By The Quechee Club,
- updated November 11
The Quechee Club is a private 36 hole championship golf and four season private recreational community located in south central Vermont with a current membership level of 1,400 members. The club is situated on 5,000 acres and also offers a small downhill ski area, X/C skiing, 11 tennis courts, 2 platform courts, indoor & outdoor pools, fitness center, 50 acre recreational lake, polo field, athletic fields, hiking & biking trails, etc. The surrounding "Upper Valley" area has lots of other outdoor recreational activities to offer along with the cultural offerings of Woodstock, Vermont and Dartmouth College, which is located just across the Connecticut River in Hanover, New Hampshire.
The Club has recently gone through a major renovation in 2012 after Tropical Storm Irene damaged the property including new California greens with A1/A4 Bentgrass surfaces. In additions we just completed the installation of a new Rainbird I/C decoder irrigation system with double & triple row High density plastic piping. The club has also embarked on phase one of a Campus Master plan renovation program to update other facilities and amenities throughout the club.
We are looking for driven and motivated individuals who have the short term goal of becoming an assistant golf course superintendent and eventually a golf course superintendent. The qualities we value are a good work ethic, a keen eye with attention to detail, eagerness to learn, and willing to work overtime when necessary to provide our membership with the best quality product possible.
Our internships will be specifically tailored to the individuals' needs based on past experience and what they desire to focus on while interning. Interns will be encouraged to obtain a Vermont State Pesticide applicators license while here and will become an integral part of our plant protectant applications program. In addition, interns will have some crew scheduling and leadership opportunities along with daily course set up & scouting, hand watering, irrigation repairs, project work, equipment operation, etc. Interns leave with a well rounded exposure to all facets of turfgrass management and successful interns are strongly considered for future employment opportunities that may arise along with being offered help in achieving their future career objectives. We have many former interns who have gone on to very successful careers in the Golf course maintenance industry.
Currently enrolled in or a recent graduate from a 2 or 4 year Turf, Landscape, Horticultural program, or an agronomy related field.
Some previous golf course related experience is desired but not mandatory. We are willing to train and will gear the internship to the individual's experience and needs. Our internships are tailored to the individual's experience level and we strive to fully immerse interns in all aspects of turfgrass management. Successful interns are encouraged to return for additional intern experience or to fill any open positions that may become available.
Interns are trained on our spray equipment and become a key component to our plant protectant applications. Interns are encouraged to take and pass the Vermont pesticide applicators license exam while here.
Free, on-site shared housing, 50% meal discounts, uniforms, use of the recreational facilities, lots of other outdoor opportunities available in the area.
