Job Description: Looking for two interns from approximately April to September. It is our goal to provide Golf Course Maintenance interns with a valuable experience and prepare them to advance in their chosen field.  Interns will participate in all facets of our golf course maintenance program.  This includes, but is not limited to, topdressing, fertilizer applications, and irrigation practices.  Interns will have the opportunity to work on both courses at our facility.  Introduction into the management plan, annual budget, employee scheduling, and equipment maintenance will also be included in our intern’s experience.  Management of crews and small construction projects may also be presented to the intern during time of employment.  Meetings with managers will be held once a week during the middle of our intern’s employment with a different topic discussed each week by one or more of the Golf Course Maintenance full time staff.  Interns are encouraged to ask questions at this time.  The training and guidance received will improve the intern’s experience and make them a better candidate for future employment.
