Whether you’re a seasoned golfer, new to the game or diving deeper in retirement, Golf & Body NYC is the perfect private club for the New York golf fanatic. Located in the heart of Midtown, is a 25,000 square golfers oasis with unparalleled offerings.
Since opening in 2013, G&BNYC has been home to some of the most influential and powerful people the city has to offer. G&BNYC offers its members a tour pro like experience of golf professionals, fitness coaches, and sports medicine, along with state-of-the-art technology, a Golf Digest Top 100 Club Fitter and some of the finest cuisine in the neighborhood. The facility offers the ability to work on your game all year long without having to leave the city. G&BNYC is truly the number one place to up your golf game while escaping the hustle and bustle of the city.
There are multiple membership categories that cover all lifestyles. All of their categories offer access to wellness consultations, nutritional reviews, complimentary club fittings, top of the line hitting bays and three putting greens for individual practice, full use of the fitness center, priority use of space for events and bag storage for one set of clubs.
Their fully-equipped fitness center, with top-of-the-line equipment, allows members to stay shape whether working out alone or with a trainer. From chiropractic appointments to massages, members receive advanced treatment – after all, you are always treated right at G&BNYC! “While we treat members to help them get back into playing shape our main specialty is injury prevention,” explained Bradley A. Borne, D.C., Director of Sports Medicine and Wellness at the club. “We have full-time therapists, acupuncture, cupping, yoga, and pilates, as well as a 10,000 square foot gym. We are constantly looking to provide our members with the best possible options to maintain their health and build strength. We have recently added a ski ergometer and assault airbike which not only checks the cardio boxes but builds strength and helps to rehab from injury. Our members are busy people, so we give them the most beneficial things to do during that hour of free time every week. We try to customize each program based on our members’ goals and time frame.”
When it comes to how members can best utilize their time at the club, Head Professional Ron McDougal, named one of the best 25 instructors in the state, demonstrated the benefits of some of our equipment and programming not only as it relates to the golf swing but also using the services to build an all-around better lifestyle. “Many of our members spend 40-60 hours a week at their desks, in boardrooms or on planes and they need a beneficial routine for both on and off the course.”
With personalized attention from performance coaches to an in-house chef who can make everything from cauliflower crust pizza to chicken wings, this is one unparalleled private club. The intimate nature of the club also makes it the perfect place to socialize with other members, whether they are CEOs or professional golfers. Each member, who is made to feel like an A-lister, receives an extensive assessment. The golf evaluation is a major component of their membership experience and creates a series of baseline numbers for every aspect of your game, including power, control, and accuracy.
According to General Manager Danielle Kindelmann, “there are other places in the city to hit balls indoors, but G&BNYC strives to help members build a golf swing that will translate to the golf course. In recent years we have built relationships with green grass clubs to give our members the opportunity to take their performance team with them on the course. As far as the member who is more of the leisure type golfer, the club also provides a quiet escape from the noisy bars and restaurants of NYC where members and their guests can enjoy a meal and grab a drink our bar while playing 18 holes!”
Head Professional Ron McDougal highlighted the importance of the member experience when talking about one of the true gems G&BNYC has to offer when it comes to their fitting bay. “A few years back we partnered with Pete’s Golf who has been known as the name in club fitting amongst Long Island golfers for four decades. They offer a brand agnostic club fitting experience that I have never seen a match in 30 plus years I have been in the business. It has been great to add to our member experience but not only offering a Top 100 fitting experience but really incorporate it as part of building the members game when the golf pro is able to take part in the club fitting by adding feedback on golfer tendencies, an experience that isn’t offered in many places!” Although Golf & Body is a members-only club, non-members do have access to club fitting with Pete’s Golf. A few of the other ways to access the club as a non-member would be through hosting a private event which can range anywhere from 10-200 people or through our newly added PT clinic, COAST Rehab of Manasquan, NJ.
With endless entertainment options and a sophisticated bar area that can be transformed into a runway show or team-building retreat, you can go from golf to a grand event without leaving GBNYC!
