SMPS Golf Outing and Clinic a.k.a. You Ain't Gotta Thing...If You Ain't Gotta Swing - The Business of Golf



It’s no secret that a lot of business is conducted on the golf course.  Golfing is one of the most effective networking and opportunity development tools used in business today and if you don’t golf, you are missing out! 

Join us for SMPS Philadelphia’s 2018 Golf Clinic and Outing that we’re calling - YOU AIN’T GOTTA THING…IF YOU AIN’T GOTTA SWING – The Business of Golf.  

This exciting event features a golf clinic and 9-hole tournament and is open to golfers of all levels. 

The clinic provides hands-on lessons from Bala Golf Club’s General Manager and his team of golfing professionals, driving range practice, and a nine-hole tournament with several prizes being awarded for lowest group score, closest to the pin, longest drive and more. 

Bala's golf professionals will help SMPS attendees build skill and confidence on the golf course and offer physical and mental tips on how to improve your game…or start one…and they will accompany the foursomes during the tournament!  

There’s no reason why all of your colleagues should be spending the day on the greens while you toil away at the desk.  Change the direction of your ‘course’…and register for a golf outing designed for marketing and business development professionals. 

Special Notes: 


No clubs?  Don’t worry…let us know and we will track down a set for your use.   


Wondering what the proper attire is to play golf has been pondered through the ages.

Private golf clubs like Bala have certain rules by which members and visitors must abide, so shirts with collars are always best...along with Docker-type pants or appropriate-length shorts...and yes, you can wear sneakers.  


Space is limited to 36 players due to the foursome structure of golf…and the nine holes to be played - a team of four will start at each of the nine holes being played.    


Included in the registration fee and following the clinic and nine-hole tournament will be 90 minutes of networking in Bala's renovated Grill Room with appetizers and an open bar (beer and wine).  Located just off of the Grill Room is Bala's spacious patio overlooking the club's 18th green. Enjoy a drink and some shade as you watch your fellow golfers conclude their rounds.
