Golf events can be very exciting especially for those who are passionate about the game and to build better relationships between partners and businesses. The game of golf, besides being a competitive and highly exciting sport has also been a popular business networking phenomenon. It has been said that some of the biggest business deals have been made over a game of golf and this might just be true.
Golf builds relations
There are a lot of business-related opportunities in golf tournaments. For instance, the Australasian PGA tour and its affiliated events like the World Golf Championships and The Presidents Cup have been the platform where clients are entertained by large Australian firms. While world golfers are competing in the greens, business relations are being built as spectators of the tournaments. This is among the main reasons why so much are being spent on corporate sponsorships for top renowned golfers based on how well they are faring in the game. The higher the ranking a professional golfer goes, the more corporate sponsors are willing to spend. The leverage they get from such exposure can be limitless and that is why golf is such a big game.
Not just spectators but players too
It must be noted though that while corporations and businesses are fast getting associated to the game, many are now playing too. In fact, there are now almost 10% of Australian adults play the game. This constitutes to about 1.34 million people of the over-18 age group. This means that it becomes a lot more evident now that Australian adults are very much accustomed and associated with the game of golf.
Why golf? You might ask
Golf rules are very different from other sports. The handicap system provides the chance for players of all levels to enjoy the game. This means that one can be an amateur, a beginner or a seasoned golfer. As long as the handicap system is apparent, you know who is up against. People with different abilities can be easily identified by knowing the handicap. This is something that other sports cannot emulate. Furthermore, business executives and bosses would always like to get away from the office to have a round of golf.
