The image on the am side seems to vary a lot by city. Travel around and you might see younger jock types, middle aged professionals, or older burnout/hippie dudes, or a good sampling of each.

Sooo ... one thing I've learned from the broadcasts is that Emporia, KS is ...
The Disc Golf Capitol of the World!!

At least that is how it is portrayed in the Emporia promo video.

Now, I've never been to Emporia (been to Wichita and all the way out to Garden City), but I know DD is there, they've got a few 4.0 rated courses and have a big party every year for the DDO. But, Disc Golf Capitol of the World?

I don't recall getting a chance to vote on this! I went back to the UDisc Ranking of Top 50 Disc Golf Metro areas, and didn't see Emporia anywhere on the list.

Was anyone else surprised to hear that in their promo video? (I did FF thru most of the non-DG commercials, but thought I would listen to that one.)

Surprised ballgolfpervert hasn't chimed back in to poop on this dollar amount as well. Him and his Dad seem to relish any chance to diminish the game.

Appling, GA more likely Disc Golf Capitol with the International Disc Golf Center and HQ for PDGA Global plus 3 top courses for a population of 771 (2017).

I can't knock the Appling/Augusta recommendation, but when I heard Emporia's/DD's claim, my initial thought was...
I bet Charlotte's got something to say about that.

Looks like Emporia has four 18 hole courses rated around 4 stars on DGCR. One of them being the country club which isn’t exactly a destination course in my opinion. Pretty good for a little town in the middle of nowhere but yeah, nothing compared to Charlotte or even Atlanta.
