Taking Stock - Golf is king in Britain's boardrooms.

Directors prefer to tee off over other leisure pursuits.

FTSE-100 directors prefer a round of 18 holes to a night at the opera or skiing in the French Alps, according to a new survey.

And directors showed their wacky side too with ‘driving donkeys’, ‘the English home’ and ‘castle restoration’ all being mentioned.

Most revealing, though, was that only three board members listed spending time with their family as a favourite way of spending their spare time.

Meanwhile, Birmingham University has devised a new degree in golf.

And proving that everything has to add up these days, boffins decided to enlist the help of accountants to give the students a good grounding in finance. ?:
