Our Mission

To assist our clients in determining and meeting their objectives in the golf industry.

Since its inception in 1993, Golf Business Advisors (GBA) has been committed to fulfilling this mission. Based in Williamsburg, Virginia, GBA has worked with over 400 clients, including resort, municipal, daily fee and private clubs.

Our expertise lies in Executive Searches, Membership Sales & Marketing, Member Surveys, Feasibility and Development, Golf Operations, Project Management and Course Brokerage.

Our extensive experience provides us with a first hand understanding of all the components of ownership—valueable insight which we continually share with our clients. This ensures that GBA consistently integrates an owner's perspective with solid management strategies.

Our commitment to our clients is mirrored by our passion for the golf industry as a whole. In addition to building the company we are today, GBA President Jeff Fleishman has served as a volunteer for many years—as a Board member and President of the Virginia State Golf Association, the Virginia State Golf Association Foundation, and the Middle Atlantic Golf Association, as well as a Committee member for the United States Golf Association, and Chairman of Golf for the US Team for Maccabi USA and the Maccabiah Games.
