Who we Are

Our Mission

The aim of Boston Golf & Social is simple: to bring together Greater Boston’s thriving golf community to play fun, competitive, memorable rounds of golf at some of the area’s most interesting golf courses.As one of America’s best and most storied golf cities, we have an abundance of classic, architecturally fascinating courses, and thousands of golf-mad, weather-resistant players filling up tee sheets and driving ranges across the region. What we lack is a central hub—what the Brits call a “company” (think the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, absent the stuffiness and aversion to women).We want to provide a means for Boston’s golfers to meet up, hit the simulator when the snow flies, exchange ideas, debate the merits of cross-handed putting, and (most importantly) do what we all love to do: play golf.

Meet the Team

Jesse Struebing

Owner / Instructor

A teacher of the game and a sucker for trying to shape a high draw even (sometimes especially) when the shot doesn't call for it. I have been teaching for 19 years and have always had a lot of curiosity when it comes to golf course architecture and construction. It's my goal to share with you my love for golf and its many lesser-known but unrivaled venues.

Robbie Vogel

Associate

Growing up in Scituate, I played Widow’s Walk almost exclusively for most of my childhood golf career. Once I branched out, I was pleasantly surprised to find that most other golf courses don’t penalize a missed fairway with an automatic lost ball. I now live in Quincy with my wife and carry a 10 handicap, though I’m equally capable of passing for a 4 or a 20 depending on a variety of factors. In my day job I work as a copywriter for a travel company, where I spend an inordinate amount of time scouring Google Maps for foreign golf courses.
