OK, so you've survived months of belt tightening, juggled the workload of three people, and proved yourself an essential member of the team. Now comes the ultimate test: a long afternoon on the links with your boss. How you socialize with your manager outside of the office is nearly as important as you how contribute to his Monday morning meetings. And if golf is how the guy relaxes and he's invited you along, it's time to dust off those clubs in the garage.
In this feature package, we offer a survival manual for the game and for business participants like you. Learn how to make a great impression on the course (how you behave is much more important than how well you play) and maybe even enjoy yourself (which Nick Faldo says will probably improve your game). And if you're the one inviting your boss to play, don't miss our photo galleries of stand-out courses — a collection of must-play links and hidden gems in the U.S., U.K., and Australia. Whether your boss is the frugal type or a free spender, they'll prove you have an eye for quality and value.
