Roll Call: Atlanta - BJGC consultancy thread

then pray you don’t hit all that cart path

They’ve planted a bunch of trees to stop the green path unfortunately. Going to take years for that to happen but it was fun to have the option.

I deleted my post as I was thinking of the wrong hole…this place is so dang confusing.

I was thinking of the other par 5 that you can go right up towards the par 3 green.

This is more like how I played it both times:

Totally. But years before you can’t get over the trees they planted.

Get involved @hojo16. Got any friends? Get them involved too.

Curious if anyone else in Atlanta has come across Intown or been in any dicussions with them and where the idea sits within the collective ethos…

Concept is a private social club with a buckhead location that will have a bar / food plus like 8-10 full trackman simulators. Looking to expand to other markets and potentially a second atlanta location. Found out about it a few months ago and met the founder but haven’t really done anything since.

Fall 2020 still gives them a lot of time for build-out. Would definitely have to build up the right kind of environment to make me become a member (depending on price). But it’s a cool concept and would rather go there with my golf friends instead of Top Golf. I think I’d find myself opting for Top Golf more often though because of the fact that it’s so accessible to non-golfers. Don’t know why country clubs don’t put the money in towards these things instead of other irrelevant build-outs.

I think the concept is really cool. Also feels like the brainchild of Atlanta country club elite who want a guys hangout in town that isn’t their clubhouse. Would feel like a collective of 30-50 year old members at Peachtree, Cherokee, Piedmont, ansley and ACC.

I met some of the guys associated with it and the founder. Very cool concept, but I’m not sure who the target member would be.

I belong to one club (2 counting BCN) with a real golf course, so I’m going to spend on trips vs another local option. With their location and amenities, I think it will be somewhat premium-priced, presumably drawing from the Buckhead peeps. Lastly, I am terrible on a simulator and do not enjoy the range much less a simulated range.

More power to them to make golf relevant to more people in more ways. I think it would eventually be something that would offer trips and access to other places, similar to an Outpost Club / New Club.

Fair critique. Interestingly, it’s not so much that. Maybe the money is coming from there a little bit but it actually started out of Atlanta Tech Village incubator. Its invite only and based on the guy I talked to, they’re specifically curating the membership for diversity. But I think it will still lean towards that inevitably.

Hmm. I love the concept of outpost club/new club and such. I think if they can partner with some private clubs or good public tracks. It’d be an incredibly attractive thing!

Good food and a foul weather option for golf-adjacent activities would kill at any club.

It’s shocking that Atlanta clubs with downtown facilities don’t have them already.

I think that type of stuff will just come naturally from it - it’s an upscale, private social club with people who are probably going to be members at some sick places that you’ll become friends with.

I think their goal is definitely to sell the social club aspect of it. Just come hang out here. We coincidentally have a state of the art indoor practice facility.

Way in on the concept of its some sort of club without a club like New Club, etc.

What would you think is a fair price point per month? Their upfront cost on 10 simulators and Buckhead real estate won’t come cheap.

Edit: what would you be willing to pay?

Maybe somewhere between $50-100/month?

Hmmm. I play golf 4 times a month? 4x$50 give or take. $200 there, another $150 on top for a total thats high, but not terrible.

Would love to be able to get in 24/7. Or at least until midnight on weekdays. If I lived close enough, could easily see myself going there ~9pm just to swing and have a drink until 11pm. I wonder what guest fees would be. Assuming paying the membership means I can play whenever a bay is available (vs paying to get access to tee times), I could see paying $200 a month. $350 for a family rate. I’d want guest fees to land around $40.
