If you take a look around the golf course while you are playing you are more than likely going to see a large number of different combinations of people playing golf. There will be the men and women who play golf together..there will be the adults playing with their kids…there will be the twosome of men or women..the foursomes of mixed ages and genders..and yes..from time to time there will be the begrudging 5-somes or even more, all playing on the golf course.
Business Golf Growing
One of the growing groups of golfers, for which I am very excited to report, is the Business Golfers. Business Golf has been around well before I started coaching on how to effectively using golf as a business tool. It is suspected that the very first round of golf, played over 450 years ago, was a round of Business Golf.
Though the way Business Golf is played has changed since then, the bottom-line still is..Golf is the best Business Relation Builder there is…and believe me, I have search for a better one and there are none.
Where Did Business Golf Start?
A round of Business Golf can develop into a test of a person’s character. If someone cheats on the golf course, you can place a pretty solid bet they are going to cheat in the workplace. It is because of this testing as why some people will not play golf…they have too much to hide and a person’s true character usually is reveled on the golf course in High Definition.
8 out of every 10 golfers playing golf are decision makers in business. This does not mean they are all out playing golf today or they play Business Golf, but they do play golf. This makes for the possibility of running into a golfer in the business world a great likelihood.
Brotherhood of Business Golfers
Business Golfers are like all other golfers..they love the game and they make up a huge portion of the global golfing fraternities and sororities. It is easy to be part of this..learn to play golf.
Being a non-golfer today becomes a huge disadvantage when the business people in the market you are working it all play golf. This is why it is important to learn to play golf..and if you do play golf it is important to learn to play Business Golf.
With the economy improving on a broad scale, it will not be long before more of the people who put the golf clubs up to focus on business survival will be back out on the golf course. They will be looking for someone to play golf with..will you be ready?
