Last evening the room was filled with 15 very excited business golfers with Hundreds more watching, via live video stream, the launch of the Business Golf Country Club ’s first Chapter Club in Dallas, TX. The attendees ranged from top business execs to startups: attorneys to accountants; golf professionals to beginner golfers..the virtual attendance probably more of the same.
The atmosphere was Very electrifying, social media wise, with the WOW factor and OMG meter on Twitter and Facebook registering off the chart.
It is very gratifying to know that so many golfers I have become friends with over the past five years came in to not just listen, but to JOIN my efforts to help Golf Survive through developing a greater purpose to play golf. Truly, Dave and my efforts to..Put Business Back on Course..took a positive leap forward with the support of the golfers who attended.
Of course there were the pesky technical difficulties with the video feed..sorry for that..but I was very excited to hear that one of the attendees stream the entire 25 minute lecture I gave to the internet via his iPhone. Plus the entire presentation was captured on tape so a Special Thanks to Mark Nease of Key Image Media Solutions. If you missed the launch we will get the editing done and place the lecture right here for you to watch .
The message I received from those who attended was very clear. “We love golf and want to help”. The message I presented was even clearer…
For Golf to survive golfers need to develop a greater PURPOSE to playing golf that is above it being just a recreational activity.
Golf + Business/Social Networking = Business Golf
Yes, business golf combined with an operational style of social media is what the Business Golf Country Club is all about. With the launch of the BGCC’s Dallas Chapter the scales are now balanced for the members to take advantage of bringing the business/social networking done in the online club to the golf course..or in this case..the Country Clubs.
