Golf Life Navigators Names Jeff Mangan CEO and Broker of Record for Golf Life Properties

(NAPLES, Fla.) – Golf Life Navigators (GLN) – providing the only marketplace in the world for consumer-to-club connections – has named industry veteran Jeff Mangan as CEO and Broker of Record for its Golf Life Properties.
Mangan brings more than 25 years of experience in the private club industry, primarily in Florida and Arizona. Initially, Mangan worked in Florida’s Collier County with golf-centric community developers from start to turnover. During the past seven years he served as CEO of the historic Phoenix Country Club where he played an integral role in securing the facility as the host site of the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, a PGA Champions Tour event.
Golf Life Properties is GLN’s in-house real-estate brokerage arm specializing in golf course homes and real estate communities. As CEO and Broker of Record, Mangan will work closely with the GLN team to offer consumers a unique look at real estate trends as they evolve in golf communities across the Sun Belt.
“I’m excited to be joining the Golf Life Navigators team in their mission to help golfers make informed decisions when searching for their ideal private club lifestyle,” said Jeff Mangan. “The resources that GLN provides are untapped by the general consumer, and I look forward to contributing towards the goal of making Golf Life Navigators a household name.”
“Our mission at Golf Life Navigators is to streamline the relocation process and Golf Life Properties plays a vital role in that mission,” says Jason Becker, GLN’s CEO. “Jeff brings a wealth of industry experience and knowledge that will allow us to continue to expand our national reach and ensure golfers across the country make informed decisions when choosing the right private club and home for their lifestyle.”

Becker adds, “At the end of the day, this is a major investment for consumers and we recognize the benefit in providing the real estate data we have in our system to help with those decisions.”

Based in South Florida with an active presence across the U.S, GLN uses the unique algorithm of its automated online ProGuide³ questionnaire to create a stress-free targeted marketplace for “best-matched” potential members with golf and country club options in Florida, Arizona, North Carolina and South Carolina. GLN’s properties division identifies primary and secondary residences in golf and non-golf communities.
GLN’s unique ProGuide³ has been referred to as “eHarmony meets Zillow for golf” and focuses on three crucial criteria when identifying “matching” clubs:  golf, amenities and lifestyle.  To date, more than 8,600 golfers completed the free, 10-minute questionnaire. From the results, up to six “best-matched clubs” are presented for consideration.
