Usually our meetings are tied in with golf, non-golfers are left out because they feel uncomfortable on the golf course if they're inexperienced golfers. Golf is not an easy sport and it can be intimidating playing with your colleagues

With a motto that says "Golf doesn't have to be serious" Kris Moe's Golf Commotion golf programs may be a breath of fresh air for meeting planners.

Golf's hard enough and when you're performing before your co-workers, it can be down right embarrassing. How can you build relationships, foster communication and respect when there is such a diversity of golfing abilities? The answer: Golf Commotion

"Usually our meetings are tied in with golf, non-golfers are left out because they feel uncomfortable on the golf course if they're inexperienced golfers. Golf is not an easy sport and it can be intimidating playing with your colleagues," says Jennifer Fusco, senior event manager with Bank of America.

Kris Moe Golf Schools is offering corporate groups programs and games that even non-golfers may play while still challenging the experienced golfers. For years, meeting and incentive planners have been stumped as they've attempted to include more of their non-golfing participants in their golf programs.

"We try to offer something for everyone, says Kris Moe, many of our games can be played indoors or outdoors with the non-golfer in mind. Our putting games for instance anyone can play because everyone can putt a ball. We've just made it more interesting with fun targets to shoot at, you can putt in a Skee-ball game, play three-ball on a retrofitted billiard table or even play on our mini-golf course that is black lighted."

The outdoor activities combine challenges with golf tips. The participate may have to hit a ball over a wall, if they can do it great, if not, the golf pro will show them the form to successfully get the ball over the wall. The competition makes it exciting, the change of stations keeps it interesting and there is plenty of time for participants to talk and form those necessary bonds for teamwork.

Some groups want conventional golf. For them, Kris Moe puts on a pro-am tournament or an instructional day with a pro (9 or 18 holes followed by a clinic) "Most golfers love the experience of playing with a golf pro. We'll even bring the group back to the range for some hands-on coaching and maybe a golf skill challenge or two."
