It is fashionable in business and entertainment circles here, to try to copy the West. Unfortunately, as others have shown in this thread, those doing the copying do not really know much about what they are doing. This is why such imitations here, often come off more as satirical parody than serious replication...

Well, Russia does after all always follow the west.

Sales guys always love taking clients out for golf.

That's because they can pretend they are doing business on the golf course and therefore, A) get out of the office for the day, and B) charge it as a business expense.

So basically, Sales guys love business golf because it removes them from having to do business and sticks the bill with someone else.

That process is certainly popular. I've always got supplier sales guys hounding me to go golfing with them. It has nothing to do with deals - they just want an excuse to go play their favorite game on the company's dime.
