Well in some cases one can play a round of Golf in an hour if they show up when course opens to play. No it is often not a minimum of $1,000 in equipment to play golf but even a good low end set up with everything will run $500 minimum. I have looked it up on Amazon with no name or knock off clubs and getting some cheep golf shoes $30 and then a $20 set of legal balls just in case you ever play a sanctioned amateur golf event will cost about $500 to play. Yeah the clubs themselves are $400 for a no name or knock off set of clubs about 2/3 to 3/4 of a full set of clubs and a bag on Amazon then take in the rest including tees and you are spending $500 for a low end golf set that has all the clubs you need to start off with. A 1 or 2 iron is often not used by beginners. Nor is a chipping wedge used by beginners, often a sand wedge takes that spot.
