Perhaps the long range business strategy will be to dig a new water hazard on courses before installing each machine?

Otherwise, I see it being an easy target for thieves. One broken front window = 150ish easy to grab discs.

Its awesome. I played a tourney at kendall indian hammocks 2 weeks ago and the demographic in that area is not familiar with the sport. People use the baskets as trash cans and bbq's. I tried to explain it to my family but it didn't take well. There are no Spanish words for the shots in disc golf. I feel that if people see the discs it may spark interest and more park goers will get introduced to the sport or maybe just stop misusing the baskets.

I could see this doing well at a course located by a Rec center. We have several around us, and I always see newbs going out with one disc, lose it on the 4th or 5th hole and have to leave. Place this inside the Rec Center, not only can you replace it, but instead of a "disc rental" you just purchase one. Like the idea.

I think this is a phenomenal idea, but would rather see it more Redbox style: touch screen where you choose weight and color, rather than like a candy machine.

Still, put this in the "I wish I would have thought of that" department.

Edit: Very cool that they have the discs organized by skill level.

Been wondering how long this would take to hit the forums. Teeboxx launches on the first day of spring, then much more info will be available (as far as I know) I'm left in the dark on most everything, so don't expect me to be able to shed too much light, but I can address some questions about the product, my dad is part owner, this is the company I turned down a sponsorship from Dynamic Discs to support. Teeboxx will be a force in this sport in the coming years, and this vending machine is a foundation for many exciting things to come. The first machine was installed in Miami at Kendall Indian Hammocks DGC, there is a seemingly endless list of locations that are in the works to recieve a machine all over the country.

They need to put the weight on the front of the disc.
