• Ozarks National – World-renowned golf course designers Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw put their unique touch on the Ozarks with this 18-hole course.

• Mountain Top – Designed by Gary Player, this 13-hole short course gives golfers an unparalleled experience traversing through unique rock outcroppings.

• Buffalo Ridge Springs – The title of Missouri’s #1 Public Course goes to this Tom Fazio designed course and is the staple of Johnny Morris’s “Nature Golf”.

• Top of the Rock – Our very own 9-hole, par 3 course designed by Jack Nicklaus is the first short course to be featured in a PGA Tournament

Educational Requirements

Enrolled in a 2 or 4 year Horticulture or Turf Management Program.

Special Requirements

Our internship program will allow the right candidate to experience world-class turf management under the direction of Big Cedar Lodge Golf Course Superintendents and the Assistant Superintendents. Time will be spent apprenticing in course management, chemical application, maintenance and repair, and personnel leadership. Each Superintendent has a unique course and management approach, thus affording interns the ability to study and compare methods of leadership and operations they may not encounter during traditional classroom training. Interns will have the opportunity to spend time at each of our courses plus some of the ongoing construction projects as well. This internship will entail the responsibilities of an AIT/Spray Technician and help prepare the associate for future roles within the turf management industry.

• Chemical / Fertilizer Applications: Perform various applications on greens, tees, fairways and rough using a variety of chemicals to prevent diseases, eradicate weeds, and maintain a healthy turf stand.

• Hand Water Greens: Being in the transition zone with bent grass greens, interns will spend a lot of time hand watering. Candidates will have access to POGO and TDR moisture meters to make informed decisions on the quantity of water required.

• Management Experience: Managing personnel is one of the toughest aspects that turf managers handle on a day to day basis. Interns will get crucial experience leading small crews and other individual projects to hone their leadership skills. The intern program is a key part of Big Cedar Lodge’s golf operation.

Under the direction of the Director of Agronomy, each intern will also spend time in a classroom setting, discussing every aspect of what it takes to manage a world class golf resort. It is our goal to help each intern to be prepared with real life scenarios on and off the golf course. A handbook will be provided to assist each intern with note taking and creating calendars. This handbook will outline various aspects of our industry as well.
