About Nate

Golf is a game for the masses. It is a game that I am proud to be associated with via my profession. However, there are certain stigmas that come with the game and the lifestyle surrounding golf. We founded The Modern Golf Club with the mission to alter these elitist stigmas and offer the game’s great transformative powers to all that want to seek them out.

I have spent the past 15 years working in the golf industry starting as a weekend caddie at the local country club in New York during my high school years. With the character traits I learned from golf itself (strength in handling difficult situations, ability to relate and converse with others, unrelenting integrity and a tremendous appreciation for being in the great outdoors) I earned a title as First Assistant Golf Professional/Interim Head Golf Professional at a “Top 100” club.

Even though many people would have said that is a great career path, I felt there was something missing. Today’s golf industry is too dollar focused – the very nature of the business is that golf is a GAME!

So, let’s play!

And let’s allow for everyone to have that great opportunity to enjoy the game you and I love so much.





The best part of this was the personal, quality presentation by Nate. He is very articulate and personable. With Nate's person touch you get more hands on instruction then an usual golf lesson.

​Located in the wooded southeastern part of town and easily accessible from the Bend Parkway, BGC’s tree-lined setting feels secluded and tranquil. The Chandler Egan-designed golf course is the centerpiece of the BGC experience. Since 1925, our 18-hole, 7,000-yard course layout ​has offered the ideal blend of walkability and playability. Our green complexes are among the most pristine you’ll find anywhere. It’s the kind of course you want to play every day, and many of our members do just that.
