Dear Students:

 

Spring Creek Ranch is currently seeking motivated individuals looking for a great internship opportunity.  Spring Creek Ranch is a Jack Nicklaus Signature Design located just outside of Memphis in Collierville, Tennessee.  We are an 18-hole private facility that opened to the membership in 1999 and named #2 Best New Private Club by Golf Digest in 2000.  Spring Creek Ranch also entered Golf Digest Rankings as the second best golf course in Tennessee. 

 

Spring Creek Ranch is unique in that the entire property is covered with a 6” sand-cap that allows for exceptional drainage.   The greens are currently “Champion” Bermudagrass accentuated with over 130 acres of “Meyer” and “Palisades” Zoysiagrass.  The golf course flows through hundreds of acres of rolling hills that have been left untouched from years past when the ranch was used for cattle breeding.

 

As an Agronomy Staff, we offer a true learning experience for our interns.  Our students are treated differently than our regular staff members.  Projects and technical work such as spraying, fertilizing, irrigation, calibration, and record keeping are the primary daily assignments.  Each intern will spend one full week in the shop with our Equipment Manager and mechanics.  We also allow each student to act as Assistant Superintendent for one full week toward the end of the internship.  This experience has been thoroughly educational for past students as they must manage a crew of 25+ and be the problem solver throughout the week.   Our staff is comprised of an experienced group of outstanding individuals that show great pride in their work and work well with turf students. 

 

As a staff, we at Spring Creek Ranch show great respect for all interns.   While here, each student will be provided free onsite housing including paid utilities, uniforms, and a starting wage of $8.00/hour.  Under most circumstances, there are opportunities for overtime.

 

Again, we are looking for students at all times of year, including spring, summer, and fall internships.  If you have an interest in an employment opportunity or just have a few questions, please feel free to contact us at (731) 608-0827 or via email at stephenc@springcreekranch.org.

 

Sincerely,

 

Stephen Cox
