The Founders

Built from an idea - A path of Passion

Links Life started unofficially about 25 years ago when Matt Thompson and Ryan Mitchell met in a junior golf tournament at Bryan Park in Greensboro North Carolina. Fast forward almost 30 years later the two long time friends and golf buddies decided they wanted a way out of the corporate grind and also to be part of something they were truly passionate about. While teeing it up like they had done so many times before the idea of Links Life came to fruition. We saw an opportunity to bring a fun and humorous spin to an industry that's been historically up tight and way too serious.    

Bring in Experience - Do it Right

On top of that we tapped in to blue blood corporate veteran Ron Mitchell (Ryan's Dad) for assistance in cultivating the overall corporate mission. His experience as VP/President of the fortune 500 company VF corporation has contributed valuable insight into the inner workings of starting new brands similar to what he did in Canada, South America & Mexico. Ron has worked in over 40 different countries and post corporate life started a family business where we own and operate 3 dominos pizzas.
