This is hard to say, and I hesitate to answer, "It's up to you."

Golfing can be a great way to engage in Networking. Generally, though, not much networking will get done if you are a true beginner. You would need to golf with someone who can help you learn the game and is patient.

Golf isn't cheap. Equipment is expensive, greens fees are expensive, and it is time consuming. To get halfway decent, on average, I would say you need to take a lesson (3-4 would be better), hit at least 50 practice balls a week (twice a week would be better) and golf on a course once a week.

I love the game. I love the quiet, the scenery, the competition with myself (because you really technically do not play against other people, you test yourself against the course). To me, this is my way of relaxing. And of course, I would say yes, learn to golf.
