Anyone know anything about it?  The website doesn't let you see which courses you have access or cost.  Screw them I'm not interested enough to give you all my contact info.

I’m actually an Eligo member and also belong to a private club.

They keep their clubs close to the vest as to not create a problem with their host clubs membership. I will tell you I have access to some great private tracks that without Eligo or and really connect Pro, I would not be able to play.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I’ll answer the ones I can or pm me if you want.

It’s not cheap but it has a lot of value.

Hope this helps

How does it work? Do you have to be a member at somewhere private? Do you have to pay guest fees when you play or just an annual membership? thanks...

You just pay an annual membership.  You do not have to be a member at a private club at all.  Eligo in essence becomes your private club. You then get access to all their courses.  You set up your round with their concierge, show up pay only cart or caddy fee for the most part.  A couple super high end you may pay $100+. You can bring guests if you like, you are just charged guest fees to your Eligo account as you would your home club. Guest fees are pretty reasonable, most around $100 +/-.
The clubs treat you like a member and really roll out the red carpet.  You are encouraged to stay for the day as you have access to the entire club, locker room, grille room, etc.

They also organize games weekdays for members at these clubs. Some two day events on weekends as well.  It's a lot of golf opportunities at places you would like to play but most times can't without a "hook"

Technically not the same as with Thousand Greens you need to be a member of a course.  As stated you don’t need to be part of a club with Elgio

Also, with Thousand Greens, is it not the case you get access to those in your tier? In other words, you can only access other "similar" reputation courses. Good if you are at a top tier, less cool if you are in the fifth tier.

It will be interesting to see how the TG model evolves. As of now, youíre encouraged to offer rounds to players in lower tiers, but they canít request them. Iíd like to see a shift to where higher tiers are available but eat more ďrequest tokensĒ. A tier 5 guy shouldnít be able to just spam the tier 1 guys with requests - but if the tier 5 guy hosts a ton of TG members, they should have the opportunity to get a high quality round.

As far as the comparison to Eligo, I think most of the Eligo courses would be in the 4th or 3rd TG tiers. Really nice courses, but itís an interesting niche to operate in.

I think the model will evolve over time and they will change access after seeing how it can improve. It becomes more attractive to the tier 1 members when they know that they are protected and will not be harassed for access.

Agree. Itís tricky to build the marketplace out initially, but they should be able to pivot to do some cool stuff once they build some trust among the membership. Honestly, I think most high-tier members would be pretty happy to host ďdeservingĒ (define that as you will) members from lower tiers.

So I read a little about thousand greens. It’s different in that I don’t need to have a host club member coordinate with me for a round and I don’t have to play with a member of that club, similar to buying a 3 some at a charity auction. And for the most part, I don’t have to pay for the round.

Also I can play alone, with another Eligo member,  bring guests/clients, or play in the weekly game. A little less restrictive for sure.

It’s not for everyone, but if you like playing a variety of high end private clubs rather than your home 18 a few days a week then it may make sense.

I think moving forward, business models like this will become the norm. Car manufacturers are doing it with monthly car leases for people that don’t want to get caught up in long term agreements, this is a similar model.

Also, most of the courses you have access to can be played multiple times in a year, some as many as 12 times....

With Eligo.... are any top 100 courses included in their list?  How about the European clubs?

It definitely scratches a different itch than Thousand Greens.

The model will definitely work well for some people. It will be interesting to see how sustainable it is through economic ups and downs - I can imagine that there are many ďbubbleĒ clubs that would happily take the money when times are tight, then get stingy when things are good again.

I completely agree..^^^

The model is aimed at the guy that already belongs to a club but may only play once a week if that. That member would leave their existing 18 hole club and join Eligo with the Eligo membership making him a member at about 20 clubs just in his area if that makes sense..

Access to private Florida clubs for the winter is a nice option as well.

I agree at the higher tier members would more than likely enjoy hosting lower tier members and they are able to do so by listing that in the "offers" section.

Totally; the question is just once the model scales up a bit, how does the Tier 1 member manage the inflow of requests? Right now, the community is small enough that itís not a big deal - but itís going to get more complicated.

eligo has a very good course list but there are time and times per year restrictions on a number of the clubs. for example i can tell you for a fact that private clubs in greater NYC area that have hosted pga tour events in past 30 years are on eligo, but you can only play them during the week, or on a weekend afternoon, and even such, only 1x a month. and eligo is something like 12k annually, at min its 10k a year, max 15k a year. nevertheless, you'd have to get 50 rounds in annually at minimum to really make it worth your while financially.

Pretty pricy indeed.  There are numerous sites with similar services in some form.

Thousandgreens
Outpost
The Eighty Club
boxgroove

There is a market out there or there wouldn't be so many outlets. Will they survive is the question.

outpost is nearly as expensive as eligo and harder to join. 80club / friars GC at a far lower price level, but higher than thousand ggreens and boxgroove.
