That's Why Golf Is Such A Useful Skill For Any Businesswoman To Acquire.
Any women who is serious about getting ahead in business needs to look at incorporating the game of golf into her strategy for success. Some of the most successful male CEO’s in the country have. Business mega stars such as Jack Welch, Donald Trump, and Charles Schwab have all used business golf to further their business relationships.
Even dot-comers Bill Gates and Scott McNeely of Sun MicroSystems have added golf to their success strategies. If these nabobs of the old and new economies are utilizing golf in their business strategies, why shouldn’t women? Women can use golf for business to get ahead in the companies they work for and network with others outside their work place to get more business.

Golf and commerce have been synonymous ever since the Scots invented the game in the mid-fifteenth century. And when it comes to business and golf for women today, there’s probably no better pairing than MassMutual Financial Group, including OppenheimerFunds, Inc. (OppenheimerFunds) and the Executive Women’s Golf Association (EWGA).
As a national sponsor of the EWGA, MassMutual Financial Group and OppenheimerFunds are not only promoting women and golf, but also the benefits of women’s participation in sports. These benefits often lead to professional success and last a lifetime.
Taking Up Golf May Seem Like A Daunting Prospect For Women, Not Least Because Of It's Mystique As A Male Preserve. But Getting Started Is Less Difficult Than You Might Think. And It's A Lot Of Fun, Too
Golf is huge. It pervades American culture: There are golf shirts, golf jokes, a golf channel. There’s even a Chicken Soup for the Golfer’s Soul.
But to the uninitiated, particularly women, the game is surrounded with mystery. For many years, private country clubs have striven to project an image of exclusivity, encouraging the idea that golf is reserved for the privileged male, and a privileged white male at that. While most courses don’t get the press Augusta National (the course where the Masters is played) does, there are other private clubs where women are not allowed to cross the threshold or that restrict access to women, limiting their hours of play. Many women view golf as a male bonding activity. Some deeply resent the fact that while they are toiling away at their computer terminals, their male (and sometimes a few female) colleagues have slipped out to the course so they can practice for a charity golf event their organization is sponsoring.
