The worst is promising one item in a player pack and then replacing with another cheaper item. Was suppose to get a dri fit shirt last tourney and got a towel instead. I would have played either way, but now i think the TD is a bit cheesy.

And stop stamping the logo's on the side of the disc. None of mine with an offset stamp fly like they should.

As far as pros, when you get a quality pro field, run a pro-am the day before. Put some of those proceeds into paying player appearance fees and boosting the purses.
Lol!!

NOOOOOO thank you. I have zero interest in my AM money going to pro purses.

Am divisions should be trophy only imo.
I think script payouts benefit the manufacturers not the am players.
Its rigged.

The players themselves might disagree.

They enjoy competing no matter what the prize and they don't really complain about where their money goes...

Do you think living in our state, which (is?) exclusively private courses that are P2P has anything to do with it? $5 minimum to go anywhere, with others creeping up higher. My local course went from $5 to $6 this year, and it's $10 for the weekly league. You run a $15 AM entry tournament? That sounds great to me. $5 more for the experience of a tournament? Worth it. (Finding the time is the limiting factor for me).

Three Putt and Biscoe were discussing about on public or private courses - but they both probably live in areas where players are used to playing for free in those parks, so they might be more stingy when it comes to paying anything than we are? What about players that live around Maple Hill, a $15 entry would be a discount! So maybe it's all relative. For the record, I have not yet played in the MPT.

I would gladly pay $100 to play a pro-am with a chance to draw Macbeth or similar as a partner for the round.

Interesting. I would not pay anything to play with any pro. Seems weird to me. I have always had a hard time looking up to people based on a particular skill. I respect their talent, but would rather play a tournament with folks in my skill set or friends in a casual round.

I bet I am in the minority though. I started a new thread and poll.

Why would you get a big check for $205?

In the DC area, Maryland/Virginia public parks range anywhere from $3 to $10 entrances fees in the spring to fall on the weekends. And some of the public parks charge a $2 per day disc golf fee year around or $20 per year.

Each public park system seems to handle fees a little bit differently.

Thanks for the info, I've played a course in Indiana where I paid $3 at a gate to drive in, and the course was just part of the park (or whatever else I wanted to do there).
