I'm such a minimalist. I usually carry 9 discs (and could easily do with 5). A couple are DX plastic, and most were bought used. I use a $20-$30 backpack that someone else converted. I don't own a disc golf cart, and I don't carry a stool or chair. That means I generally have less than $100 on my back on the disc golf course. Again, I know I am in the minority. That is part of the appeal of disc golf as well: I can play my way with minimal equipment.

I have a feeling that if I played golf, my approach would be about the same, but I would have $400 with me instead of $100.
