Has Golf Helped Your Career?

One of my favorite golf quotes comes from sportswriter Grantland Rice, who said, “Eighteen holes of match or medal play will teach you more about your foe than will 18 years of dealing with him across a desk.” And golf still enjoys a reputation as being a great place to take care of business. In fact, I just recently came across this question on one of my favorite golf blogs, GolfRewind.com: Has golf helped your career?

I think that we have all heard the cliche “business is conducted on the golf course.” My question is, have you ever experienced this? Have you ever received a promotion? Landed a contract? Or impressed your superiors with your golf game. Does that cliche ring true? Or is it something that exists only in print?

Do you have any personal experience with business golf? Good or bad, why not share your story with the rest of the Rock Heads by leaving a comment down below!


PS: Golf etiquette is a big deal to most players, but can basically be boiled down to these three bullet points:

  1. Keep It Safe
  2. Maintain Pace
  3. Be Kind To The Course

Business golf etiquette adds a whole new set of wrinkles to the situation, however. Brush up on your business golf rules by checking out the ten easy tips in this video:
