Mitchell Monen June 7, 2016

Mitchell Monen will travel with the agronomists in the West Region. Mitchell is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture and Turf Management from Oregon State University under the advisement of Dr. Alec Kowalewski.

Raised near Portland, Oregon, Mitchell’s interest in the game of golf began when his father enrolled him in golf lessons at a nearby golf course. After his first year at Oregon State, Mitchell began working at Willamette Valley Country Club (Canby, Oregon) and, after two summers working there, switched his major from Psychology to Horticulture with an option in Turf Management.

This summer, Mitchell will intern at Morningside Country Club (Rancho Mirage, California) and will pursue a career in golf course management upon graduation.
