Disc Golf can Produce RevenueAs disc golf grows, so do the number of “pay-to-play” courses. Disc golf courses can generate revenue in several ways.
“Pay-to-play” courses receive several dollars from each player for a round or entire day’s play. Busy courses with on-site concession facilities can enjoy annual sales of over $50,000 from golf discs and accessories alone. Along with the revenue, a “pay-to-play” format generates many other advantages for the player and the course operator. The regular presence of a course pro to answer questions and explain the sport greatly aids the growth of disc golf at a new facility. Tournaments and leagues draw attention to a new course, and are another source of revenue.
