Business Golf - Articles Surfing


* Prospective customers * Clients * Referrals * Recruiting key employees * Developing businesses partners, vendors, suppliers and the like

Business encourages golf as a natural side for networking and to develop relationships. Corporate America spends billions of dollars and thousands of hours on business golf as it's no.1 pastime today. I've heard about many big business deals done at the golfing range and I don't see that changing anytime soon. It's a sport that's enjoyed all over the world and it's definitely not a cheap sport to get into. You got your clubs and your entry fee which could cost you the amount of a new car depending on where you play. It's not a sport for the poor and that is probably the appeal for business men or women because one must be serious about the game if they want to get anywhere.

Be on your best behavior when playing with a client. Business golf can be a very lucrative initiative for companies today, but it can also wreck a big deal if not handled properly. Your attitude on the golf course and your reaction to how you are playing may cause a client to lose respect for you, and that may keep you from closing a deal. Don*t force the business discussion. You don*t want to start talking shop before you tee off the first hole. Take some time to get to know your client, enjoy being on the golf course and discuss topics aside from business. There is a general rule that it is safe to talk about business between the fifth and 15th holes.

The most important thing to realize is that people will remember how enjoyable it was to play golf with you; no one will remember what score you shot.

I was an engineer in silicon valley for 6 years before getting laid off just recently. After getting a nice severance package, I decided to take the time and money and travel the world. After that experience of a lifetime, I have come back to the business world, but no longer working to build someone else's business, but my own by forming my own corporation.
