It seems like, in the U.S., golf has certain perceived associations. It is often perceived as a sport for upper class people. It is also considered like an exclusive club.
Can anyone enlighten me on why? Why do average Joe's play basketball, baseball, football, etc, but when golf is mentioned, it's seen as a sport for the wealthy?
Is playing at a golf course expensive? Is golf equipment expensive to buy? Why is golf perceived to be for rich people?
