GOLF and MEETINGS
Do you remember when spending a beautiful day playing a round of golf was one of the most productive business meeting tools you could use. I have fond memories of not only getting some pretty significant business accomplished on the golf course, but building relationships that remain strong to this day. These recollections made me think about how busy we all are, and how we seem to come up with every conceivable excuse for why we can’t put one or two days aside to MEET, away from the noise and stress of it all. AND WELL, a corporate golf event is a great way to do just that!
Listen, if you have never done it before, or if it’s been so long that you just can’t remember, plan a GOLF MEETING getaway now! There are plenty of perfect golf/resort destinations to go to like The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club where you not only have a myriad of meeting space options, but you get to play the newly renovated championship golf course redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in collaboration with noted course architect John Sanford. It is spectacular, relaxing, fun and perfect for a little or lot of business.
Corporate golf outings can be anything from sponsored tournaments, incentive-driven rewards, or combined with a company meeting that is taking place at a perfect AAA Four-Diamond property. Most resorts, like The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, offer a wide array of options including tournaments and competitions, as well as clinics and lessons for groups and individuals alike. Even add contests to your corporate meeting event schedule that can include closest to the hole, straightest drive, longest and best putt, and some fun on the practice putting green. The point is, so much can be accomplished when you first make the commitment to get away, and second when you consider golf as a key component of that getaway. You’d be surprised at the number of unique programs that can be individually catered to each group so that year after year they are surprised, wowed and excited about their experience.
Whether it is with employees or clients, three to four hours on a golf course can get a great way to get clients, business associates and employees somewhat alone and without digital distractions (hopefully). Can you think of a better way to engage and grow relationships – both personal and business; a perfect platform for everyone to get to know each other better?
Why not give us a call to plan a golf outing for you. We think you will be amazed at how unique a golf outing can be for teambuilding – where everyone is rooting for each other no matter how good at the game you are.
