Worked 4 summers at Fort-In-View Golf Course as a back shop employee. Following that I worked a summer at Goose Hummock Golf Course as a back shop employee. Moving from there I got my first internship which was 4 months in Minneapolis, Minnesota at The Minikhada Club . I then found myself going to the West Coast on another 6 month internship through school at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Oregon. Once, graduated from college I moved to Invermere, British Columbia and worked as a shop employee for a full summer at Grey Wolf Golf Course and Panorma Mountain Resort.
