I am sure we all cover a lot of real estate, when we play golf. However, I am interested in the benefits people have found with utilizing golf as a way to bring in team members and partners. Any experiences, words of wisdom, or interest to play golf in the Mountain View area.
The largest benefit is that it's a game that forces you to be with someone for a few hours where you also get a chance to keep the blood flowing (walking, swinging, etc) which keeps you calm. I don't personally play a lot, but others on my team love it for recruiting and networking because it's not as formal as even sitting for coffee.
I have started to golf a lot lately. I think it is a great way to network with people. There is not many other times/opportunities you get someone for 4 hours in an environment where they feel comfortable and both people are most likely in a calm mood, which is the best time to have business conversation.
@Domenick Cava I think golf in an invaluable tool to make strong connections with people. It affords for people in your network to let their guard down and you can make strong connections this way.
