Jay Flemma (A Walk In The Park) and I have been discussing the expense of golf.
Golf is not cheap. The equipment is expensive. The green fees are expensive. You spend 4-5 hours away from work where you could be MAKING money.
How much are you willing to spend on a round of golf? How much do you spend over the course of a year for equipment, rounds, ibuprophen, hotdogs and all related items? I’m almost afraid to calculate it.
I had a theft in my garage a couple of years ago. I frantically checked to see if my clubs had been stolen and thank goodness they hadn’t. It was at that point that I realized how much it would cost me to replace them. $400/driver, $300-400 for fairway woods, $1000 irons, $125-150×4 wedges, $200 putter, $200 bag, $100 premium balls, $100 rain gear, $50 umbrella….. If my golf bag had been ripped off I would have been out well over $3000.
