Roka said that Golf is one of the sporting activities that bring economic change among its practitioners.
“Golf is one of the best sporting disciplines globally which brings people together where they share ideas such as business concepts, opportunities and networks that mostly uplift their economic statuses,” Roka said.
He added: “It is my plea to ladies especially young women to join golf sport so that they should become stars while at the same time remaining financially independent.”
The Captain further said that his club has about 300 golfers and out of them 80 are female.
According to him, many people fail to join golf sport as they believe that the sport is mainly for highly privileged people, hence he said at his club everyone is allowed to play golf regardless of economic stability.
Meanwhile, Roka directed parents to let their children mostly girls to join Lilongwe Golf Club and he said that his club provides free golf playing materials and trainings.
