May I make additional investments after I pay an initial $500 investment?

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on July 18
You certainly can. Your additional investment can be any amount you wish over the $500 minimum. If you'd like to, feel free to call me any time at (727) 243-2050.

Alberto on July 25
From your Q&A, I understand you are raising $50M, when do you plan to close? How much cap you have raised as of now? You plan to open 100 centers ... are the $50M enough ... or you need to raise more? Do you have a business plan available for Investors? Thanks

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on September 26
We are actually making multiple closes, as stated in the offering circular. As to $50M and 100 locations, $50M could provide equity for as many as 6 or 7 locations. Additional capital will be raised for more. The business plan is available inside the offering circular.

When are you breaking ground on the first Suite? 2nd Suite?

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on September 27
Regulation A+ does not allow us to make forward looking statements.

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on October 02
We have gotten a few similar questions in regards to the one below, so we are posting on the comment board so that anyone can have clarification: Q: Is it possible to invest more in the future? A: Yes, you are able to invest more on a future date while the Reg A+ offering is open.

Is there a plan in place to open a facility in Las Vegas?

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on October 17
Hi Patrick! Since this current offering is qualified by the SEC for some midwest US states, Las Vegas is not a part of this one. But we are always looking for good sites and upon SEC qualification for future zones, we would definitely be interested in this market!

Carlas Hunt on October 11
Do you all do franchising?

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on October 17
Hi Carlas, no plans for franchising at the moment.

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on October 17
Thanks Robert, and these are great ideas! Since this particular offering is for the midwest US, the NY/NJ area is not in the equation for now. But upon SEC qualification for our future zones, we will definitely take this into consideration!

How do we get our Investor ID?

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on October 17
We have gotten a few questions like this by email, so we are posting to the comments page for all to see: Q: What are costs, construction times, and what is the criteria for opening new sites? A: Facility costs are dependent on where we build, particularly land costs and how many suites we plan, which currently range between 60 and 100 (we call a “suite” the actual spot where customers will hit balls). This causes a wide range between $20 and $40 million. Time of construction is about one year and we are supervising construction with in-house management overseeing independent licensed general contractors. We currently are projecting sites in Detroit, Des Moines, Madison and other similar cities. As for site selection, our base criteria include land cost (projected between $2 and $6 million), timing of entitlements (zoning, permitting, etc.), labor costs and availability, and most importantly, size and earnings levels of population bases (desired is 1 million people +). We have extensive due diligence and feasibility procedures we go through.

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on October 17
We have also been getting a good number of questions asking how many sites we have open, and where we are looking at going. Our parent company has one location open now in Tulsa, OK that is in our Zone 3. In Zone 1 that is offering shares now, we hope to develop and operate in several cities in the Midwest US, as these are our chosen ares for initial development due to land costs and development timeframes. However, we very much plan to develop and operate in other states across the country.

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on October 21
A recent question asked via email, and since it was a very good question, we want to address in the comments here as well. The question had to do with what possible returns there are besides just a dividend. Dividend payments are not necessarily a sole means of measuring return. One's decision should be based on 1) the dividend payment of 8% per annum, and B) the growth potential that comes from the implementation and success of the business plan (which we are not allowed to project specifically). This is preferred stock, which means that if the company or any of its assets are ever sold, the first funds to be paid out are to the Reg A shareholders prior to anyone else. We in management receive nothing unless and until all your investment principal is repaid. It is indeed success dependent, but given a successful implementation of the business plan, all of principal Reg A investment amounts are paid back prior to any other owned being paid.

Timothy Manos on October 29
When will I receive my subscription documents for ID # 832379196? Thanks

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on November 01
Hi Timothy, it was sent off on 10/21 when you put in your investment. Chances are it might have gone to spam. We just sent you a new one a few minutes ago so check your email. Thanks!

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on October 30
There have been some good questions posted on our social media pages. Posting them with the answers here so everyone has access to the info. One person asked if dividends can be automatically reinvested, and unfortunately they cannot. Another person asked if there would be requirements to pay more after an initial investment, and the answer is no. You can make the investment and that will be the totality of your financial contribution if you wish, and you are welcome to invest more if you would like while the offering is open. A few others asked if the ROI is 12.5 years due do 8% dividend. That is correct simply factoring in the interest over time, but in addition to this one would also have shares in company stock as well. The value of that has upside potential to greatly multiply but also has downside risk. Anyone investing should read the offering circular to get a good understanding of this opportunity and to reach out to us with any questions!

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on November 06
We recently got an email with two great questions. Here they are with the answers. 1) The first was a concern on the investment only being 8% over time, and in our opinion, the size of the investment is of little consequence. What should matter is “how does my investment perform for me?” This opportunity has a direct return of 8% yearly, paid 1/12th in cash each month. A $600 investment pays $48 per year and that comes to $4 per month. The rate of return is 8%, materially higher than a bank interest rate and mostly tax free. But, on top of that there is the possibility of growth, given that our company develops and operates multiple facilities. 2) If share prices rise and I want to sell, there is no option at this time, is that correct? Our company is not involved in share resale. But we do know there are secondary markets in which you may be able to sell shares later on. I can’t advise on resale of shares, but there companies to which you can get referred that can help you on this.

Allan on November 11
Hello! I am a new investor in Golf Suites 1. I would like to know if I may invest subsequent stock funds after my inital investment? I was unable to find information pertaining to it. Thanks!

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on November 15
Hi Allan, yes you can! Feel free to sign up for any additional shares on this offering page.

Dedrick on November 24
How many shares are being offered

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on November 26
We have been qualified to raise a total of $50M on this platform, and the current price is $5.10 per share. The total count is around 10M but a little less due to the price increases in shares.

Clayton Beasley on November 24
Do you have any thought of expanding into the South East ? If so, how far into the future ?

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on November 26
Absolutely we are. We are awaiting an answer from the SEC on our qualification on that zone.

HP on December 03
Reg D investment vs. Reg A+ investment. What are the main differences? Can an individual invest in both? Do both investments receive the 8% annual dividend? You stated below: Reg A is a preferred stock, which means that if the company or any of its assets are ever sold, the first funds to be paid out are to the Reg A shareholders prior to anyone else. We in management receive nothing unless and until all your investment principal is repaid. It is indeed success dependent, but given a successful implementation of the business plan, all of principal Reg A investment amounts are paid back prior to any other owned being paid. Does that mean that the Reg D investment is more risky? Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on December 04
The basic investment terms are very similar for the parent company Reg D and the GolfSuites 1 Inc Reg A+. Investors that are wealthy enough to be Accredited are allowed to invest in either or both offerings. Non Accredited investors are allowed to invest in the Reg A+ but not in the Reg D. Both investments earn an 8% dividend that is paid monthly. An investment in KGEM, the parent company, has broader geographic scope than an investment in GolfSuites 1 Inc. For regulatory reasons we are not allowed to make statements about which is more or less risky. Thank you for your questions and I hope this is helpful!

HP on December 04
Thank you for your prompt reply. No exceptions can be made if I want to invest $XXXXX in the parent company, but don't quite meet the requirements for an 'accredited investor'? There's a huge discrepancy in PPS in Reg D vs Reg A+ and as an investor the investment in KGEM seems more attractive. If GolfSuites 1 is an success, KGEM will also be succesfull, but KGEM can still be successful w/o GolfSuites 1 being profitable if GolfSuites 2 or 3 or 6 are yielding large profits in the future. Hope to hear from you soon!

JERRY ELLENBURG - CHAIRMAN / CEO on December 04
Hi HP. Unfortunately it is not possible for us to make an exception and allow any unaccredited investors to invest in the Reg D for the parent company, KGEM. The SEC regulations simply do not allow exceptions in a Reg D 506C offering, which is the form of the offering here.

When will I have a dashboard to be able to visually see and manage my account?
