    Eric Hejl joins The Local Drive – Longmont after spending the past 7 seasons at nearby Lake Valley Golf Club as an Assistant Professional. During this time Eric gained valuable experience as an instructor for a wide range of golfers including, beginners, juniors, low-handicappers, and women. Eric’s passion for competition and coaching isn’t limited to golf. He has experience coaching a variety of other sports, primarily high school basketball for over 10 years.
