The focus of this study was to identify the travel motivations that best predict expenditures on travel related variables for active sport tourists traveling to play golf. The targeted sample for this study was golfers from the United States who had traveled to play golf within the last two years. Regression analysis was used in the study to investigate the relationships between social psychological motives for tourism travel variables on the different categories of travel expenditures. Regression analysis revealed that overall, personal seeking (ps) motives were the most influential in explaining tourism expenditures with regards to travel related variables. This study results illustrated that motivations for travel and travel expenditures are moderately connected and could be useful for understanding active sport tourists travel expenditures, as well as having practical implications for sport marketers, sport organizations, and sport facilities.
