How long have you been playing golf and $ spent estimate so far?
Posted 28 January 2018 - 06:53 AM
No idea what I have spent in that time, though I used to buy and sell equipment all the time...donít do that anymore.
What would I have spent the money on? Probably nothing in particular.
I donít see golf in terms of what I spent/spend, but what I have gotten out of it...and that you canít put a price tag on.

I don't know what else I would have spent the money on that I enjoy more though.

Finally, what might you have bought with that money on instead, depending on how long you've been playing? A smartphone, a new car, a new house, your own island?
I've played almost 20 years...if you're asking about equipment? lessons too? range balls? clothes? or golf trips too? tournaments? bets? club membership(s)? It could range from a "little bit" to "a whole lot more than that"! But ALL well spent and happy I did it!

Bag has been mostly set for awhile now, so no more there. Bag trial and error, on 3rd iron set and 4th driver, 3rd fairway wood, third hybrid, 5th wedge setup, 4th putter. Almost all pre-owned, but the process has been about 2k over 3 years.
A ton of greens fees. First two years played almost daily at a cheaper muni and hit lots of balls. That's probably the bulk of it.
Haven't spent too badly on balls. Played used for awhile. Then hit a run of too good to pass up cheaper urethane balls. Up to about 6 doz stocked up, which is nothing on wrx (so I tell the wife).
More like 4k a yr. All worth it.

I really don't buy much in the way of equipment. Nothing of note last year.
When I was a member of a university course, add about 2k to that total.

2. My wife may be looking in.

I've lived in places with short golf seasons in my late 30's and early 40's and spent alot of time snowboarding in the winters.
Golf didn't become a primary recreational pursuit until maybe the past 10-12 years ( I'm 56 )
A guess at how much I've spent? Maybe 10k on equipment ( I have a thing for putters ). I budget about $250 per month for greens fee and minor equipment like gloves, balls etc.
I try to stay in that range for those Items.
I'm fortunate that my wife is understanding when it comes to the occasional over spend.
I'm pretty happy with my clubs as of now and may just spend my money on some lessons since I've had only one in 6-7 years. Need to do a series, but hard to find a really good teacher.

I've played 30 years too. I'm guessing $75,000 because I'm a thrifty golfer.
