Golf can be as affordable as you make it. I would save up $3 in change and play the local rinky-dink par 3 before I gave it up. Until July of this year I was using old Armour 845s I paid $37 for. I can be done on a tight budget, hang in there. When times are tough you will need an outlet to burn frustration. Best wishes.
I estimate I have spent only £600 in 7 years. I guess that maybe about 1000 dollars in your money.
Golf can be done on a budget and I like the idea of playing on a short course. Keep your short game touch you can always find your long game when you get through your difficulties.
Hope it works out for you it can definitely be a real struggle making ends meet, I can certainly relate to that.
I'd look on craigslist first. It's the end of the season and people with cheap clubs will be looking to get rid of them. If you lived in CO I'd give you an iron set. I have 5 sets of Tommy Armour 845s on craigslist right now, all have near new Winn DriTac's and I haven't had a nibble at $40 a set. I've got more money in the grips than I spent on the irons. I played all of them at various times through 2013 all do the job.
Stay away from Golfsmith for used gear. They don't give you much if you sell used clubs to them and they way overcharge if you buy.
Hate to hear it. A pitching wedge and a BirdieBall or Almost Golf Ball or some other practice ball and your neighborhood park should keep your swing sharp.
FWIW, while I don't have money problems, I have time problems (self employed with a wife who enjoys being around me and two very young children). I don't get to play a lot of rounds (2-4 times a month), but I do a lot of practice behind my house and I find it very rewarding and enjoyable. Make some sort of game or challenge for yourself and get after it. Best of luck to you.
