I started practicing at the driving range when I was pretty young. Never really thought about my short game. Played at courses here & there. When I worked corporate our company president had us play at his CC & I actually did OK.

Well, maybe there are some strategies that can be used in real estate but I just couldn't ever get into watching golf. There was only one time I took a lesson from a friend, and the sport just didn't interest me. I do play mini golf but just if someone else wants to; I don't particularly care for it.

If you are playing golf, you are meeting people. So yes, go ahead and play golf.  If you are watching on tv, not sure whether it improves your business.  I guess if it makes you happy, why not.

I think there are business lessons to be learned from the game of golf... probably more from playing than watching. Plus, I did a lot of business with my golfing contacts. I've actually written a blog or two about it.

Are their people involved?

Does the opportunity to talk to them occur?

Are these people qualified to make real estate decisions?

Do they know people qualified to make real estate decisions?

Is the agent sufficiently competent in swinging those sticks to not announce incompetency in other important areas. (Intentional situation comedy exempted).

Is there a better, more productive way to spend those 4 hours?

It sounds like golf could be right thing to do for ANY business.

Watching golf from the comfort of one sofa is a complete waste of time. But we all celebrated Tigers 'comeback' and felt good because of it. After all, we still have the image of Wilma's tantrum fresh in our mind.

I have not golfed for 7 years Peter Mohylsky and I was a scratch golfer. I lost my equipment in our flood and even though I purchased clubs shortly after wards I just totally lost interest. People always wanted to play me to beat me, not sure I ever remember anyone who had outside of my close personal friends. Those same people were usually sore losers so I just stuck with a few select friends.
