Hello all,

Hoping to get some feedback about the correct way to structure a business name for a different kind of practitioner listing.

New client is a golf instructor at a local golf course. He has his own phone number, but he resides at this golf course to do instructions.

Would you just use his business name and add a suite # to the address or would you create a practitioner listing and use the main address?

Thanks!

It sounds like he does all the instructing at the gold course so he should definitely use the golf course address (not an SAB where he goes out to client's houses). Don't bother using a suite number, they don't make anything unique. Google will still consider this the same location with or without the suite. Unless you use different categories, his listing will compete with the one for the golf course.

Thank you guys so much for the responses!!!

I reached out to the client to figure out if he's employed by the country club and/or if he does lessons elsewhere.
