Business and golf have always gone well together but playing a round with a client or your boss is different than 18 holes with your drinking buddies. In this week’s podcast, host Dave Berner talks to Suzanne Woo of BizGolf Dynamics about business-golf etiquette.
“The biggest distinction I make is that a business golf round is not the same as a weekend round with your buddies, and a lot of folks make that mistake,” she says. “The big difference: you lose the competitiveness, you lose some of the inappropriate jokes, you watch the alcohol consumption more. But most importantly, it’s about making sure your guest is getting to know you [and] having a good time.”
When people think Florida golf, Jacksonville, Miami, even Orlando, are the first places to come to mind. But Florida also has some lesser known golf ‘warm spots,’ such as Tallahassee and Gainesville, according to National Golf Editor Tim McDonald.
“Tallahassee has got some good elevation changes to it,” McDonald says. “It’s not like Carolina golf, where you have these drastic elevation changes. But you do have some, and it’s kind of fun.”
Technology has been changing golf for years but the game just might be going retro, says Bruce Stasch of the Golf Gear News podcast in this week’s ‘TravelGolf.com’ On Course commentary.
“Modern golf equipment has experienced a constant technological march forward,” Stasch says. “Golfers are constantly searching for the Holy Grail of equipment. And at the same time, there seems to be a movement away from scoring low with the latest equipment, to the more ethereal 1920s. Players are donning knickers, finding hickory shafted collectibles.”
