Meet Golf House House Kentucky's 2021 Interns

Four college students with Kentucky roots will be interning for Golf House Kentucky during the summer of 2021. Thanks to the P.J. Boatwright internship program with the USGA, these internships are made possible because of their funding. Our four interns from this season will work a variety of tournaments and interact with all of our golfers from the Kentucky Golf Association, Kentucky PGA Section and Kentucky Junior Golf.

Abby Harrel

Abby is a Richmond native and attending Eastern Kentucky University where she studies nursing. She wants to either receive a Master's Degree in nursing or go to nurse practitioner school after completing her undergrad, and then work as a registered nurse. For this internship, she's excited to learn how to acquire leadership skills through tournament operations and see new golf courses in Kentucky she hasn't seen before. Off the golf course, Abby lives on a farm and sells blueberries and honey with her family. She also enjoys making art in the form of paintings and drawings.

Miles Parroco

For the second straight summer, Miles is back as an intern with Golf House Kentucky after spending 2020 as an operations intern. This summer, Miles will be the organization's media intern and focus on social media, the websites, and Golf Pod Kentucky presented by TaylorMade among other communications related items. Miles is a Louisville native and attends Longwood University as a communications major with a focus in Public Relations. A strong golfer in his own right, Miles is a past competitor of the Clark's Pump-N-Shop Kentucky Amateur and Kentucky Open - two events he'll be attempting to qualify for this summer as well.

Erin Rowland

Also making a return appearance to the Golf House Kentucky intern team, Erin Rowland is back after also interning in 2019. A Louisville native who attends Western Kentucky University, Erin studies sport management and is minoring in marketing. Following her graduation in 2022, she wants to work in marketing for a sports team, but ultimately just wants to be in the sports industry in some capacity. Erin was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and also enjoys playing baseball, basketball, volleyvall, tennis, and working out alongside playing golf.

Rebekah Upchurch

Rebekah is from Mercer County and now attending Georgetown College where she majors in engineering while getting a minor in mathematics. Her goal is to become a civil engineer in highway construction and asphalt paving once she completes her education. As a big golf enthusiast, Rebekah is looking forward to sharing her love of golf with others throughout the summer whilst acquiring new leadership skills. Rebekah was adopted after she was born and has a cat named Gus that she insists is the coolest cat in the world.
