Schmitt’s website expertise keeps VEMA members informed


Mike Schmitt, a native of Florida, is a lifelong resident of Melbourne. That makes him unique since so many of Viera East Men's Golf Association members come from different parts of the country.

Schmitt and his wife, endearingly called Dr. Rose, have been married for 47 years. They have two married sons and three grandchildren.

After enlisting and serving in the U.S. Army, Schmitt went to work in the auto body repair field. He created Mike’s Auto Body in 1979.

In 1985, Schmitt sold his business. He then taught himself the intricacies of computer programming and its hardware.

During the learning process, he created many custom systems that were used in local businesses. He eventually ended up spending almost 20 years with Next Day Blinds as an IT vice president.

In retirement, Schmitt plays in the men’s golf leagues at Viera East and Mallards Landing. He also has been involved in the creation and maintenance of the websites for the two golf venues.

VEMA members love the website ( he created since they can see up-to-date scores, scores of past events, handicaps and sign-up sheets for golf events.
