Specific density of gold is 19.25

Titanium is 4.5

So Gold is 327% heavier than Titanium.

Given that is gold plated, not made of gold, so the volume of gold needed is significantly lower.

All and all, I would suspect it adds a bit of weight to the club, but also depends on how the club is made. Taking a club and gold plating it would increase weight. Designing a club around gold platting could keep the weight down.

That gold layer is angstroms thick, so I doubt it adds weight.  It is put on like the aluminum in mylar balloon film in a vacuum metalizing process.
