The startling revelation that business chiefs prefer a round of 18 holes to a night at the opera or skiing in the French Alps, comes in a new survey by Hemscott which reveals FTSE 100 directors’ favourite diversions.
While golf weighed in at number one, football – for all it’s resurgent popularity – was nowhere, with music, theatre, sailing and shooting all registering in the top ten.
And directors showed their wacky side listing some more unusual hobbies. Driving donkeys, ‘the English home’ and castle restoration all appeared in the survey.
Perhaps most revealing though, was that only three board members listed spending time with their family as a favourite way of spending their spare time.
