Golf 102: Playing by the Rules to Defy Business Odds on the Green

Your stroke is just as important as the golf course you’re putting on. And for many novice and more seasoned players who want to get a hole in one, ambiance is everything. Golf is what draws golfers to the crème de la crème in courses stateside and abroad, but when they want to organize a family staycation, a getaway for two or fun business outing, it’s something a little more like the spa services or exclusive perks for being a luxury car driver that seal the deal. BlackEnterprise.com spoke to the founder and president of Golf Quests, Inc. Ty DeLavallade about today’s top golf resorts. See if your favorite made the list!

The countdown continues to the Black Enterprise Golf and Tennis Challenge which goes down the weekend of August 28-31 in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

It’s a weekend full of networking events, sporting competitions, lots of partying, and lots of golf.

Understanding that not all power plays occur in the boardroom, the Golf and Tennis Challenge provides a venue and platform for networking and deal-making in a relaxed atmosphere.

So, as we countdown the days, it may be a good idea to polish up on your golfing skills and etiquette— they just might be the tools that land you that mammoth contract or deal that could change your life.

We asked Rodney Green, director of golf at the Innisbrook Resort and Tiffany Fitzgerald who founded Atlanta-based Black Girls Golf to give tips on teeing up and the right ways to grow the game for those seriously thinking about cashing in on the business opportunities playing golf could open up for potential entrepreneurs.


But when it comes to playing golf, there are too few women of color involved in the sport and they too are missing out on the enormous opportunities for deal clinching on the course.
