True Spec Golf Opens Fitting Center at Golf & Body NYC
True Spec custom fitting centers combine an industry-leading selection of premium golf clubs and shafts with cutting-edge fitting technologies to bring the highest level of performance and precision to a golfer’s game.
The company’s fitting centers are brand agnostic, which means they stock the best equipment from golf’s most respected equipment manufacturers to ensure its customers will add distance, accuracy and consistency to their games. True Spec’s custom fitting experts use the same technologies trusted by the best golfers in the world, including Trackman Doppler Radar launch monitors and SST Pure technology, the No. 1 shaft alignment technology in the world.
Custom fitting is the latest amenity offered to members of GBNYC, who have access to complete golf practice areas with full-screen simulators and other high-tech training devices; a state-of-the-art fitness area with special equipment and trainers who specialize in getting golfers in shape to play better; and a host of wellness services from yoga to massage.
GBNYC also announced a three-month trial summer membership perfect for golfers who want to work on their games indoors during the week and see the results—from lower scores to a healthier body—on the weekend.
“Just as GBNYC leaves nothing to chance in helping its members play and feel better, we leave nothing to chance in our club fitting or club building procedures,” said True Spec Golf CEO Nelson Long. “We stock a wide selection of golf’s best equipment to guarantee that we can help every golfer who walks through our doors, and rigorously test each component before and after assembly. This eliminates the inconsistencies that are common in off-the-rack equipment purchases and allows us to maintain the tightest tolerances in the industry.”
Additional True Spec Golf locations include Nassau, Bahamas, part of the world-renowned Albany Luxury Resort Community and in November, a third location will open at The Biltmore Hotel in Miami, Fla.
For additional information contact True Spec Golf at (844) 729-8809 or visit its website, www.truespecgolf.com.
Fittings are also available through True Spec’s Mobile Fitting Unit, which travels to select golf clubs in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and other states located along the East Coast of the United States.

to exclusive golf experiences in and around New York City
Founded five years ago in Europe and recently expanded into the U.S., Eligo—which in Latin means, “to select”—uses golf as a platform for its members to network and entertain friends and business colleagues at the finest private clubs and courses. The association with Golf & Body NYC is one more way Eligo’s members will be able to enjoy a private and prestigious golf experience.
“Golf & Body is an elite facility run to the same high standards as the other clubs we offer access to,” says Tom Guy, Eligo’s Director of Golf for North America. “Fitness is an important part of golf and Golf & Body provides our members with the best possible training facilities, and much more, when they’re in New York, one of the world’s most important business cities.”
For members of Golf & Body, the Eligo Club can help facilitate rounds of golf on some of the top courses around New York City—a tough market for players who don’t already belong to a private club—as well as courses in Europe and Asia.
“If our members choose to add Eligo to their current memberships, they can access great courses close by and far away,” explains Jeannine Harrington, General Manager of Golf & Body NYC. “With Eligo, we can offer another part of the private-club experience to our members. Since we opened, Golf & Body has been the best place in New York for golfers to get better and get fit. Now we offer our members the opportunity to get out to play with their friends and business associates at some of best courses in the area. It’s a very exciting venture for us.”
Members of both clubs will be offered many different ways to make use of the other’s playing and training options.
“Golf & Body offers a perfect synergy with the Eligo Club,” says Guy. “Our members will love Golf & Body and its members will love Eligo. We are combining a private city club with the rest of the world, and we are confident that members of each will derive great pleasure and benefits from the other.”

Lloyd Shulman and his sister Gail Koster have taken on the role of investing their own money into this South Shore gem known as Middle Bay. This club devastated by Sandy is now being run by the property owners of over 50+ years.
As the director of golf and a club professional here for over 14 years I see significant changes already and who better to take on this task then the person who has a passion for the property that has been in his family for over a half a century. His loyalty to the property is unrivaled by other potential management teams and the purchases of a new equipment fleet as well as 80 new golf carts, a half a dozen new utility vehicles and the redesign of a new 1/2way house/cafe at the turn is a testament to his commitment.
Justin Buhler, former assistant at the Meadowbrook club, is on his way to restoring Middle Bay to the way it once was. Who better to have then Head Green Superintendent John Carlone of the Meadowbrook club the former Middle Bay Superintendent a phone call away for a smooth transition. Lloyd Shulman's dedication to this property will benefit the business, the golf course the community and the entire golfing industry -- and I am eager to display my knowledge and ability to making this one of the most popular South Shore golf courses in New York. It gives me great pleasure to work with Shulman and Sal Cappuzzo the COO of Shulman's management empire.
Now open to the public there will be weekday and weekend rates, senior discounts Monday through Friday, discounts for servicemen, veterans, police and firemen with proper ID on weekdays. A full-service pro shop with all the major brands in apparel, equipment, accessories, shoes and gripping services as well as a full staff of PGA teaching professionals and apprentices who have already been put in place for beginner clinics, junior clinics, as well as individual instruction both on and off the course. There are preferred tee times available for purchase on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings and a full length driving range that is open to the public every day. Reservations can be made seven days in advance by phone or soon via our newly designed website. We are accepting outings of all sizes, so please call the golf shop for all additional information.
