Matthew Kinney

My name is Matt and I am a boarding school teacher living in Midcoast Maine. When I am not teaching history or coaching swimming and lacrosse, I am exploring the local golf in Maine. I have blended my passion for history, reading, and golf and have found myself at the start of a lifelong journey exploring the rich history or sport. I have fallen in love with the journey associated with experiencing good golf, and I hope that I can offer insight, opinion, and perhaps a history lesson along the way.

I am lucky to have escapes all over the country and I play most of my golf in New England, Washington, and Colorado. I have plans to travel more internationally with my clubs and my surfboard
