Come be a part of the Big Easy Ranch expansion! Our team is currently in the process of building a brand new 18 hole golf course lead by Architect Chet Williams, with a planned opening in the Fall of 2022. The new championship facility will complement our 9 hole facility also designed by Chet Williams. This internship will be a fantastic opportunity to continue your turf grass education and grow your personal skills to a new level!
We will be looking to fill two Internship positions on the 2000 Acre property at Big Easy Ranch. The chosen candidates will work closely with the Big Easy Agronomy team on the new golf course construction along with monitoring and conditioning our current nine hole course. This is potentially a once in a lifetime opportunity to help build a new golf course from the ground up! The position will consist of managing daily course setup on the nine holes, moisture management, fertilizer and pesticide applications, and sprayer calibrations. Along with these responsibilities, the intern will also help with EVERY aspect of the new course construction. The new course will feature Zeon Zoysia grass on tees, approaches, fairways and rough, Tifeagle greens, and native grasses throughout the 240 Acre course. As our intern, you will receive extensive experience in new course construction, Rainbird IC irrigation installation, and turf monitoring. Housing is included onsite in our brand new 22,000 sq. ft. Agronomy facility. Be prepared: this position requires a strong work ethic, positive attitude, and a commitment to the excellence that Big Easy Ranch delivers. At the end of your internship, not only will you be better prepared for your agronomic career, you will have the opportunity to grow and develop within the Big Easy ranch organization.
Must be currently enrolled in a 2 or 4 year Turf Management Program or related field. Golf course experience preferred but not required.
