Golf Consulting Services for Your Business Goals
Women and Golf
My belief is this: women don’t need golf to further personal and professional relationships with women. In my experience, women are expert organizers and networkers and do just fine in this regard without needing golf in the equation. But the gift golf gives to women is that it enables them to engage with men in an environment that welcomes and encourages promoting business connections—an environment in which women are part of the conversation and share with their male counterparts everything from engaging and strategic discussions to the simple banter and camaraderie of friendship.
For example, I co-founded "Take Time For Nine" (TTFN), a weekly 9-hole outing with the intention of creating a fun, no-stress environment for women and men to play golf together and to advance potential business relationships. I wanted women to learn, as I had, that golf is an incredible business tool, and being able to play with men is a great door opener. Many business deals get done as a result of TTFN’s weekly outings, and lifelong friendships form easily and effortlessly. It is truly a comfortable environment.
I am excited that many new women are coming to this great game and adding it to their lifestyle choices. I want everyone to remember that golf is and should be an inclusive sport that women and men can enjoy together, Turning Golf into Gold®.
Golf for Cause®
Since launching Golf for Cause®, I have advocated that “golf can bring gold into your life” regardless of how well you play, and even if you don’t play. But, the gold I speak of is not just monetary. It is friendships, forwarding relationships, team building, client development, outreach, and, yes, even the $5 bet! It is quality time with people you care about. It’s a way to connect with nature. It is healthy. It’s a vehicle for going to places you never thought you’d go and to meet new people. Everyone defines the gold a bit differently—yet, the bottom line is—golf is an amazing connector and enriches your life.
