Role: Golf Course Superintendent
Serving Since: 2007

Mike Veile is a native to Colorado, born and raised in Estes Park. He has always enjoyed and participated in athletics, which influenced his decision to follow his passion in the golf industry. After graduating from Estes Park High School, he attended college in Florida, where he received his degree in turf grass management.  Since then, his career has led him to work at many prestigious golf clubs, including the Estes Park Golf Course (where he started at age 13), various clubs in Florida, the Vail Golf Club, and Eagle Springs.

Mike was given the opportunity in 2007 to be employed at Fort Collins Country Club and was offered his current position as Superintendent in 2012.
