Victory Golf & Events
PGA pro Josh McKim had already been in the golf industry for more than a decade when he decided to found Victory Golf & Events in 2012. Through the company, he ties together some seemingly disparate skills—event management, retail sales, and showing others how to golf well enough that galleries start forming as soon as they leave the house. He boasts authorized retailer status for Nike Golf, allowing him to conduct free fittings for purchases of all clubs and order the needed specs directly from the manufacturer. As point man for the event management and planning wing of the firm, he's hosted more than 500 charity and corporate events and helped raise more than $1 million for charities, handling all aspects of the production from venue selection and contracts to marketing and logistics.
