We asked the following question of Cynthia Grosso, founder of the Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette, who learned to play golf from her CEO dad:

Is it ok to enjoy a few beers with your clients on the course?

Business etiquette says you shouldn't have more than two drinks at a function, and that applies to business golf as well.  If you're planning on having a drink together at the 19th hole, then you should have only one drink on the course.

If you're the host, on the front nine have a soda or water.  Then you could perhaps get a drink at the turn. If you're the guest, and the host doesn't drink, you shouldn't either drink either.

People have to understand that business golf is work.  Whether you realize it our not, people are watching you. You're being "interviewed" by  your playing partner, either for a job or  to determine whether to do business with you.
