When I met the rest of my intern team in May, I wondered if it would really turn out like everyone said. Would we really make it through the summer as a family? Or would all of the close quarters and physical labor and travel leave us hating each other and longing for other company? Now I can honestly say that the rest of team 3 has become my family.

The AJGA’s motto has always been ‘Developing Golf’s Next Generation.’ Though most people think that that specifically applies to players, it also includes those of us who wanted to pursue a career in golf. The experiences that I had as an intern and a full-time staff member were invaluable. I am a better golf administrator today because of the time I spent with the AJGA. To this day I am very proud of that.

I have loved this experience so far. Everyone I have come in contact with has been awesome and I am having so much fun and learning a lot. The AJGA is first class and this summer has been phenomenal. I am so thankful and appreciative to have been chosen. I just wish the summer would slow down!

My overall experience this summer has truly been a dream come true! Being a part of the AJGA family has only made me want to do more for the AJGA.

I feel I have found my niche in event planning because of this internship.

I not only have met so many people along the way, I have met more of myself. It is amazing what you can find out about yourself when put in a different situation (travel, new cities, new friends, etc.).

- Macey Brock, Operations Intern, Class of 2016

Overall, I enjoyed my experience. I knew going into this it would be out of my comfort zone, and an opportunity for a lot of growth. I’m proud of myself for finishing strong and gaining this experience. I learned a lot in just a short amount of time and at the end, I know I have taken a lot away.

- Brianna Cheek, Communications Intern, Class of 2016

I have absolutely loved this internship. I have learned so much about myself as well as how to run a golf tournament. I did not play competitive golf growing up so I had no idea how much went into running a tournament. I love meeting new people every week and getting to know all the players.

- Kevin Bowman, Operations Inters, Class of 2016

I have learned so much about myself and have developed leadership skills I wasn't certain I had. Working for a company with such a high standard has taught me to always do everything 100%. I never thought I'd have a passion for junior golf, but this internship has taught me otherwise. It has been amazing to see certain kids week-to-week and being told that a family had been looking forward to seeing you again or that a player is excited for you to be their rules official again. It has been an invaluable summer and I am excited to see where it takes me!

The life and leadership experiences I learned as an AJGA intern have served me throughout my career. The critical thinking, decision making and challenge of responsibility make the AJGA culture special.

Applying for this internship has been the best decision of my life. I've learned more these past few months than I feel like I did in college. I've traveled to places I only dreamed of going one day. Getting to work with a group of individuals from all types of backgrounds and making those connections are only added bonuses. I couldn't picture my summer being any better than this!
