Golf has always been a gentleman’s sport, a real old boys networking activity. Of course, it no longer being a boys only sport, the evolution of the sport has taken it into modern times. Not really a solitary sports, golf is the perfect pastime for being active and making connections.
How to network the gentleman way
Golf has the rules of the game and the rules of the play. What this means that there are etiquette rules that are incorporated in how the game is played. It is a game where being considerate, friendly and courteous are very important. These attributes are also important in business. People do business with people who are good at their job but also with people they like and appreciate.
Talk shop between putts
The amount of metres between holes, allows you time to converse with your golf partner. For this reason golf is famously used for making and closing deals. Historically golf and business should be separated. However, with fast times comes fast business. This means that people don’t allow themselves being away from the office for 4-6 hours (which is the time you need to play a full course). Don’t feel ashamed to talk shop between putts, as long as your being a gentleman or lady about it.
