Startup life requires sunshine, great food and culture, and a microclimate that brings out the best in people (and golfers) everyday all year long.
Aside from being listed as one of the best places to live on the planet - boasting a great mix of people, education, culture, year-round weather and a majesty of

The practice of innovating as reflected in the daily life of a startup venture or entrepreneur is not dissimilar to the discipline and rituals required to master a

by minute - unlike many other sports with more stable parameters.
For these and other reasons, golf is a good instructor for those looking to practice the art of innovation and the marketing of new products.
