Meetings, Negotiations, Training, Facility Tours-all part and parcel of business trips. If certain days allow you to sneak in a round of golf, why not avail yourself of the opportunity.to chase the little white ball? A welcome break from the grind makes the business run smoother, after all. In part one, we've listed seven prime business destinations from the eastern half of the USA and included one friend from our neighbor to the north.
For each destination, our experts found the closest course to the concourse, to ensure that you hit the first tee as soon as your wheels touch down. They do a quick break-down of the course (the skinny), time from the tarmac (the distance), and the closest restaurant (the munch) for expediency's sake. And...Let's Go!
