The University of Texas Golf Club is located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country in northwest Austin. Home to the University of Texas Men’s and Women’s golf teams, UTGC is a Bechtol-Russell design that plays just over 7,400 yards. We are a private championship 18 hole facility with a recently renovated practice facility for our members, and an exclusive practice facility for the golf teams. Our grassing varieties are primarily comprised of Tifsport bermuda fairways & rough, Trinity zoysia tees/collars/approaches, and Tifeagle ultradwarf greens. We’ve recently built a new six hole par-3 course, “The Spieth Lower 40” (SL40), designed by Jordan Spieth & Roy Bechtol, consisting of Zeon zoysia fairways/teeing grounds, Trinity zoysia collars/approaches, Cutlass zoysia roughs, and Tifeagle greens.
Interns will work directly with the Superintendent, Assistant Superintendents, and 2ndAssistant Superintendent. They will learn and engage in all aspects of our golf course maintenance operation. A big emphasis will be put on irrigation scheduling/repair, the calibration/application of chemicals & fertilizers, and the operation of all types of golf course maintenance equipment. Interns will also be heavily involved in our ultradwarf bermudagrass management programs such as topdressing, vertical mowing, and moisture management. Our philosophy is to evaluate each intern on a daily basis and to utilize their strengths, but also build upon and enhance their weaknesses. The primary goal of our program is to make each individual ready to become an Assistant Superintendent upon completion of their internship with us.
