A wise man once said: “If you want to climb the ladder of life, play golf ⛳” I play golf not because I am rich but because it's a lifetime investment. Golf will discipline you, it gives you a network of powerful and affluent in society, and your network is your net worth. Have a realistic goal, business, etc. enter the course, learn, play, keep fit, socialize, and watch your whole life change. Remember, most of the biggest deals are made on the golf course. I ❤️⛳
