Plan well in advance so no one can object

Your boss. Your girlfriend. That guy in the pro shop. Don't give anyone a chance to say you can't go on this golf trip. To ensure universal approval and to nab your desired tee times, start planning six to twelve months in advance. Be upfront about the amount of time you'll spend away from home, and overestimate the amount of time you'll be away from your cell phone and computer. This lead time also means a greater number of emails and text messages exchanged among your golf buddies. Who doesn't love that?
