Corporate Pro-Am Golf Tournaments
For the shakers and movers in your industry, the chief executives and their fellow directors who have the power to influence and make important decisions there is no better way of getting them out of their ivory towers than the prospect of rubbing shoulders with a PGA golf professional.
Someone whom they will respect and who has achieved success in their field of operation, where your prospect or client may be reluctant to give up valuable time for a business lunch the opportunity of playing a round of golf with a PGA professional is much more appealing, especially if they are golfers.
