I've gone through may hobbies from cycling, motorcycles, to golf. And it's not the most expensive, but it's the only one I still do.
I wouldn't even know how to rank my hobbies in terms of expense. After cooking/dining out, I probably spend the second most time golfing, practicing, and reading about it/watching videos. If time is money, then maybe Golf moves up to the number 2 slot. However, I game old and hand-me-down clubs. I go on two pretty affordable golf trips to Myrtle Beach each year, and my green fees aren't too bad. I'd say the bulk of my expense has been range balls, balls, gloves, and tee times. My dad got a golf simulator recently though and his house is near my office, so I've been able to cut back at least a $100 a month on range balls, which is great.
Eating, Travel, Sailing, Golf, Hunting, Fly Fishing, Cigars, Alcohol? That's probably a fairly accurate current ranking. I don't ski or ride horses much anymore (but my kids do).

I'd probably have to say watch collecting is my most expensive hobby. I think I spent close to 100K on watches last year....that was an absolute gut check and decided to spend more time and money on golf....which would be more enjoyable.
I have lots of hobby such as soccer, snowboarding, photography, videography, and golf.
And It is the most expensive hobby! Can't stop spending money on clubs...

Try car restoration and a golf hobby will seem like pennies on a dollar.
My benchrest shooting hobby gets pretty expensive. Layed off that since i started golfing more, but its catching up quick!
Been racing since childhood, it will always be the most expensive thing I've ever done and that includes divorce.
Currently just running a drag car but it's all painful.
Expensive but worth every penny.
Agreed. We are here once. Enjoy as much of it as we can.
definitely my most expensive hobby and being a member here doesn't help one bit now...
Nope, watches and cars.
Lots of cool responses I’ve seen in this thread. My money is spent quite a lot on golf and I’m looking to slow that down a bit. House hunting seems overwhelming at the moment.
Agreed, the line between hobby and life is quite blurred. Given the true peace it brings, I try not to think much about it!
I used to belong to two country clubs but I only had one set of clubs. Now I have no country club membership, and I have 5 sets of clubs.
Japanese golf clubs are a little like PRS guitars.
Guitars are my most expensive hobby.
Now that i stopped modifying cars. **** YES!

It's an addiction I don't want help with.
Pending divorce mitigation will surpass it though.
I own two Jeeps and one set of clubs. You decide :) Those that know know.
It's my main hobby, so yes it's the most expensive. Until this year my clubs were hand me downs from my dad, I've upgraded them this year and found some really good deals.
Car collecting is much worse for me
By far it's the most expensive. I even spend more on golf attire (shoes, shirts etc) then I do for my regular everyday outfits. It's funny, I don't think twice about spending $130 for golf shoes, but I REFUSE to spend that much for say sneakers.
Not sure if Travel Hockey is a hobby but I enjoy watching my son play hockey over the winter and spring seasons and it is a lot more expensive than my golf but well worth the money as he loves it.
Fishing by far!!! Just got myself a hand crafted bamboo fly rod that easily puts my whole golf bag to shame.....
😁 just picked up a Custom 24 10 top.
By far, golf is my most expensive hobby. The only other competitor would be reading - I have an affinity for new books that I will never read.

Golf isn’t the most expensive, but it will be done more than the other two I have as I get older. My paintball hobby is pretty expensive and puts golf to shame in money spent. Owning a Jeep for rock crawling can be more expensive, but I do all my own work on the Jeep, so it isn’t bad.
For me golf isn’t cheap but as a hobby I feel get my most value out of it as the club I joined is basically in my backyard.
Motorcycle road-racing was not only more expensive but last season I only did 6 weekend events and spent what was to me a small fortune. Race entry fees, tires, race gas, parts add up quick every weekend. Plus all the travel time to the tracks far exceeds the amount of seat time I’d have racing my bike. But man was it fun!
Its beyond expensive, but worth every penny!
Nope, mountain biking for me, my current bike was over $6,000 USD.
