    This will be my most expensive season ever. Should be around $5k, when its over, spent on equipment, lessons, playing and practicing (in order of decreasing cost). No regrets though.

    Depends on how you look at the cost of a hobby. German cars are another hobby of mine, and they are not cheap. Mine start at 80k and go to 125k. My buddy has 21 show cars. Another buddy has show horses and shows cars, and another friend has four planes and a hanger with a condo in it...

    Shoes are my other hobby... but running out of room has cooled that spending... so it's probably golf

    Without a doubt, it is the most expensive hobby I’ve ever had. I was a goalie playing competitive ice hockey growing up and this is still way more expensive!

    This is my third season playing and I went fully into the deep end. For the first 18 months I hit balls at least 3 days a week and I still play every weekend. If I had to estimate, I’d say in less than 3 years I’ve spent $1,500 on clubs, $5k on range time (living in Manhattan makes it even more $$), $800 on lessons (probably should have spent more here, less on other areas!) and at least $10k on rounds of golf.

    All that said, I did just break into a single digit handicap this weekend so it hasn’t totally been in vain!

    By far. I’ve paired it with travel though and have gotten to play some great courses all over the world.

    Is golf your most expensive hobby? Im really curious to see what guys have to say about this. For me it certainly is my favorite hobby. I work in the business and enjoy what I do very much. I spend my fair share still on greens fees, new shafts, grips and the likes. I also know guys that play every weekend and only use golf balls they find and haven’t bought a single new club in 10 years. They’d rather spend their money on their shoes, boats, watches, cars, guitars etc.

    It is now, drag racing and trapshooting were much more expensive.

    If you don’t include spending money on home improvement and cars then yes by far.

    Golf is pretty tame compared to racing downhill mountain bikes or bass fishing.

    Nope. Hunting and fly fishing outpace my golf expenditures. But with kid #1 on the way, there will be sacrifices to be made. I'll just have to be happy with what I have.

    I buy guitars and basses, so no golf is not my most expensive vice. I also don’t buy major OEM clubs, so my gear is much less expensive.

    For me, it is. I used to be into snowmobiling and ATVing and those were certainly more expensive than golf but now golf is my most expensive.

    Golf is definitely one of my more expensive hobbies. I also enjoy guns and shooting, which can be very expensive depending on what firearm you have and what ammo you have to buy. I also love drinking bourbon, which I have been keeping it cheap but if I see a certain bottle "Blantons" I have to get it.

    Golf is by far my most expensive hobby, membership and constant buying of new clubs all adds up

    But it gets me out the house and in the fresh air for hours at a time and it would be a lot cheaper if I joined a cheaper club & bought less golf clubs so swings and roundabouts!
