Default how much for a pay to play?

What/s a reasonable amount per round for a pay to play for a disc golf course on a par 3 ball golf course?

first time posting a poll hope it works.

Most of the time you see a fee for all day rather than per round since it's simpler to manage.

All day pass is easier to manage and a reasonable charge is up to $10 for the day, maybe $6 for a round. Some people will gripe about this amount since most courses are free.

Some pay to play places also have season passes which would be good for locals.

It'd be nice to have a cart rental for a fee.

I'd say $2 round and $5 for the day sounds legit

Depends. Phantom Falls asks for a $20 "donation", but you get an amazing course to yourself for the day, personalized service, and a beer. Sounds like a steal to me.

Generally, I won't gripe about a couple bucks to play any course. I look at it as a bonus when it's free. Which is almost always.

As for a "ball golf quality" course, we have one here (Widener Park) and are fortunate that the local club keeps it in great shape for free. If they didn't, I wouldn't mind payin' a few dollars to play, though.

I guess it really boils down to whether the course is worth it. If I have to play and it's ratty... No thanks. If it looks like the money goes towards the course... Sure.

I'd gladly pay up to $10 for a day, assuming its a quality course.

I should mention i come from a land where public dg courses are scarce...

This is a course in development where they are adding to an established ball golf course. They know about "mostly" free disc golf courses but since ball golfers pay and staff is there - why not charge discers? Just trying to give them some guidance since ball golf price is too much.

I think $5 is fine, but if it's more than that, it really be a special course...with amenities.

Considering the pay to play courses at Circle R ranch. Two of the best layouts designed by one of the best course designers in the world is $5 for the day. I would have to say not much more than $5 unless you provide a lot more than just golf and a few discs.

It also depends on what type of tee pads, baskets, and how many holes.

If you use dirt, single chain Db5's, and its less than 18 holes. I would say nothing is worth paying to play that. Substitute Decent double chains and 18 holes easy $5 for me to spend. Add nice concrete tees and im ok paying $10 for the day, but im not going to play more than once a month.
