Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
What goods or services do you provide? We’re a year ’round indoor golf instruction and practice facility.
What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from your competition? We’re the only indoor golf facility in the Vail Valley.
What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? What can your customers expect from you? We offer a great golfing experience, year round, and no matter the weather. Our customers can expect to have fun when they tee it up at our place.
Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: I’m a 30-year resident of the Vail Valley, a retired professional mogul skier, still a member of the one and only Vail Precision Lawn Chair Drill Team, a full time real estate broker with RE/MAX Vail Valley and owner of numerous local businesses including The Silver Buckle. I also still teach skiing part-time.
What is the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? We have a large mural of Augusta Golf Club – home of The Masters -and taking pictures in front of it makes it look like you were really there. I’ve received some funny comments from people wondering when I was there!
