The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
For around $20 you can get 3 DX discs. That is not too bad to start out with. Can you buy a baseball glove for that? No. Can you buy a basketball for that? Maybe. For $20 you cannot get into any other sport so it is not that bad. People do not Star or ESP discs to start out with.

How do we make nice courses when everything costs so much?
And how do you attract kids to the sport? They can't really afford it unless their parents give them money
Sure, we can attract some adults to the sport..But its some 60 year old guy really gonna be the nixt climo or doss?
Bring in the young kids, and they'll bring their friends.
It will all start with building the courses, as mark said.
UNITY! Nothing ever happens over night. You just have to stick with it. And never forget the small things. i.e. When you're playing a casual round with your friends and you see casual/beginner golfers attempting to play, ask them to join you, even if it's a couple of holes. The best advertising is word of mouth. The TV stuff ESPN that will eventually come. Growth is what will help make this sport even better. I have come to find that the more a beginner finds out about the sport the more they get hooked. I am not talking about just walking up to someone and rattling off every flight to ever disc known to golf. Just being genuine.
