Bobbie Jo F. - Versailles Server

"Being given the opportunity to take on a 12 month internship at Chateau Élan Winery and Resort has developed into the most influential year of my life. Studying BA (Hons) Golf Management at the University of the Highlands and Islands in Dornoch, Scotland, there is no better place in the world to build up firsthand experience in the golf industry than in the United States of America.

My decision to go into the golfing industry at a professional level was to introduce my passion into my work that the sport has provided me over the years. My time at Chateau Élan has given me the opportunity to develop all of the indispensible skills and techniques needed to run a very successful golfing resort, whilst aiding the development of my coaching knowledge. I cannot speak highly enough of how an enjoyable experience my time here has been."

Steven K - Golf Intern

"I’ve been a member of the Chateau Élan team for 6 years, I still get a special feeling when I pull onto property. I am so lucky to work at such a beautiful place that really appreciates their employees. I am proud to work for a strong company that has a passion for service and constantly strives to improve the property and the guest’s experience. I have enjoyed working in reservations because I feel this is the heart of the resort and I am the guest’s first impression. I am excited to learn more as I grow with the company. I am thankful to be a part of the Chateau Élan family."

Amanda W. - Lead Resort Sales Coordinator

"I come from a background of well-managed corporations and have worked at some of the most exclusive resorts in the world and nothing compares to the experience I’ve encountered as an employee at Chateau Élan. As someone with an insatiable passion for the wine industry and a background in hotels, Chateau Élan seemed to be the perfect fit to grow my career but I never could have imagined how much I would enjoy and appreciate where I work. From the CEO to each department, there’s a feeling that we’re in this together and I wake up every morning ready to get back to work with this awesome team. I truly love where I work!"
