Located in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Wade Hampton Golf Club is currently ranked 1st in the state and 25th in the nation by Golf Digest. In recent years, Wade Hampton GC embarked on a full golf course renovation, which consisted of rebuilding greens, re-grassing approaches and tees, decontaminating the primary rough and reseeding, new cart path installation, and other course playability improvements. Wade Hampton Golf Club now consists of Pure Distinction bentgrass greens and approaches, Crystal BlueLinks teeing grounds, Tall Fescue/Kentucky Bluegrass primary rough, and a blended fine fescue secondary rough. Since finalizing the course renovation, Wade Hampton GC continues to improve course play-ability, course aesthetics, and turf management practices. Students will work closely with the Turf Management Team through their internship focusing on daily course management, chemical/fertilizer applications, irrigation troubleshooting/repair, proper water management, and crew leadership.
