Why Golf?

In the business world, knowing the game of golf can open doors for young professionals. Imagine it is the second week of your first job, and your boss says,

“I have a tee-time this Saturday with our CEO and our top client. Can you join us?”

Don’t blow an opportunity to network with important people. Learn the game. It opens doors!
