How much jack did you spend on golf paraphernalia and golf related activities this year... I am still calculating..... My guess is round $2000
A lot, I mean a lot!
And I'm with Aveo, I love to play golf. And I don't have a boat, four-wheeler's, don't hunt or fish. I play golf, as much as I can, so all my disposable income is on golf, and my lovely fiancee likes to play as much as me, so all our trips revolve around golf.
Joined new Country Club which cost a lot for an initiation fee and dues (at Old Country Club until September and then the rest of the year at new course).
Bought new Mizuno MP-4 Irons, new Titleist driver, new Titleist wedges, new bag. $2200 putter is only thing not replaced, although I tried a Ghost Spider Putter and hated it.
Went to Palm Springs for a guys golf trip in January spent $1,200 for entire package. Went to Southport NC at beginning of March for a long weekend spent about $250 on golf, went to Myrtle Beach at the end of March, spent about $300 for golf. Spent $1000 to play just golf on a trip to Hawaii, with a three day stop in San Diego and a 2 day stop in Palm Springs in April (played 10 rounds over the 11 days). Spent $750 on a trip to Pinehurst, including playing No. 2 (which was $300). Played in the Baltimore Country Club member-Guest, spent $550 just on entry fee. Took November Trip to Florida, spent another $375 just on golf.
Add in golf balls, new shirts, shorts, etc., probably close to $10,000-12,000. OUCH!
