Our Mission

At Neighborhood National our mission is to make exclusive golf easily accessible and inclusive for everyone. ​With a twist on the peer-to-peer economy, we wrap high-end simulator sharing into a fun and laid-back club right there in the neighborhood... or the office, maybe community space of an apartment building, or extra space in a warehouse.  We don't care if the space is fancy, so long as it can fit a fancy simulator. Our Members get unlimited access to world class technology for a fraction of the cost to own.  Our Club Pros (hosts) get a high-end sim that will pay for itself.  While everyone in the club enjoys hassle-free golf with an unmatched combination of convenience, affordability, and fun.​ We aim to become the world's largest private golf club... ...that literally anyone can belong to.

Our vision

Become the largest private golf club in the world… ...that literally anyone can belong to.​ Games, contests, leagues, and tournaments. ​ Instruction.  Fitness.  Networking and fun.​ While we aspire to grow the traditional game through our success.  There is nothing you can get with the traditional game that we won’t look to provide in time within Neighborhood National.​ All minutes from your house.  All high-end.  All a fraction of the cost you’d traditionally pay. We’ll deliver this experience in various ways.  One of which will be trusted partnerships that we will continually summarize below.  Feel free to contact us with questions or reach out to our partners directly.

Neighborhood National no. 1

In 2022 our founder (Jeff) mentioned to his wife that he was thinking about putting a nice simulator in the garage and seeing if the neighborhood would be interested in using it.

Her response… “OK, that sounds good.”  And Neighborhood National No. 1 was born.  In a crummy garage.  With a nice sim.  In the Sunset Hills neighborhood of Greensboro, NC.

With clear neighborhood interest here and elsewhere, we are expanding and look forward to adding Neighborhood National to the list of great ideas that started in a crummy garage.

Background Checks

As a members only club, with memberships limited and made up of golfers who live and work nearby, our approach is set up to inherently mitigate the understandable "stranger danger" concerns.  

Separately, we enforce a strict "1 strike and you're out" policy for all members, and prior to joining members must pass a background check conducted by Checkr as part of our application process.  

 

From Uber, to DoorDash, to Kimpton Hotels, Checkr supports background checks for over 15K companies making it a leader in the industry and great partner to help ensure the safety, security, and peace of mind for our neighborhood.

Insurance

Accidents happen, that's a fact of life.

While your property insurance should cover all incidence related to personal use of your simulator (you will need to confirm), our partnership with Marsh McLennan will make sure that the same protection is in place for any incidence involving Neighborhood National members and their guests.

 

MMA is the world's leading business insurance provider.  They understand the unique nature of the Neighborhood National network and created a unique program to remove the hassle along with the worry.  By streamlining the process and allowing us to bundle insurance coverage into the monthly NN admin fee, we can ensure that proper coverage is in place without our Club Pros needing to worry about it.

Membership and Booking Management

There are countless scheduling and booking management options that exist.

There are few that exist with the knowledge and know-how unique to running a golf simulator business.

There is one that exists with that knowledge and experience in supporting the management of multi-location businesses.

USchedule is a leader in the industry supporting the leaders of the industry - including Topgolf and X-Golf.  Excited to have them in the neighborhood, we have partnered to create a unique platform allowing us to provide customized memberships by location, with the ability to easily manage membership across all locations.  In short, a perfect partner to make sure that membership, booking, and finance management are nothing our Club Pros need to worry about.

Game Management

By allowing simulators across manufacturers to be part of Neighborhood National we aim to be flexible in who can be part of the club.  However, our approach creates a challenge to manage contests, leagues, and tournaments that span software.

Challenge solved with our Golf Genius partnership and the program they tailored to accommodate the difference in our model vs green grass clubs. 

 

A leader in all things golf operations software - golfers will be most familiar with Golf Genius for their industry leading league and tournament management platform providing players easy access to contest info and real time leaderboard visibility.  

With GG part of the neighborhood, our members will have real time access to any and all of the fun that we will manage across all clubs - regardless of the location, type of space, and most importantly the type of simulator they might be playing on.
