Around here, all of them. And for sanctioned events, TD has agreed to comply with PDGA payouts.
Two drawbacks to deciding by player vote. One would be there are a LOT of options; the election could take a while. Another is that players who care about the payout may be reluctant to sign up if it's to be decided in the players' meeting.
