We developed this blog to provide golf course maintenance information to our members. From projects, small and large, to updates on course conditions, we want to provide as much information as possible. Although we hope this blog answers all of the pertinent questions regarding our operation, we always welcome more personalized dialogue. If you have questions beyond the information found on this blog, feel free to contact our golf course superintendent, Trevor Hedgepeth.

Our First Intern Is Here

The Kinloch Maintenance staff is proud to introduce the newest member to our staff for the upcoming season. Ajay Malhotra comes to us from the CAEP global internship program as a summer intern. Ajay is from New Delhi, India and is extremely excited about coming to the states to learn the American style of turf management practices and experience the culture and social lifestyle of Americans.

Ajay began his career working at Eagleton Golf Resort in the southern region of India, which is currently ranked the second best course in the country. He received his bachelors of science from Agra University in Agra, India and became the first ever turfgrass student from India after successfully completing his National certificate in greenkeeping from Elmwood college in St. Andrews, Scotland. He is also the only Indian who was awarded scholarship by ‘’R&A’’ for studying greenkeeping. While in Scotland, Ajay was fortunate enough to have an internship at the Old Course on St. Andrews, including the experience of the 2010 British Open Championship. Since completing the R&A program, Ajay signed up through CAEP which located him here with us at Kinloch. In his free time, Ajay enjoys watching golf on TV, playing golf when he can, running and visiting his family and friends that are here in the United States, in the Washington, DC area.

The remaining three interns will be here the first of May, so check back for a bio on those individuals.
