Every season Oakland Hills hosts a team of Interns, on the golf course as well as the Pro Shop and clubhouse. The Turf Care Team has 2 positions remaining for Turfgrass Intern in 2014. The information for that program and the application process can be found at the following link:
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 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.
