‘Enjoy life to its fullest’: Five minutes with Jason Back, 34, club pro at Yampa Valley Golf Course

Where is your hometown? “Meeker.” What brought you to Craig? “We moved here in 2004. My wife went to work in Steamboat and I worked at Colowyo.” Motto or outlook on life? “Have fun and enjoy life to its fullest. I was in a serious car wreck seven years ago, and it can end at any time, so make sure you enjoy every second of it.” When did you first get started in your job? “I’ve always been involved in the golf industry. I’ve been playing since I was 11 years old. I worked at the Meeker course when I lived there. I just started helping out here and then it took off from there. I took my playability test two years ago, and now I’m just getting through the bookwork and doing all that to continue.”
