Pay to play disc golf
 
Should it be free or pay to play?

I'll pay for nice courses. Generally speaking, free courses are one of the (many) main draws to playing this sport, in my opinion. Having a "free" hobby is pretty sweet.

I will pay for a good course or a unique course. I also think that when I play a private course the right thing to do is make some kind of donation, or purchase whatever discs, clothes etc that I can to help support the cause. It has to be a lot of work to build and maintain a nice course.

Even disc golf's most elite pay to play courses don't cost hardly anything compared to ball golf. Pay to play in terms of disc golf is just fine. I also agree with sloppydisc that supporting private courses is a must. One of the main draws of disc golf is free courses, but even the pay to play courses are really inexpensive. The only part that may hit your wallet is the ski slope courses and lift tickets.

I love the pay to play. It keeps the "riff raff" out, and the course amenities and maintenance are usually top notch. I don't mind paying a few dollars to not have to wait behind groups of eight who only care about drinking and smoking. I'm glad that there are still free courses, but I have been buying seasonal memberships at two separate courses for the last five years.

Wow that castle rock complex looks amazing! I can't wait til it opens. And it's not even too far from the Cities!

Great article--sums it well. Free courses for all, pay courses for those willing to pony up for the experience. Naturally, pay courses should offer something above and beyond what local free courses do.

Castle rock does look amazing. I hope we see more of the complexes come into development. I don't see them being financially lucrative, but if the goal is to be self sufficient, it's achievable. People who love disc golf creating multiple disc courses for people who love disc golf.

having a private course on your own land is tough work, so i dont mind paying for those. but i wont pay for a course in a public park because the state, county, or city/town pays for upkeep or at least assists.
