There are few sports as rich in history and ancestry as golfing. It is an integral part of so many people’s lives – and for good reason: golf is a unifier. When it comes down to business networking, there is no game like it to get a bunch of people working together (as well as against each other, of course), especially if takes place somewhere different to the usual corporate towers.
So, if you’re thinking of strengthening your contacts in a new way, this guide to the best golf travel destinations for business networking will help you with just that.
You can’t start a golfing destination list without going straight to Scotland, the home of golf. Immediately you are taken to the home of the sport and there is an entirely different feel when golfing in Scotland compared to anywhere else in the.
Although St Andrew’s Old Course is a hit for golfing in Scotland, the Royal Dornoch, established in 1616, is perfect for business networking and sporting.
It provides a unique golfing and travel experience seeing as it is situated in the stunning Scottish Highlands and is thus every true golfer’s dream. In terms of that all-important business networking, the Royal Dornoch is great for that and allows you to tailor your events to your own preferences.
Italy is not a country you would usually associate with golf, though it has almost 300 golf courses in total. The European charm of Italy is irresistible and while business networking, you can’t really ask for anything more. The charisma of the country itself extends right onto its golf courses, including the Olgiata Golf Club in the capital of Rome and the Castelfafi Golf Club in Tuscany.
Castelfafi is just as elegant as Tuscany itself and with 27 holes, it is a golf course fit for sporting enthusiasts who are networking on the side. Business networking in Italy is not something you do every day, so if you’re after a completely new experience, travelling there is the one for you.
It’ll be slow and relaxed, just like the slow food lifestyle in the country, and something to remember and thoroughly enjoy.
The Castelfafi Golf Club is also perfect for networking and, built on principles of sustainability, alters the mood of those you’re schmoozing with by putting them in a totally different mindset. Pack your sun lotion, you’re going to Italy!
