In every business networking function I go to and there is at least one person who tells me..
OH, I have always wanted to play golf.
Naturally, my response is..
What is keeping you from learning to play golf?
From here, the conversation goes to one of the two major problems with golf
Time and Money
Recently the Money issue has trumped the Time issue, but overall, most people would find the funds to start golf if they could find the time.
Following are all of the remarks that relate to the time to learn golf issue.
- Too Busy at Work
- Kids Take Up All Extra Time
- Travel Schedule Out of Control
There is no dispute the recession has got a large number of business golfers and wannabe business golfers at bay. Finding time to do anything outside of the commute back-forth and domestic duties is really hard to do. What many business people do not realize is golf could be part of the way they do business.
Following are the remarks that relate to the cost of golf.
- Afraid of Investing in Golf
- Initial Start Up Cost
- Cost to Play Only Private
The cost can be high for golf for the misinformed newbie to golf. The initial start up costs and investment made into golf is questionable if learning golf is not sincere. The cost of playing at a private club where learning is easier and tolerated can be a bit higher, but the rewards for business golf are much higher in the private club environment. The funding of golf is somewhat cushioned when the reason for learning to play golf is to help by having a business reason.
More people would play golf if they knew golf is the best way to meet other business people and to get to know the true person who is running the business or is purchasing a product.
What are some of the reasons that is keeping you from learning to play golf?
