I've played golf since I was very-young. When playing regularly, I usually have an 8 handicap. But I've noticed a very-alarming trend. Green-fees are out-of-sight. ( In my community, where there's only one course, the green fees are around $30, and the closest is 40 miles away (in Mammoth, a resort town where the green fees are even higher)or 60 miles away, where the green fees are more reasonable.) When I was in high school and college, I could afford to play golf every day. Today, I can no-longer afford to play. Last year, I played one round. And I've not had new clubs since '85. Given what they cost today, these too are out of my price range. How about those of you who golf? Are green fees and golf equipment prices keeping you off the course, or am I the only one?
