They use this website to look at courses around my area, they don't have accounts though.

---58

2. What state do you reside in?
---SC

3. Number of years playing?
---22

4. How many discs do you carry per round? How many are in the bag?
---15, more or less. (What's the difference between carrying, and in the bag?)

5. Where do you normally purchase discs? Online or storefront?
---Nowhere. I get a fair amount playing in tournaments. Occasionally end up with a lost & found for which I can't find the owner.

6. What is the most you can justify spending on a 'thrower' disc?
---$20, if I had to.

7. Have you been in a disc golf exclusive (disc golf only) store?

---Nothing in particular. The best thing to see in stores is variety of manufacturers.

9. How far would you travel to go to a disc golf store if you knew it was quality and had a lot of variety in what your looking for?
---I wouldn't. I'll visit if it's at a location I'm already going to, though.

But you can throw my survey out; my circumstances are fairly unique, and I doubt they apply to any potential customers of yours.

1. How old are you?
30s

2. What state do you reside in?
Florida

3. Number of years playing?
14

4. How many discs do you carry per round? How many are in the bag?
It depends on the course. Usually a dozen or more

5. Where do you normally purchase discs? Online or storefront?
Online, but only because there are no storefronts nearby


6. What is the most you can justify spending on a 'thrower' disc?
As little as possible

7. Have you been in a disc golf exclusive (disc golf only) store?
Yes, whenever I'm aware of one nearby

8. What items do you like to see in stores besides discs?
Hats, bags, and retrievers

9. How far would you travel to go to a disc golf store if you knew it was quality and had a lot of variety in what your looking for?
To be honest, I wouldn't go out of my way just for a dg store. The frequency of my visits would depend on the store's proximity to a quality course. The better the course, the more likely I'd throw it and subsequently pop in to sniff around
