Go for the Greens Golfing Tips

Golf is an especially vital component of the Go for the Greens mission and Annual Conference. Between now and September, we will be providing golf tips for the novice golfers. We hope you enjoy the tips and sign up to join us at Disney’s Palm and Oak Trail golf courses on September 24, 2022.

Why Play Golf?

  •  Golf teaches life lessons including honesty, self-confidence, endurance, resiliency, and accepting success as well as failure.
  • Golf is a wonderful opportunity to network professionally, but also can be a fun activity with friends.
  • Golf is a good workout for your body and mind. It includes a little meditation, yoga (that swing), walking (even with a cart) and burns calories!
  • Golf can help along your career. You have an opportunity to bond with new clients, spend one-on-one time with upper management and relax over drinks at Hole 19.
  • If you are into fashion trends, this game has a whole fashion wardrobe of its own. (More about the do’s and don’ts of what to wear in an upcoming newsletter.)
Did you know…the fastest growing group of golfers is women, now six million out of 27 million golfers in the United States.
