A lot of people enjoy the challenge of golf--it is by far the hardest recreational sport. Tennis is a piece of cake compared to golf.
People of vastly different skill levels can also play the game together. You can't do that with sports that you play against an opponent.
BTW, sometimes the top pro players will play a driver that has a different manufacturer's headcover on it. They let the public think they are playing one manufacturer's club, but in fact they are play a club made by a different company. This is as close to a "paint job" as they get in golf.
