Seasonal Intern $25/HR, O.T. & Free Housing

Shooting Star, a Golf Digest Top 100 Tom Fazio designed 18-hole private facility, opened for play in 2009. The course is located at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Ski Resort, one mile from Grand Teton National Park, and boasts one of the more breathtaking mountain backdrops in the world. The golf season is Mid-May through Mid-October with an elite 15 KM Nordic/Cross-Country ski course maintained from December through April.

The Seasonal Intern(s) at Shooting Star will be a hands-on and active position involved in all aspects of Golf Course Maintenance. Interns work directly under the Assistant Superintendents and Golf Course Manager. The duration of Internships are 3-7 months within the timeframe of April-October. Those who begin in April or May and stay through October will experience the unique opportunity of contributing with how the course emerges from lengthy snow cover, evolves to premier conditions, and then prepped for the upcoming winter. World class bentgrass is maintained on all greens, tees, approaches, and fairways. Kentucky bluegrass roughs, and 126 acres of fine fescue native cover the remaining surfaces of the 256-acre facility. Examples of daily roles to be performed are chemical/fertilizer mixing & applications, daily mowing, hand watering, irrigation repairs, drainage/course improvement projects, vegetation management, tractor/implement work, course set-up, equipment maintenance, snow removal, management of small crews and more. This position will excel if the individual can effectively communicate daily observations with supervisors, ask questions, and actively seek information needed for becoming an A.I.T or Assistant Superintendent. Interested applicants need to email a cover letter and resume addressed to: Golf Course Manager, Tyler Shrum tshrum@shootingstarjh.com.
