15 Things to Avoid on a Buddies Trip – #8 is important!
Going on a buddies trip is always something to look forward to.
The golf trip is among the last bastions of fraternity in our culture. People move away, start families, become wrapped up in careers. The annual golf excursion becomes one of the few junctures former partners-in-crime get to revive their camaraderie.
Which is why it’s imperative the trip’s format and foundation are flawless.
From a misinformed invite to a misunderstanding of the rules, just one slip can sink the entire (friend)ship. For those planning an upcoming golf trip, recognize the following faux pas to prevent your outing from falling into such despair.
This comes off as cruel, and seems to be at odds against the friendship ethos. However, one of the primary ambitions of said trip is to, you know, play golf. Speaking from personal experience, non-golfers who participate in weekend-long trips become bored within hours, often turning into a distraction and, more times than not, hurting the morale of the rest of the unlucky souls in the group.
