Golf's not really much more expensive than other common recreational activities. More than some, less than most. Skiing, boating, hunting, fishing, tennis, RV-ing, etc. Golf doesn't require a large up-front investment nor travel. And as for the time spent playing it, I think you're not quite getting the whole recreation thing.

Why is someone who uses legal tax exemptions the one to blame? How about the congresspukes who add 4,000 pages of exemptions, credits and penalties to the tax code every year?

Taxes are not merely intended to take in revenue. You don't need 80,000 pages to do that. The principal purpose of the tax code is to control, or at least influence "behavior". And we all know what the IRS is for.
