This past June, G&BNYC hosted the Meiomi Pinot Putt Off to celebrate Meiomi becoming the official wine of the PGA Tour. At this one-of-a-kind event, “guests could pose for photos on grass in front of a step-and-repeat created with succulents.” The succulent wall created by ES Blooms & La Force, was an excellent addition to our sophisticated golf backdrop!

Guests took home special Meiomi Wine and Golf themed cookies from Cades Cakes.

“Viktor Hovland and Matthew Wolff both made their professional debuts at the Travelers last week. Their distinctive golf swings caught the eye of many on social media and the golf world alike. These two players exemplify the same unique qualities of a golf swing that I have procured from my time spent learning and working alongside Chris Como.
To me, no two human beings are alike. As a coach, I embrace each specific individual's body type, athletic abilities, kinematics, allocation time to practice, habits, and feels. This corresponds to the approach we take at Golf & Body. In the initial Golf, Fitness, and Mobility Assessments we curtail a specialized training regimen balancing these three foundational pillars. Every golfer hopes to add an extra 10-20 yards to their drive, but it ultimately starts with the body being in a place that will allow for improvement and success. At Golf & Body, we do not have a model or system that we follow, but instead direct our Members down their own obtainable, efficient, and unique path.
In my own teaching, I preach the idea of “different strokes for different folks”. No one golfer is the same and therefore, no one lesson is the same. To me, this approach produces results.” -Collin Woods
“In Viktor and Matthew’s case, they each have their own feels and techniques that uniquely suit them as golfers. As a coach, I appreciate the uniqueness and individuality that each player has. A lot can be learned from these two, in order to figure out what golf swing would work best for you.” -Collin Woods
Hailing from Charleston, SC, Chef Joc comes to the G&B Cafe with over 10 years cooking experience in high-end restaurants, resorts, catering and private dining. Chef Joc completed his Bachelor’s Degree from Mars Hill University and later received his Culinary Science degree from the Culinary Institute of Charleston. His approach to food is summed up in one line; “with a southern heart, I strive to provide southern hospitality and flavors using fresh, healthy ingredients.” A “gastro-cuisine” chef at heart, Chef Joc’s style accommodates all types of diets including keto-friendly, gluten-free, paleo, vegetarian and more.
We asked Joc to talk more about the Member experience here at G&B, and about his team which consists of 3 other chefs who work beside him each day in the G&B Cafe!
Here’s what Joc had to say, “the Members at G&BNYC create a great community and a fun family-like atmosphere, and it’s easy to make good food for your family. I want to ensure that our Members are getting top service at all hours of the day, we open at 5am and are ready to take on the day eager to make some of our Breakfast Specials for the earlybirds! By lunchtime it’s usually pretty busy, it is important to me that the cafe staff is prepared for the afternoon rush. We create a new lunch and dinner special each week using the freshest ingredients possible to fulfill our Member’s dietary needs. One of my favorite specials going into the summer has been the Crispy Rainbow Trout with Pickled Mushroom Salad. This pan seared marinated trout with spicy pickled mushroom salad, is perfect keto-friendly meal that gives you that clean eating feeling I strive to evoke.”
Chef Joc and his team are mastering the art of cooking in the G&B Cafe.
