If I was a young man, I would investigate a mobile disc golf shoppe.

A nice custom trailer with pop up sides for racks of discs. Nice cold drinks, snacks and dg accessories.

Drag it to the course(s) on weekends.


Thank god I'm not a young man.

Add a mail order out of your home and you have a start without the huge overhead.

Of course I can't even remember back to being a young man!

There is a guy who does this at BB Owen and a few other courses in North Dallas. Pretty good selection for a small-ish trailer, has competitive prices and takes credit cards. Can't think of the name right now, they might have an online store and a larger storage/shop but he had most of the current and classic molds available.

You don’t have to stock every manufacturer. Look at what’s popular where you are and go with those manufacturers. You can always add some others later. If Gateway and MVP aren’t really popular where you are? Then you don’t have to start of with them.

If there is anyway to set up a driving range where you’re at, that is a massive plus. Basically they can check out some Discs, and you hold onto their ID while they try it. It may not be practical where you’re at, but if you can do it, that’s something an online store can never offer.

Good luck on your new business venture! I had an idea of selling disc's out of vending machines placed at disc golf courses. Seems like there are a lot of people who's only option to buy disc's are online because there isn't a pro shop close by. I'm still looking into my idea but someone has already beat me to the punch! Day late, dollar short, my life story! lol

Something I've really appreciated is popup disc shops next to hole 1 on the weekends in the summer. Buy a lot of used discs for cheap, sell for >50% margin in bins that you lug to the aforementioned popup. Put together your own beginner sets of used discs and undercut Innova. Sell cheap drinks. Give away decals with your logo.

Also, in the way of an online presence, do something the other guys don't - if you can't beat DGC on price and free shipping, you better have what they don't. They have quite a selection, but are missing pics of each disc. If you really want to cater to the thinking disc golfer, consider a profile pic of each disc using a rig with some kind of chart in the background for comparing dome and PLH.


Anyway, I'm no business guy. But used discs at least seems like a no brainer, money that all my local shops leave on the table.

Good luck with your new store! The Brick and Mortar is an investment that the Disc Golf community i'm sure will appreciate!
