Question by dandelion_girl: What makes golf one of the most expensive sports?
Well i’ve never golf but i do watch all those people golfing on my telly, so it makes me wonder that whenever my uncle said that he went golfing the other weekend – my other relatives would be like WOW cuz well, golfing is expensive and the “rich” would always be the one that could afford to play for leisure for a sport like that. So why, why is golf expensive? Is it the golf set?
Answer by Alex A
A brand new complete golf set costs around 700 dollars.
But there is a wide variety of Clubs to buy, like woods, irons, wedges, putters. etc.
Driver- $ 500
Fairway woods- $ 300
Iron Set- $ 700-1000
Wedges- $ 90-140
Putter- $ 70-300
Golf bag- $ 90-$ 300
Not to mention the balls, and if youre just starting, you’ll easily go through a dozen
Golf balls range from $ 10 to $ 50 a dozen.
Also, the dozens of golf lessons you will need to get good.
And the green fees can get pretty expensive, some are $ 20 for 18 holes; but some can be really expensive, like $ 200.
