Golf & Body NYC Featured in The Dapper Drive

Golf & Body NYC was honored to host The Dapper Drive as the first stop on their golf road trip "The Spring to Streamsong"! This 10-day trip from New York to Florida kicked off with a reception at the club.

Jordan Griggs, founder, author and amateur golfer said of Golf & Body NYC, "Having lived in Manhattan for 3-years myself, I know what a struggle it can be to keep the golf game sharp. While members enjoy practicing on the same simulators you might smack balls into during an event, the use of trackman and a lineup of decorated PGA instructors take the experience one step further. From fixing a slice to dialing in your numbers or fitting-up the perfect set of custom clubs, Golf & Body NYC really offers it all.”

GBNYC Member, Stewart Hagestad, Featured in Golf Digest September Issue

GD0917_PLAY_HAGESTAD[2].jpg

Stew Hagestad, low amateur of the 2017 Masters, qualifier for the U.S. Open and esteemed Golf & Body member was recently featured in Golf Digest's September issue with GBNYC mentioned as one of the places that aided in the preparation for his success.   

"Puzzling as Hagestad’s decision to not turn pro might seem, the lesson is that the best golf of your life can happen at any moment. A few years out of college working in Manhattan as a financial analyst, seeing kids he knew from junior golf playing on TV, this would’ve been the traditional time to let his game go downhill. Instead, Hagestad joined Deepdale (N.Y.) Golf Club as a junior member and made a habit of dawn practice sessions. Then, after work, he’d hit up Golf & Body NYC, a private gym with golf simulators a short walk from his apartment."
