ESPN baby....TV coverage, and we gotta get the young ones involved and away from their TV's and video games...this is the greatest sport ever...Also more courses and less mini malls
This talk has been going on what seems forever.
Disc golf does not have an audience OUTSIDE disc golf, no one else but disc golfers are interested.
Why would ESPN put in on TV?
How would they make any money off of it?
Be realistic.
How many spectators are at disc golf tournaments? Now. One, two?
It is going to take more disc golfers, to make disc golf grow.

But once, you get discs, you want a basket to practice putts in

AND then you want more gear
hey now,perhaps a general info video for the Parks/Rec depts to watch and understand.Economic spending for many parks have been stopped or dwindled down to only the basic coverage,maintenance,etc.The larger baseball,soccor,etc leagues are funded/better understood in general.Talk to someone about disc golf in the parks and they look at you as if you

Improvement of the courses that already exist vs. installing new ones and ending up with two bad neglected courses that no one plays.
More quality courses for sure. Give them a place to play.
everyone taking care of your own trash.
Courses, more courses.

The Atlanta area for one, would benefit from more courses.

(my 2 cents)
beer caddies; the other golf get them
great post Audi, excellent call. We need to start thinking about how (whenever we get a chance) to ensure that whatever public exposure we get, its positive. If its as simple as giving new people on the course a map of the layout, or inviting them to play a round with your group, it all helps. If its advertising or media exposure, we need the positive spin to get people interested. Looking after our courses and getting youth involved are both very important as well, as members of the public will judge the sport based on what they see and hear the players getting up to. If you're passionate about this great game, donate your time and/or money towards improving it in your local area. Form a club, sell some discs at your local course or school, or volunteer to help out with course maintenance. This sort of stuff doesnt need to cost money, maybe just a couple hours of your time. Of course, if you are able to afford it, join the PDGA and your local club, and maybe even donate some money to sponsor a hole? I've just come back from holidays at a small country town, where they previously had a nine-hole ball golf course. They decided that they would like to install a back nine, so they made a proposal to council and got together a group of golfers who had the skills and expertise to design and install the back nine. The process took years to complete, but they now have 18 holes and also a very nice-looking clubhouse to show for their efforts. This is the sort of commitment we need in disc golf, but everyone's contribution helps.
