INTERNSHIP POSITIONS - 2024
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 significant 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.
The NYSGA offers paid seasonal internships each season for tournament administration and communications. By nature of the NYSGA being a smaller golf association, our internships provide a lot of value and experience to individuals in the program.
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 four NYSGA staff).
