Eastside Golf Introduces 2024 Summer Interns

Eastside Golf is all about impacting the lives of young people through golf. Afterall, many people on our team, including executives Olajuwon Ajanaku and Earl Cooper, understand first hand how the game can change the course of someone’s life.

That’s why, the team is thrilled to announce the commencement of our Summer 2024 Internship Program, which kicked off on June 4th. There are two deserving interns. First up, Nicholas Hosten, a sophomore at Morehouse College, the alma mater of Cooper and Ajanaku. Then there’s E.J. Sorensen Jr., who’s pursuing his passion for business and golf at Keiser University.

We’ve designed an immersive and comprehensive program to provide our interns with invaluable experiences across various departments, including Product, Sales, Content and Executive Leadership.
