Golf Life Navigators Foresees Continued Growth in 2019

(NAPLES, Fla.)Golf Life Navigators (GLN) – the world’s only virtual marketplace for consumer-to-club connections – foresees continued growth following a banner year in 2018 doubling the number of private clubs taking advantage of GLN’s proprietary algorithm.

With recent expansion into Virginia and Georgia GLN is now active in six states with 36 total markets and more than 700 private clubs benefiting from its unique system of matching them with ideal prospective members. By the end of the 1st quarter of 2019, the GLN team plans to launch operations in the golf rich markets of California and Texas along with anticipated expansion in Tennessee, Louisiana and Alabama scheduled for the second half of 2019.

“We’re proud of the work our team has put into growing GLN into a scalable model and excited for the next chapter of growth,” says Jason Becker, GLN CEO. “2018 was a great year for us and the expansion plans we have in motion are encouraging for those clubs who have been awaiting GLN to enter their region of the country.”

With over 138,300 data points on private clubs across the Sunbelt and 1.2 million data points from prospective buyers, GLN is the No. 1 source for consumers and clubs looking to find a perfect membership match.

"We are extremely excited and proud that a group of PGA Professionals have launched this incredible company,” says Seth Waugh, CEO of the PGA of America. “This will increase employment opportunities for PGA Members, as well as provide proprietary consumer data to educate our professionals to be better connected to their membership and player base.”

Based in South Florida with an active presence across the U.S, GLN also showcases the unique algorithm of its automated online ProGuide³ questionnaire to create a stress-free targeted marketplace for “best-matched” potential members with golf and country club options in Florida, Arizona, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, California, Texas and Georgia. GLN’s real estate experts, Golf Life Properties, identify primary and secondary residences in golf and non-golf communities.

GLN’s unique ProGuide³ has been referred to as “eHarmony meets Zillow for golf” and focuses on three crucial criteria when identifying “matching” clubs: golf, amenities and lifestyle. To date, more than 10,000 golfers completed the free, 10-minute questionnaire. From the results, up to six “best-matched clubs” are presented for consideration.
