Golf: The Global Language of Business

Last Updated Nov 1, 2010 6:41 PM EDT

East is East and West is West, but golf is something every business person who plays the game understands. The beauty of an early morning tee time, the escape from the grind—these transcend language differences, cultural barriers, and even business cycles. Forget video conferencing: The course is still where deals get done. But you have to know what you're doing. Which is why we've compiled the second annual BNET business leader's guide to golf. We'll add videos and articles over the course of the summer.


Learn what NOT to do on the course, from golfing CEOs who've seen it all. Discover the best places to take clients in the world's second-fastest growing golfing nation, India. Then read India's Golf Boom, where you'll discover not only what impact the Tiger Woods of India, Jeev Milkha Singh, has had on his homeland, but also what to expect (cell phone chatter on the greens, for one) if you're lucky enough to land an outing there.
