2020 PGA TOUR Summer Internship Program
The PGA TOUR Internship Program is open to all qualified college students and is committed to attaining greater diversity within our organization as well as the golf industry. Our internships are designed to expose college students to the business side of golf that supports one of the world's leading sports brands - the PGA TOUR. While a love of the game is certainly appreciated, knowing how to play is not a prerequisite for the internship. Your internship experience will be enhanced by activities and projects that will allow you to gain a full picture of how the PGA TOUR and other golf organizations work together to support our players, charities and events on the PGA TOUR, PGA Tour Champions, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA TOUR Latinoamerica, PGA TOUR China and the Mackenzie Tour-Canada.
As of June 2020, all applicants must:
- be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program; and
- have completed their Sophomore year; and
- be legally permitted to work in the United States*; and
- have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0.
*International students must be currently enrolled at a US college or university and obtain all visas and employment authorizations prior to the start of the internship. We strongly encourage these students to begin this process early as it may require several months to complete. Contact the International Student Advisor at your university for specific information and requirements.
