Invited to a corporate golf outing but not a golfer? Don’t panic, learn how to putt, along with a couple of other things, and you’ll be fine.


If you don’t golf, the corporate golf outing, where business is done and careers are sometimes decided, is terrifying.  How do you survive it?  How to you become a team player?  How do you make it to the 19th hole with your confidence and pride intact?


“The real first step is not to panic,” says Kyle Kunash, golf pro at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Wisconsin. “Everyone was a first-time golfer at some point and there are plenty of ways to familiarize yourself with the sport and its terminology beforehand. And the fact is, most golfers are not really that good, less than ten per cent of all golfers in America ever break a score of 100. And even more important, is that a six-foot putt (which anyone can do if they practice at home a bit) is just as important as that 300-yard drive. The moment of glory is on the green (where the golf hole and flag is) not on the tee.”

In a corporate outing, nearly all tournaments are scrambles. This is not an egg dish before the game. It simply means everyone hits and then the team picks the best shot and all players play the next shot from there, the team will repeat this process until they finish the hole. This format is great because it takes the pressure off the novice/first time golfers. More times than not, someone will hit a good enough shot to get to the next shot.

Gotta Get It

Keep the chill off

Since many tournaments start early in the morning, why not keep the chill off with an Arc’Teryx vest? Warm and durable, these vests easily slip over a golf shirt for an extra layer until the sun warms up the day.
