Default Every course is a pay to play...

Either everyone in the tax base is paying for pubic courses, or you pay individually for private courses, but I think all of us are attracted to disc golf as being "free". Free disc golf is a misnomer.

DP = Direct Pay
IP = Indirect Pay (your taxes)
OP = Others Pay (taxes)

What if you don't pay taxes? Can you still get into these pubic courses? They sound interesting.

Nothing's free, or if it is, you get what the price is worth. Lots of nice things don't cost money though.

I wonder what percentage of the disc golf population understands the fact that disc golf is not free...

I wonder if you are trying to make a non-landfill worthy significant point?

Disc golfers are cheap, but I get OP's point. However, an IP course is there whether or not you use it...so...

I hope most of us. A small effort like picking up sticks during your round makes a huge difference if everyone does it.
