How to Join a Country Club Here in the Philippines?

By: Crown Asia

Every person has a way of spending time for leisure and recreation. For every activity, more than the excitement, there should be some sense of satisfaction accompanying the adrenaline or even the calm and comfort of those splendid times.

More so, there are different ways in which people invest, depending on the purpose. Some invest in real estate through condos for sale, houses and lots, and RFO homes. There are people who invest in businesses relating to agriculture, food, clothing line, or household essentials. Let’s not forget also those who invest in their spirituality through pilgrimage, church-hopping, and well-established prayer life. Lastly, there are people who spend money to invest in their mental and social wellness. This can be through professional therapy, art exposure, a writing journey, yoga, hiking, and even social activities that will help clear their minds and keep all the happy hormones kicking off.

Have you watched movies where people play golf with their friends and colleagues and there are spectators, people who hold umbrellas, serve food, or talk about business on one side? That is a country club- but there is more to it. A country club is a membership organization offering access to world-class golf courses, expensive facilities, and amenities for social events and recreation. More than these, there are also five-star restaurants, bars, function halls, shopping areas, fitness gyms, and a caliber of staff and professional service exclusive only for the members of the club. Just like the other activities mentioned beforehand, a country club is a form of investment in different exciting ways.

Establishing connections, building relationships, and having a sense of community are just a few of the best parts of belonging to a country club. Crown Asia, the premium arm of Vista Land and Lifescapes Inc. for 25 years has always been true to its commitment to finding ways in which its clients and homeowners may invest for a better and brighter lifestyle.
