The Interns are exposed to all facets of golf course maintenance. A particular emphasis is placed on chemical/fertilizer applications, special projects and learning how to hand water. Our "firm and fast" philosophy requires close attention to irrigation practices and the Interns are required to become adept at monitoring moisture levels.
The Interns will also learn how to maintain a golf course to the exacting standards expected at a "Top 100" Platinum club. Oakland Hills has hosted 9 Major Championships, is currently ranked #16 by Golf Digest and is the site of the 2016 US Amateur. Housing is provided on site free of charge for the duration of the Internship. The successful Interns will set high expectations for themselves as well as for the golf course.
