Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) announced today that one of its own Golf and Sports Turf Management students is interning at Primland Resort for the summer of 2022. Joseph Yeatts completed his first year in the HGTC program and accepted an opportunity to spend his summer working in Virginia at Primland Resort, the #1 rated resort in the Southeast on a 12,000-acre mountain estate. The Highland Course at Primland Resort opened in 2006 by renowned golf course architect, Donald Steel. The 18-hole course recently ranked as the No. 28 public course in America by Golf Digest and ranked as the No. 2 public course in Virginia in Golfweek.
“We are very proud of Joseph Yeatts and the opportunity he has been given to intern this summer at Primland Resort in Virginia. This kind of experience will be very beneficial to him when he returns in the fall to complete his final year in the program,” said Charles Granger, Chair/Professor of Golf and Sports Turf Management and Engineering Technologies.
