Shelter Harbor Golf Club

Charlestown, RI

Intern Program

Shelter Harbor Golf Club is a Hurdzan-Fry design that features an 18-hole, par-71 championship course, a 9-hole par-3 course and a 20 acre practice facility. The course is spread out over 400+ acres of rugged, rocky terrain. The grass varieties at SHGC include: greens are Greenwich Velvet bentgrass on straight sand (California green construction), bentgrass tees and fairways, fine fescue/bluegrass rough and fescue native areas.

Interns will be involved in all aspects of maintaining the golf course to the highest level.  Individuals will spend time in a variety of departments with in greens and grounds (chemical/fertilizer application, irrigation, equipment maintenance and repair) in order to get a well rounded view of the entire operation.  Interns are encouraged to participate in a regional tournament to gain valuable experience of other operations outside of our own.

Shelter Harbor Golf Club is split by the towns of Westerly and Charlestown Rhode Island.  The golf course is approximately ½ mile from some of the best beaches in Southern Rhode Island.  Other attractions include: Block Island, Historic Watch Hill, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos (18/27 miles), Boston and New York Cities (95/150 miles). 

Interns will be expected to work 50-70+ hours/week.  The compensation package includes housing, meals, golf privileges, uniforms and a pay rate of $9-$11/hour plus overtime depending on experience.
