Then my Dad bought me a new set of Callaway's with me having to promise to play more often. I've played more over the last 2 months than I ever have.

A lot, which is good, I have enjoyed it.
I probably would have spent it all on a different hobby to be honest.
If I invested it or saved it, I would be retired, debt free, and bored as heck.
Likewise. And a lot fewer great memories, and especially, a lot fewer great friends.

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?
One can NOT equate the money spent on golf Vs. buying something else.

I would only have put the money in retirement funds if not golf, but then what would i do with it?

Been hacking consistently for say 5 years now. Member for 3 years, so that's about $1.2k pa. Before that let's say $30 every 2 weeks or so on average in green fees so that's about $5k.
First set of clubs were $1.5k which I've since sold for $800 to fund a new set for $4.5k (rounded up cos I've bought 2 putters since) so that's $5,200.
Balls are $100 every quarter for the last 3 years (before that I pretty much used second hand balls, usually found in hazards until I lost them so cost IMO was negligible) so $1,200.
Lessons probably in the vicinity of $600.
I've left out tees and gloves cos I don't actually remember and clothes since I can wear them everywhere and they're not golf specific. So total in 5 years I've spent about $12k.
Why on earth did I just undertake this exercise :-(

2015-2017: In terms of money spent to enter tournaments and related expenses = approx $9500-$10,000. That doesn't include my monthly dues for the club I'm a member at to practice and play on the regular. On the flip side I've made approx $8400 in cash and credit from the same time period. So if over three years of tournament play the net is $1500-$1600 in the hole I think I've done pretty well.

A few extra thoughts: * if someone is an avid golfer and the travel to golf, they would include this as a golf expense. If you otherwise just travel with family and while you are there just happen to have a round of golf, you would not call this a golf expense, but vacation.
If I just do a little math over the course of one year: Let's say it is $3000 a year, and I do another 70 rounds or so, ( I still work full time) assuming that for every round I do 1 hour at the range, that works out to $8.57 an hour. That is pretty cheap entertainment considering.
Now the retired guy across the street did twice as many as this, so he is golfing for under $5 an hour. That is less than the cost of going to the movies.
Last thought, how many years does golf add to your life? How much is this worth?

If I wanted to look at something where I spent the most amount of money and wonder what could have been done with that money instead it would be taxes.

My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my (large) golf related stash for what I told her I paid for it.

How much money? I haven't got any idea.
What else could I have bought with the money? Doesn't apply to me. I set aside discretionary money to use for golf; it's not like we went hungry so I could play.

Playing for 10 years. Spent $150,000 on CC membership and my wife left me for the head pro; she's got the Bentley and a 3 h/c, I'm living in a cold water flat and can't break 90 at the local muni.
No one's going to admit they spent $100k playing bogey golf for 20 years - it sounds weird and complicates divorce settlements (unless you live in Myrtle Beach, in which case golfers are automatically awarded greens fees and custody of the cart girl).
