Golf will always take time no matter what your level of experience is. If you want to be a golfer, you have to commit yourself to the idea, to playing and to continuously learning.
Golf takes time to make time. I love to play golf. I would play every day if I could. But as it turns out, I normally get to play only once or twice a month. I work full time Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm, and the weekends are normally filled with juggling chores, obligations, appointments, and wanting to relax with my family. I don’t always have the time to play golf, but usually about twice a month I take time to make time. I pick a weekend morning or an evening after work to get in at least nine holes.
