Seasonal Intern

Internship

Morris County Golf Club is a classic 18 hole golf course designed by Seth Raynor.  The club itself was established in 1894, with its current layout of holes being finished by Raynor around 1916.  Our goal in the grounds department is to create a partnership with an individual that wants to learn more about the turf industry and the day to day needs for golf course turf managment.  We intend this to be a true partnership of respect and opportunity for growth.  We know an intern can become a valued part of our management team thorughout a summer season and we want to support an individual through that experience no matter what their current skills are.  A summer intern can expect to learn more about applications (fertilizers, fungicides, herbicides, etc.), mowing practices, course setup, tournament preparations, cultural practices, business management, project management, moisture management, and crew/team leadership.  We also have a recently updated world class maintenance facility that includes renonvations thorughout our existing areas alongside brand NEW adminstration and environmental buildings.

The upcoming 2024 season will be a great opportunity for any intern to dive into some golf course construction detail work.    We have recently completed 3 Acres of fairway/approach expansions and will be continuing to work on those areas throughout the upcoming season.  We will focus on turf health and uniformtity within those sod expansions as the summer progresses.  We also will continue our work on nursery maturirty in preparation for our next phase of golf course renonvation work beginning Oct 1st, 2024.   This upcoming fall's course work will include additional fairway expansions, a few complete green complex rebuilds, new bunkers, and green expansions.  The preparation work this summer is vital to a successful project later this year. 

I am excited for what Morris County Golf Club has to offer potential interns in regards to quality of work life, hands on experience, and project management.  All of our current goals and projects will be culminating in the exciting opportunity to host the 2026 NJ State Open, and we are looking for the right candidate to work alongside us towards our goals.     

Every season our goal for an intern is to allow freedom and flexability so they can focus in areas where they feel they need additional exposure and training.  If you are looking to gain something specific out of the upcoming season please feel free to reach out and see how we could work together.
