The golf course used to the place to do business.

I've never played golf. Is it worth learning?

I always thought golf was stupid, hit a ball and chase after it. I was even a Caddy for 2 years.

Then a friend invited me to play with him. I see it is one of the most positive sports to get out all your frustrations.

It is very expensive now to play a round of golf, even if you buy a low prices set of clubs. Smile

But does business still happen on the course? Do deals get made?

It depends on who you are doing deals worth. If you are missing work by not golfing you have your answer.

Personallyit has worked for me yes.

It all depends who you play with and why. Yes you can make business deals. Definitely.

I play with friends from grammar school and high school. And I am 69 years old.
So for me, it is for the fun, company and exercise. And perhaps a few drinks afterwards.
I don't play for business reasons.

Many of my friends swear by it.
But on the other hand you can also network playing tennis, poker, softball, etc.
It doesn't have to be golf. It all depends on who you are playing with.

I think it depends on how you're looking at it and referring to it. Does it still happen, I'm pretty sure it does to some degree and based on location and business climate. Out west in Arizona and down south in Florida and South Carolina it may be much more prominent that other places. However in reference to how it used to be, much like the "Martini lunch", I think it is probably less popular than it once was.

Gone are the days when guys had unlimited or large expense accounts to conduct business in such scenarios, with cutbacks, outsourcing and more controlled sales operations limit or perhaps prevent it from happening the way it used to. I would think today you'd have better success at a Starbucks rather than a bar and the golf course.
