Turfgrass Management with Golf Course emphasis program at MSU Institute of Agricultural Technology


I did an internship last summer in Rome, Wisconsin and then coming here, having a little bit of that mixing in with classes learning, it really helped me. And then this summer I’ll be going to Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton Long Island. They set you up so well in this program and people are here to help. You know you’re not alone in this, we’re all here and the turfgrass industry together It’s a really niched family, and I think that making that next step is huge and it can really help you along the road. You know we feel like the internship has been for 50 years now the heart of our turfgrass program You know they go out and they put their knowledge to use. They also get out of their comfort zone. We make them go to a place where they’ve never worked before–that’s one of the requirements now We also tell them you can go anywhere you want to in the United States or the world We’ve been in many, many countries all over the world. We don’t hinder them at all. I did my internship at Olympia Fields Country Club out in Illinois. When I did my internship, I actually got a job offer out at Olympia Fields. They will be hosting the Women’s PGA and they have a lot of tournaments under their belt. And I think it’s awesome. I’m Jason Overmeyer currently interning at the Country Club of Detroit I’m learning about diseases, pest management, irrigation, fertilization and most importantly moisture management. But as far as like learning how to manage people and personalities and scheduling and budgeting like that’s the important part of my transition to management. I’m a freshman this year first year. Some things that I didn’t expect were the family that you form. You are with each other every day It’s never a competition for classes or whoever to do better. Everyone’s trying to get the same score and everything I love it.
