Over the years, our Internship Program has become recognizable throughout the nation for opportunities such as scholarships for our students while employed with the Club and the ability to volunteer time at important events.
This year, our two interns had the chance to spend a week on the grounds staff at Lancaster Country Club for the United States Women’s Open. Above, Luis Martinez (Penn State University) poses with the Harton S. Semple Trophy. Below, Brandon McNally (Purdue University) takes his turn with the trophy that was hoisted by In Gee Chun of South Korea with a score of -8 for the Championship.
As part of his morning duties, Brandon raked bunkers with a crew of six volunteers, pictured here on the 16th hole.
Below on the 16th hole, eleven grounds staff members take part in a variety of tasks including bunker raking, greens mowing and moving plastic covers around the green complex.
On the 10th hole, a nightly activity included filling divots with group of 15 staff members.
Below on the 14th hole, more divots are being filled during the evening shift, while in the distance you can see eleven, again that number was 11, fairway mowers prepping the turf for the following day’s golf rounds.
