What are some memories that stick with you from your years of managing memberships?
The random introductions that magically evolve into friendships & golf foursomes… The trials and tribulations of everyone’s pursuit of perfection… The excitement of a career round or individual achievement… The NYC competitiveness… The ongoing inside jokes… The TERRIBLE swings… The unexpected post-swing profanity… The non-golf networking… The HOLE-IN-ONES… The 6AM money matches… The laughs… The “I need a lesson NOW’s”… The 5i loyalty… The utter love of the game… The dedicated staff… The fact that we are in the middle of Manhattan for all of the above!
Is there anything that makes the 5i membership special to you?
I whole-heartedly believe that our shared struggles are what bring us back day to day. Life in NYC will inevitably train you to persevere, and nothing is more inspiring than a packed house, at 6AM,In the middle of winter. This is a testament to the dedication this sport demands. The game of golf can provide a lifetime of emotion in a just 18 holes (Fear, confidence, elation, disappointment, anger, humor). Real or simulated…We are all searching for our next best shot.
Has managing the 5i membership taught you anything?
Be a friend first… We all started somewhere & this game will drive you mad if you “go it alone”
