Interested in a career in golf administration?
Join the NYSGA team for the 2018 season as an intern!
The NYSGA is currently accepting applications for three USGA P.J. Boatwright, Jr. Internships during the spring/summer of 2018, with one in each of the following time frames: 6-Month (May - October), 5-Month (May - September) and 3-Month (May - August). Applications will be accepted until February 15.
In 1991, the USGA established the P.J. Boatwright, Jr. Internship Program. This program was designed to expose individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in golf administration to the everyday operations of a state/regional golf association.
Throughout the program, interns gain exposure in tournament preparations, tournament administration and post-tournament business. The nature of tournament administration will test one's patience, initiative and decision-making abilities, as well as one's ability to endure long hours and hard work.
Many former interns have gone on to successful careers in the golf industry and many state/regional golf association administrators around the country were once P.J. Boatwright, Jr. interns themselves (including three NYSGA staff).
