Being successful in business isn’t always a straight process. More often than not, success requires “playing outside the box”. Much like in golf, it is important to think creatively and to be aware of your surroundings in order to reach your goal.
–Patrina King, Founder & CEO of Golf Women Mean Business.

GWMB teach business professionals the concepts of golf and how to use golf for business purposes. This concept is delivered by strengthening their business acumen through seminars, providing golf instruction through premier golf clinics and creating an environment for vetted networking.
Golf Women Mean Business sets the standard in the business-golf industry for women. By maintaining an active database of current Business Golfers and business professionals who wish to learn to play golf, Golf Women Mean Business is telling the world that women are serious about connecting with the right people for business or career purposes.
Many avid Business Golfers sometime miss opportunities to play golf with business women because an invitation to play a round of golf never enters their mind when considering meetings. Some may be hesitate to play golf with women when meeting for the first time because they are unsure of their skill level. Because of this hesitation, women are missing out on key opportunities to reach their business or career goals.
The Founder of Golf Women Mean Business, Patrina King, understands that being successful is not always a straight process. Patrina played competitive golf throughout high school but decided against choosing any of the 36 opportunities to play golf in college and attended without any extracurricular activities in order to focus on getting her career started.
Upon completing college, Patrina eventually became the President of a Woman-Owned Background Investigations company that provided criminal background checks to corporations and non-profit organizations. It was at this point in her career that she realized just how big of a role golf would play in her road to success.
After shattering an opportunity to obtain a major account for her Background Investigations firm due to her playing competitively vs for “business”, Patrina knew something had to be done so that other women would not make the same mistake. This is when Patrina decided to combine her excellence in business with her fondness for philanthropy and create Golf Women Mean Business.
