Dressing right for the occasion is very important when you want to leave a lasting impression on someone. The same goes for the golf course, so I invited Elizabeth Noblitt from Shi Shi Putter one of the industries leading experts in golf fashion to discuss what we should wear on the golf course. Check out the video below and don’t forget to leave a comment or share it with your friends if you learned something!

Because its Masters week I had to write something around the subject and what better to talk about than the first two female members former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and business executive Darla Moore who were inducted this past year. This will actually be their first year at the Masters as members which is super exciting for us who love breaking the glass ceiling.
I hope everyone at least knows what the Masters is but if not its just the biggest golf tournament of the year and is hosted in my home state of Georgia at Augusta National.
Augusta National is the most exclusive club in America and has been all male until roughly 8 months ago. Being invited to be a member is one of the greatest honors and usually means you have made it in life or your career and you probably don’t need any more money, but being a member there only brings more connections and more opportunities for success.
Someone once told me that a Plummer could be a millionaire if he was a member at Augusta. I guess if you are rubbing elbows with Bill Gates and Warren Buffet success is inevitable. Anyways my point is that playing golf is great for business but being a member at a great club is even better. Not only do you develop quality relationships with the other members, you also have a place to take clients that they themselves couldn’t go without you. To avid golfers, playing golf courses they can’t get on (scarcity effect) and that they can’t even buy their way into makes your membership that much more valuable.
I’m sure my dad would hate me telling this story but I’m going to tell it anyways. A year ago in February he was invited to play Augusta national. This was a dream of his since he was a little boy and one of his friends and fellow member at the club he belongs to in Atlanta got him on. He’s never done business with this friend in the past but is using him as his lawyer for some big deals coming up in the future. Is this a coincidence? I don’t think so. To my dad playing a round at Augusta National was invaluable so the only way to repay the person who made it happen is getting him on the second best course in the nation or making him his go to lawyer.
Do you see the value now in golf and golf memberships? Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and business executive Darla Moore have paved the way for all of us in business and business golf and we should take advantage of their hard work. If you have any questions about the next steps to getting into golf for business or joining a country club don’t hesitate to ask and email me at email@example.com. Also if you liked what you read don’t be shy and share it.
Happy Masters Week!
Many of you might be asking yourselves how does playing golf actually make your more money? It’s pretty simple by helping you create and strengthen relationships you never would have had. Golf is a venue for coworkers and clients to get to know each other on a personal level as well as on a business level and most of it is figured out without even saying a word to one another. Nonverbal behaviors help us identify our playing partners integrity as well as how they handle pressure situations which can all be related back to how they are in the business world. For example if you have a tough shot over the sand trap onto the green, will you choke and flop it into the sand trap or will you take a deep breath, clear your mind and get it on the green? Just like a stressful presentation, will you choke or nail it? There are hundreds of little nuances to learn over time, but in the beginning there are only a few you have to follow to ensure a chance at making a solid connection with your golf partner.

The women’s golf apparel industry is quickly changing as more and more women get into the game which means we have more options to express ourselves. As business women we constantly wonder what exactly we can wear on the golf course.
We ask ourselves, “how short of a skirt can I wear and how bold of colors can I pull off out there on the course.” I’ve been playing golf since I was 15 and not until recently have I felt confident in the golf clothes I’ve been wearing. I discovered Lizzie Driver a year or so ago at the PGA show and fell in love with their line.
Now I have an outfit that I can wear to the office and on the golf course. So on Friday afternoon when all of my male counterparts are golfing I can go with them without changing!
But telling you how wonderful Lizzie Driver’s line is not why I’m so excited. I’m excited because LD has decided to team up with Highheelgolfer and be our official clothing sponsor. Eleven outfits are in the mail as we speak and I’m pumped. I can’t wait to show off my outfits at the upcoming golf networking happy hours and workshops! I’m going to look so stylish but also comfortable all at the same time. I’ve posted some pictures from their spring line the one I will be wearing and will make sure to post updates when I get the clothes!
When you invest 7 minutes to watch this, and apply the key strategies within, not only will you wow your fellow coworkers and clients with your golf etiquette knowledge, you’ll find yourself having more fun on the course and coupled with your beaming personality and smile you will be irresistible as someone to play with.
Picture this, you will opt in to play with your boss or client instead of staying at work late on Friday or going to the spa, instead you will develop relationships on the golf course because of your integrity for the game and in life. You will now be the it girl at work for company Scrambles and outings. Ladies this is just the beginning so enjoy!

Founder Highheelgolfer LLC
As you all may or may not know I guest blog for stilettosontheglassceiling.com every week and my post goes live every Friday. This week I told Marney (SOTGC author) that I needed to share this with my fellow highheelgolfers b/c it was too important for y’all not to read!
It all started a year or so ago when a good friend and mentor of mine Will Hamilton Co-Founder of fuzzyyellowballs.com (an HD online Tennis Coaching Site) suggested that I read a book called “Start With Why.” I started the book way back then, but never finished it. It wasn’t until I discovered audible.com that I got back into it. Anyways, this incredible book inspired me to tell you WHY I decided to start Highheelgolfer.
HOW TO STRETCH YOUR GOLF FASHION BUDGET
by Elizabeth Noblitt, fashion stylist and founder of Shi Shi Putter
If you are golfing for business, then it’s imperative that you “show up” – that you feel and look your best so that you have confidence to do your job on the course without worrying about how you look. The number one complaint I hear from women is that they have a hard time finding clothes that help them to do this – and stay within their budgets. Golf is an expensive sport, even before you get to the clothing racks. Click HERE to Read more on three ways to help you get the most value from your golf attire.
I met with Marney Reid last week to talk about the importance of golf and business and she loved my concept so much she wrote a post about it on her blog. She titled it Bringing Back “Tea Time” and discusses in this post who I am, where I came from and also highlights Highheelgolfer’s 1 and 2 Day Workshops! Click HERE and go check it out.

The first thing any woman trying to get ahead in business via golf should do is learn golf etiquette. Like all other sports it doesn’t matter how bad you are as long as you follow the rules and etiquette of the game and in some sports it can even be dangerous if you don’t know the etiquette. In this video I will teach you what to wear on the course, how to play ready golf, and putting green etiquette. Remember to like my video at the end! And leave any comments or questions!

Hey Y’all – this happened in January, but I just wanted to show you that I have a new alliance with Golf Belles Media and that the press release was on worldgolf.com – pretty big deal. Anyways click on the link below and check it out!
I’ve been playing a lot of golf lately and I’ve started to dissect and analyze why I play so well some days and so poorly on others. I’ve decided to attribute it to 2 things – playing partners and the difficulty of the course. I played Torrey Pines South Course and TPC Scottsdale Stadium course with random playing partners and my father. I shot a 93,95 respectively. I started out playing horribly and could never find a way to connect with my playing partners; either they were absolutely horrible and had to finish each hole outright which equaled super slow play or where just not very social people. When I played Morgan & Run and TPC Champions I shot 81,82 respectively.
The big news at this years PGA Merchandise show was Golf 2.0; this great new initiative to make golf more fun and family friendly. Some of the initiatives included making the game easier by making the golf hole(cup) larger or bringing the tees even farther forward. I’m not totally against any of these ideas, but I want to see if the women out there really are not playing golf because its too challenging.
I think most women either don’t get into the game our quit the game because people are too snooty at clubs, they feel like no men will want to play golf with them, or because it just takes too much time to play the game. Oh and its also really expensive.
I was fortunate enough to score a free IPING cradle at the PGA merchandise show but didn’t truly realize its purpose until after some quality bonding time with my father.
First let me preface this story by stating that I do not live with my parents, I am only visiting during my transition to San Diego, where I will be officially living feb 25th!
Ok so back to my story. I returned to Atlanta with this really neat putting aid but I’m not one to just practice by myself, so I made a point to start putting in front of my dad and yell out “bummer my putting handicap is 10.3″ of course he runs over to see how he can help,
