My Golf Etiquette & Pace of Play Seminar is based on the fundamental idea that there’s a difference between being able to play golf well and being a good golfer.

If you’ve been golfing for any length of time, you almost certainly already know what I mean—we’ve all met someone that’s without a doubt a very skillful golfer indeed, but at the same time we immediately know that we wouldn’t enjoy spending another day on the links with them.

Perhaps their pacing was rushed or too slow, they didn’t have a great handle on the rules of the game, or they simply had a bad attitude when they performed poorly (or perhaps worse, gloated when they performed well). Point is, nobody in your group wanted to golf with them again.

How can you avoid becoming one of these skilled-yet-”bad” golfers?

At its core, my Golf Etiquette & Pace of Play Seminar will teach you how to not be “that” guy or gal. Instead, you’ll learn all the key tenets of being a truly good golfer—that is, someone who is a pleasure to play with anytime, regardless of your skill level or the skill level of your playing companions.

We Call it “Playing Golf”, Not “Working Golf”!

Have you ever noticed when you’re around a person with a positive and relaxed attitude that you find yourself more at ease?

Conversely, a tense, frustrated, or uncomfortable person will make most people instinctively put up their guard.

These unspoken rules are always in play while golfing! Attitudes are infectious during your time on the green—there’s even quite a lot of science to back this up, with mirror neurons and all that—so if you want your companions to have a great time golfing, you need to be having a great time yourself.

The quickest way to enjoy golfing (and to have others enjoy golfing with you) holds at its heart a very Zen-like proposal: play quickly without rushing, don’t take things too seriously while still respecting the game and your fellow players, and laugh at yourself but never in a mean-spirited or self deprecating way.

After all, you’re playing golf, not working golf. Remembering this will help you to play “the game within the game” of golf, which is…

The Game Within the Game: Golf Etiquette, Proper Pacing, and The Impact on Your Networking Opportunities

As you doubtlessly already know, golfing can provide excellent networking opportunities. Businesses and organizations often have their people attend my Golf Etiquette & Pacing Seminar for this very reason—anyone who takes the seminar will be far better equipped to represent their company well.

If you’ve ever wanted to entertain customers, clients, or your companions with class, you’ll learn how to do it in this seminar. In addition to comfort-building techniques and my methods for playing quickly without appearing rushed, hasty, or frustrated, you’ll learn some of the more mechanical but key components that will make you a pleasure to play with:

  • Where to stand while others are playing
  • Where to park your golf cart or put your golfing bag
  • When to talk and, crucially, when not to talk
  • How to properly tee up a ball (I often see even seasoned players getting this wrong!)
  • How to show respect to the course you’re playing on and your fellow golfers by quickly and easily repairing divots and pitch marks
  • Safety considerations for yourself and your companions

…And more—lots more. We’ll even cover some of the basic rules of golf and what part proper etiquette plays with them.

By the time you’re done with the seminar, you’ll be hitting the links not only with the air of class and grace that all truly good golfers seem to have, but a renewed enjoyment for the game itself.

I’m so confident in my methods and advice that I want to make absolutely sure you get it right: that’s why I’ll even meet up with you as an added bonus over at the Green Valley Ranch Club for only ten bucks (the greens admission fee). We’ll go over everything together and put everything you learned in the seminar into real-world practice.
