Golf is and has been a traditionally expensive sport to play. The cost of equipment and fees associated with playing make it a much more expensive sport than say, basketball, which requires only a hoop and a ball.

Golf has gradually become a sport enjoyed by the masses but is still one of the more expensive sports to play.
