Dave Swenson was born and raised in NH and has resided in Loudon for the past 25 years. As a young man, he was working at Concord Country Club mowing fairways and greens, and became interested in the game of golf in 1981 and he has never given up chasing the white ball from tee’s to green’s since then.
Recently, Dave sold his Snap-On Tools Franchise which he successfully operated for the past 32 years and numerous times was one of the top 100 Franchise owners in the US. Now retired, he has plenty of time to spend with his wife Karen of 36 years, their new granddaughter, and their dog Flicka who they recently rescued from Tenn. He has a son that lives in Texas, and a daughter that lives locally, who are both excelling in their careers.
Dave served for 10 years on The Board of Directors for Speedway Children’s Charities at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and was the event director for the annual “one for the kids” Golf Tournament for several years, as well as many other events we held year-round.
In addition to First Tee, he is on the Board of Directors at the New England Racing Museum, Loudon, NH. He is incredibly excited to start this new chapter in his life life by helping First Tee – NH reach their many significant goals, which he knows will ultimately filter down to provide children a better opportunity in life.
