I play a lot of golf around the country. I say a lot. There are others who play a more rounds of golf a year than me, but on average the number of rounds of golf I play a year is far above the average of what most people play.
Most people who come to me to talk about business golf, or to be mentored in business golf, only play 12 to 14 rounds of recreational golf a year. Naturally, the number of rounds they play doubles the first year after I get them started in using golf as a business tool. Still, even with the increase of play, golf to them is very special.
It is good to be excited with playing golf and keeping the play special. What keeps golf special sometimes is different for each golfer. What keeps golf special for a vet like me has to do with the quality of golf. What keeps golf special for someone else could be something as specific as the cups of ice the club attendants give, to something as general as just being able to find the time to play.
Whatever makes the round of golf you play with a guest special should be the goal. A pleasant experience always leads to a pleasant outcome.
Generally, what keeps business golf special has to do with where the golf is played. So, if you are not sure what makes your guest’s golf special, pick a golf club that holds a very high standard to the overall quality experience. Odds are that golf club will make the round of golf special for both you and your guest. The results of the business golf are then left to you.
