Most of the time these costs are sponsorships or 'in-kind' payments

Even at the HS level the costs for golf course time aren't too bad.

They pale in comparison to swimming costs. Now at the college level, most of the facility cost is covered under student fees. Whereas a HS is paying a municipal pool or such. Swimming facilities in general are incredibly expensive to run. Our local one is a combination of pool and ice rink and barely breaks even. Local folks have sometimes suggested to close the rink (we're in N.C.) not realizing that the pool costs 3x to 4x what the rink does and if the rink isn't there, the whole facility would be losing money.
