Body Shop
Two Floors of Golf and Fitness

Golf season right now is... well, it’s a fantasy, is what it is.

But there’s a place. A place where golf balls flow like waterfalls year-round. Where January swing practice gives birth to perfect June drives.

Plus there are massages.

That place: Golf & Body NYC, home to two floors of members-only golf immersion in the form of pro lessons, back alignments, “business” lunches and the occasional cocktail, all designed to turn you into John Daly on his best day. They’re open and accepting members now, and here’s what you need to know.

Your training is... legit. You’ll start with swing evaluations and fitness diagnostics. They’re supervised by a training team that, between them, has helped out Luke Donald and Webb Simpson. (And it seems to have worked out for them.)

Whatever you need, it’s taken care of. Club storage: no problem. You need to be fitted for new clubs: got it. You’re going to Bali and want them shipped: consider it done. Contoured-putting-green reservations: check. You require three one-on-one swing and fitness lessons per week, with an acupuncture session and a protein shake: yes, master.

You can play beautiful, sunny Pebble Beach in the middle of a cold, dreary Manhattan afternoon. The simulators make it happen. They’re curtained off, leather-chair adorned and fully waitstaffed.

Tell your slice it’s been real.
