Golf is truly ‘The Business Sport.’
No other game comes close to the importance of golf,
and the course and the clubhouse,
as places where rapport is built,
and important contacts and business deals are made.
This means that an essential of modern business skills is playing the game, and handling yourself well on the links.
As one female executive said: “When you get to a certain level of management, you are expected to play golf. If you can’t, you are at a huge disadvantage. Golf is the sport if you want to move forward.”
No question about it:
The ability to play golf enhances professional careers.
It’s a conversation-starter. A door-opener. A business game-changer.
At times it may even be a deal-maker or breaker.
However, business golf unfortunately still remains mostly an exclusive domain of men.
Fortunately - we’re part of changing that!
The old joke that ‘GOLF’ means ‘Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden’ is more than outdated. The PGA of America dropped its ‘Caucasian Only’ clause in 1961, and the game is now global in scope. Today’s golf industry leaders seeking to ‘Grow The Game’ are reaching out more strongly to women, the younger generation, and to diverse communities of players and fans.
As women and people of diverse backgrounds continue to establish their presence and leadership in business life, many are exploring the pleasures and networking power of The Business Sport.
