LINCOLN MUNICIPAL GOLF PROGRAM VOLUNTEER GOLF COURSE MARSHALS
Please read the following information carefully and be aware that in volunteering you will be waiving and releasing all claims for injuries you might sustain arising out of volunteering as a golf course marshal for the City of Lincoln municipal golf program.
As a volunteer golf course marshal I agree to conduct all activities in a lawful manner and provide services in a professional manner and in accordance with the terms of the Lincoln City Golf Marshalling Program Guidelines, City of Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department rules and regulations, and Lincoln Municipal Code.
I recognize that I may receive a nominal benefit for their service as a volunteer marshal. I also recognize that I will serve as a volunteer, despite any nominal benefit, and it is expressly understood that I am not an employee and not entitled to any City benefits including, but not limited to, overtime, retirement benefits, workers’ compensation, sick leave, or injury leave.
I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of damage to property or physical injuries, including death, that may occur as a result of participating as a volunteer marshal. I agree to assume all such risks without limitation, and waive any and all claims of whatsoever kind or nature and indemnify and hold harmless and defend against the City of Lincoln and the Parks and Recreation Department, its officers, agents, employees, volunteers and program affiliates arising from the activities, including death, injury, damage, or loss that may occur. I have read and understand the above Waiver and Release of all claims and have the legal capacity to sign this Agreement.
Golf course marshals will use marked golf carts to enhance their visibility, and will wear lanyards provided by the program identifying them as course marshals. Course marshals will have a radio or cell phone available to contact clubhouse staff.
Golf course marshals will generally be assigned to a four to five hour shift. The schedule will be coordinated by the Golf Professional, and the number of course marshals on each shift will be determined by the Golf Professional based on anticipated play or events. The Golf Professional will maintain a calendar identifying the dates and shifts that golf course marshals volunteered.
- a senior 18-hole round on a weekday, plus a half-cart rental
- a senior 18-hole round on a Saturday/Sunday/Holiday after 1 pm, plus a half-cart rental
Play cards may be redeemed by the volunteer who received the it, or by another person accompanying the recipient of the play card.
The individual serving as a golf course marshal is not considered to be an employee of the Lincoln City Golf Program, or of the Golf Professional. A play card has a market value of $29.75. The total cumulative value of play cards received by an individual should not exceed $600.00 during the calendar year.
