“Without question, the most expensive sport I play is golf,” Troy McKnight, a partner at the PMAlliance project management firm in Stone Mountain, Ga.,said in an e-mail. ”The clubs themselves can run you an average of $500 to $2,500, depending on the quality you want.”
The expenses don’t stop there. “Just the green fees can amount to several hundred per month. That is, of course, assuming you are not part of a country club, which can run you tens of thousands of dollars per year,” he said. And don’t forget the golf balls, tees, lessons and more.
“I would estimate that I conservatively spend around $2500 per year,” said McKnight. "That's without a country club membership, and I already have top of the line clubs."
