How Much Does Golf Cost?
Ever wonder how much you spend on golf in one season? I have heard people say it's an expensive sport but I wanted to know how much I actually spend on the game I love.
I spent the entire season tracking every penny I spent on a round of golf (not including gas but that can be calculated) so I can tell you, my readers, what it actually cost to play golf for an entire season. Without further hesitation, I give you The Cost of a Golf Season.
The Cost of a Golf Season
The grand total: $4,252
Where Did the Money Go
The bulk of it was golf but it's funny how the "little" things add up. Here's a breakdown of where some of the money was spent:
Golf: I played 34 rounds of golf this year. The total cost, $2,744. This includes when I walked, used a cart, or took a caddy. The average round of golf for me cost $80.70. The cheapest round was $16, walking 18 holes at a public course in March. The most expensive was $205 at The Boca Raton Resort in Boca Raton, Florida. This also factors in my golf trips but not lodging (lodging was $217).

Apparel: The second largest expense was apparel. This is what I was referring to as the "little things". Without realizing it, I managed to spend $605 on apparel. Some of this was necessary such as the golf short from Aronimink (I was soaked from the rain), a pair of golf shorts, gloves, and a rain jacket. The rest, ball markers (I collect them) and a few additional golf shirts. I spent $100 in Pine Valley's shop and could have easily spent $100 more if I had the money.
