I used to play golf but I stopped because it was a bit too expensive. Just for fun, lets compare golf with horses.
Membership in a smaller club near me, $350 per year.
Golfclubs, $150 for a used set of clubs.
Balls, gloves, shoes, $100
10 trips to other clubs, (green fee) $500
Total, $1100 year one, after that $950 a year.
A cheap horse, $1500
Cost per month, food, vets, shoes, $400
Total, $6300 year one, after that $4800 per year.
Playing golf is considered to be a rich mans game but having a horse costs at least 5 times more.
Ok maybe this isn’t the whole truth. Many player pay much more for clubs and clothes and stuff. But a “normal” horse can cost $10 000 as well. The point is, I’m fed up with horse mom’s calling me a snob for playing golf.
