Summer Interns Wanted

The Powder Horn Golf Club
Sheridan, Wyoming

Job Description

The Powder Horn is a 27 hole nationally recognized golf community located at the base of the Big Horn Mountains in north central Wyoming. We are in search of motivated and detail-oriented interns for the 2012 season. Our young and energetic managers strive to be the best at helping people succeed in the business of golf.

Achieving a top 100 modern course rating, the layout offers spectacular views, and every measure is taken to preserve the natural beauty of the land. We are dedicated to environ- mentally friendly practices as we participate in the Audubon International Cooperative Sanc- tuary program. The course is the site of regional USGA mid amateur qualifiers and several large member events each sea- son.

The original 18 holes opened in 1997 with Dominant Bentgrass greens. An additional 9 holes were opened in 2002 with L-93 Bentgrass greens. The fair- ways/tees are a Bluegrass/ Ryegrass mix. With three dis- tinct nines and two practice facilities, the Powder Horn is a great place to learn and grow in the industry.

Interns are exposed to all aspects of golf course management. Interns are treated similar to assis- tants and get out of the experience what they put in. Interns must ask ques- tions and work as a team to excel. Interns are ex- pected to complete a course project and manage small crews. Daily course work and providing input to the man- agement of the course as a whole is essential.

The goal of our program is to prepare interns for their first job in turfgrass management. We work individually with interns on strengths and weaknesses to better prepare them for the increasingly tight job market. Our program includes pesticide and fertilizer calibrations and applications, irrigation under- standing, crew supervision, mechanic instruction and safety meeting presentations.

Salary & Benefits

Interns will be paid a salary of $550 per week. In addition to a competitive salary, interns will have golfing and fishing privi- leges in our stocked ponds and Little Goose Creek. An intern house located along Little Goose Creek is provided at a highly discounted rate. The Sheridan area also provides many opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts including hiking, camping, kayaking, fishing, and hunting.
