Golf for Cause® - Helping You to Turn Golf into Gold®!

Golf is a powerful connector- especially in business. Whether you play the game or not, you can use golf to achieve your goals.
 
A golf-loving client or prospect has a favorite salesperson- one who shares his/her interest in the game. The perception that client-golf consists of playing 18 holes of golf is just that - a perception. Sometimes it is the traditional 18-holes of golf. And other times it's a group clinic, attending a tournament, dining at the golf course, or even gifting a subscription to a golf magazine.
 
As more women take on leadership roles in the corporate world, it's no surprise that more women are hitting the links. Men and women playing golf together for business introduces added protocols to a game already laden with etiquette and rules. The game continues to evolve and open new doors.
 
Golf for Cause supports this evolution and growth of the game through creative programs, workshops, and services.
 
A Message for Women:
It's a known fact that women, as a group, don't participate in the game of golf to the extent that men do. For the most part, they see the game of golf as a "mystery" to which only men hold the key. Yet, the message businesswomen hear today is that golf is a widely accepted playing field for conducting business and they are missing out on opportunities by not participating.
 
"Are you missing a critical business skill?"
 
The golf community has created "women-only" golf clinics targeting the female executive. Statistically, women are the largest new group coming to the game of golf today. Yet, often frustrated with their skill-set, they are also the largest group that leaves the game and does not return.
 
What's missing in the "critical business skill" message is the business dimension. Golf for Cause teaches women (and men) how to use golf as business tool (to create opportunities, to forward relationships) because it's more than just about going out and hitting golf balls. Golf for Cause provides the keys and the tools to demystify the game.

What’s in Your Golf Bag Pockets?

New golfers often feel overwhelmed when they begin to realize how seemingly much there is to learn – how to hold or grip the golf clubs, how to swing them, how far apart your feet should be, which club should you use for a given shot, and oh, by the way, what are all the zippered pockets on my golf bag for? 

Some of the pockets are intended to hold the important things that help you step confidently onto the golf course and look fabulous doing it. You might not be a terrific golfer (yet), but you want to look like one!

Pack your pockets right and you’ll be ready for anything. Say you set out from home on a beautiful summer day. The sun is high in the sky and its rays wrap you in warmth. But you know it won’t last, as the weather forecast calls for change later in the day. You have no worries, though, because in one of your golf bag’s larger, zippered pockets you packed a beautiful piece of outerwear.

Frankly I’m a fan of fun outerwear and Antigua offers a variety to fit all occasions. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • The Delta ¼ zip long-sleeve pullover with pockets. It has a self-collar and the accents along the sides are very slimming! Mine proved to be quite handy during the Golfweek Rater Challenge in Arizona. It snowed in Scottsdale!
  • The Adventure is a lightweight windbreaker. There’s definitely room in your golf bag for this piece and room for you to feel comfortable swinging a club while wearing the jacket. With a full zipper and the contrasting accents you’ll even look sharp! There’s a bungie toggle to gather the bottom of the jacket so that it fits you to a tee.
  • I can’t seem to keep the Serenity pullover in my golf bag. While playing golf with my daughter, I noticed her looking through the pockets in my golf bag. She found the Serenity, tried it on and then wouldn’t give it back! The raglan shoulders, ½ zip and spandex make it very easy to pull on and off, and it’s VERY comfortable.  With the geometric jacquard pattern and stylish seaming on the back, you’ll look great – and slender! I personally like the blue – one of those universal colors that everyone can wear.
  • The Divine Vest is not only classy, it’s reversible and waterproof! As a vest, you can swing freely and it has several pockets to hold everything you want with you on the course. With slendering lines, not surprisingly, my daughter “borrowed” the vest from my golf bag. I’m not holding my breath as I wait for her to return it!

Whichever style you choose, pullover, vest, full-zip windbreaker, you’ll have a stylish, functional piece of outerwear in your golf bag pockets and you’ll always be prepared – for weather and to look fabulous!
