The Program
Interns (seasonal assistants) can expect to work on all aspects of field care under the supervision of a first-class staff. From learning the proper way to repair a mound, to executing extra events such as concerts, to performing basic and advanced turf care practices, this internship covers it all! Every intern will be involved in all day-to-day maintenance including pre-game field preparation, fertilizing, spraying, aerating, topdressing, infield grooming, mowing, and equipment maintenance. You’ll be working out of one of the most state-of-the-art maintenance facilities in all professional sports with some of the finest equipment available, all the while helping to care for the HGT Kentucky Bluegrass playing surface with DuraEdge Professional infield mix!

This is truly an internship program, not just a summer job! You will be provided with a detailed reference guide that outlines all aspects of field care throughout the summer. This program is open to current students or recent graduates of two and four year turf or horticulture/agriculture programs.
