When you're ready to buy the property, I have160 acres 7 miles north of Aitkin. Mostly flat. It's the farm my dad grew up on and came to him in his inheritance. Will be passed on to me one day. I can say once my parents pass, i cant see spending a lot of time in Minnesota....no more than a couple of weeks a year.

Even in Minnesota, I think disc golf (outdoors) year-round isn't a big deal. This year was tough...as we got a fair amount of ice before we got our snow pack. But even then, you just throw more with your upper body (no X-step) and/or move the tee over to a spot with no ice for the Winter.

That said, it does get really old/tiring having to worry about injuring an ankle/knee on every tee shot. I'd love to play indoors at least once to say I did it. But as a business model? I think someone would eventually be filing bankruptcy if they ever gave it a serious try. As even in Minnesota, nobody'd play it between March and October/November. Steve West's event idea though is gold. Rent a place like Metrodome once a year between December and February, and you'll get your participants. Without tens/hundreds of thousands in overhead/mortgages for your trouble.

Would a large tent (think circus or revivals) be cheaper than an actual building?

Now that the circus is shutting down for good this spring, they'll probably have some used tents available to buy or rent.

Apparently someone is building an indoor 18 hole tiki course with some other activities in Lancaster PA, supposed to open in spring.
