The IGA is an Allied Golf Association (AGA) of the USGA and is the governing body for golf in the state of Iowa. It exists as a non-profit organization that works to preserve, protect and promote the best interests and spirit of the game. As “caretakers” of the game the IGA works to preserve the rich history of golf in our state and to provide numerous services that benefit all that play the game in Iowa.
In 1991, the USGA established the P.J. Boatwright Jr. Internship Program. P.J. Boatwright (pictured above), the USGA’s third executive director, played a pivotal role in both the USGA and golf in the U.S. This program is designed to give experience to individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in golf administration, while assisting state and regional golf associations in the promotion of amateur golf, on a short-term, entry-level basis. At the IGA, Chad Pitts, Katelynn Hogenson, Nate McCoy and Clint Brown are all former Boatwright interns.
The deadline to apply is Monday, March 8th or until position(s) are filled (whichever is later).
