Golf has been associated with business for as long as I can remember. There is a reason why the PGA tour secures large corporate sponsors every week for their tournaments. It's a great way to get your brand out and be associated with a sport that represents integrity, character, and etiquette. Golf is a game of controlling yourself and composure under certain obsoletes that come your way on the golf course.
When you play golf with a group of 3 others you get a chance to really learn more about them and it's more of a social experience. The physical act of playing golf is really only about 45 minutes, the majority of the time you are are talking with your playing partners and enjoying the landscape of the course. Various discussions come up all the time which may include what line of work or business you're in and what recent developments or challenges you're experiencing.
You never know what opportunities may come up on the golf course, but one cliche holds true:
" A bad day on the golf course beats a day in the office any day of the week".
Have a great season !
