GLN, Fleishman to push Virginia business

Golf Life Navigators Partners with Jeff Fleishman to Drive Virginia Expansion

(NAPLES, Fla.)Golf Life Navigators (GLN) – the world’s only marketplace for consumer-to-club connections – has partnered with industry veteran Jeff Fleishman to drive private club expansion into Virginia.

With strong market penetration across the Sun Belt, Fleishman will oversee GLN’s growth and business development in Virginia. He will foster expansion of memberships with private clubs in the region leveraging the myriad benefits of GLN’s “Showcase Clubs” program.


Fleishman brings more than 40 years of experience in the private club industry throughout the mid-Atlantic. He has spent the last 26 years as President of Golf Business Advisors, a company he founded in 1992 to help clubs with a variety of marketing and business consulting services. Previously, Fleishman spent 17 years in golf management, marketing and resort operations at Kingsmill on the James in Williamsburg, VA.

“Virginia has long been a destination for retirees from the Northeast U.S. and the Golf Life Navigators model is ideal to help private clubs showcase their properties to targeted perspective members,” says Fleishman. “I am excited to help the team continue to expand a model that has already proven to be a tremendous success.”

“2018 was a year of impressive growth for our company and 2019 already looks to banner year,” says Jason Becker, GLN CEO. “Jeff’s unmatched industry experience and wealth of regional knowledge will play a vital role as we look to bring private clubs throughout Virginia into the Golf Life Navigators family.”

Based in South Florida with an active presence across the U.S, GLN uses 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 and Virginia. GLN’s properties division identifies 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 8,600 golfers completed the free, 10-minute questionnaire. From the results, up to six “best-matched clubs” are presented for consideration.
