Certifications are one of the most effective ways to connect with your peers and let them know that you have reached a new level of achievement. Certifications give your peers a little nudge to ask questions or include you in some of their conversations and activities, such as golf.
Unfortunately, women are rarely a consideration when it comes to planning golf outings with peers in the workplace. Furthermore, with the complex rules and regulations that come with the game of golf leaves many women uncertain about where to start.
This why we created the Business Golf Certification and Pre-Certification.
Becoming Business Golf certified shows that you have an understanding of how work professionals play golf. From building and implementing a strategy to growing your professional network, the it proves to your colleagues and your customers that you’re able to join them for a round of golf AND lunch.
The Business Golf certification is more of an experience than a daunting "class". Just be sure to commit to learning the material and be willing to invest in yourself now and forever.
What is the Business Golf Certification?
The Business Golf Certification is an accreditation training and exam program offered by Golf Women Mean Business.
The certification gives individuals looking to enter the golf game an easy gateway and open doors to be invited to play in social or business golf outings.
There are two options available:
Business Golf Pre-Certification (100% self-paced & online)
Business Golf Certification (50% self-paced & 50% on the golf course)
The exams can be challenging if you don't commit to studying and preparing, but the experience can be life changing. The curriculum and overall detailed training are what makes the Business Golf Certification so impactful.
