music and disc golf

my engineering buddy and i are putting together some statistics on how many people listen to music and play disc golf. we were looking towards building a back pack with a built in speaker system, so that people can listen to their choice of music while they play golf. if you guys have any idea how many people or if you like to play yourself please comment and give me some feedback.

I like music and I like disc golf.
However, I don't like when other people listen to loud music while I'm playing.
Headphones are great.
Loud, noisy speakers are not.

FWIW, I am a huge music lover, but would rather leave it off of the course.

I always have listened to music while on the course...except for the tourney rounds.

Originally hooked up an old school MP3 player to a small portable speaker. Now I just use my Iphone.

I don't care for it, personally. When using the practice baskets it's one thing, but not during a round.

i used to all the time, but have recently stopped in these last couple of months. i have seen my concentration go up as well as being able to find discs a lot easier and quicker. you take fore granted the value of being able to hear your disc hit.

I'll generally listen to music from my phone (it doesn't seem to negatively affect my game), especially if there's not much of a crowd at a course. If it is more crowded I do without.

This makes a great case for your phone, and is perfect for music on the course. I generally only play music if I am playing a solo round. I'll keep it just loud enough for me to hear it, but low enough that it won't bother anyone.
