About the Internships
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).
