At my local pay to play course there are approximately 15 people employed. You are forgetting grounds keepers and security guards, besides the 5 pro shop attendants. That in itself is a good stimulus for the economy, Creation Of Jobs.
Well the silver lining would be that any publicity is good publicity.
I haven't gone online to look at stimulus items yet. But I just got another alert of another "Frisbee Golf Course," proposed in Florida(?) that someone is whining (in a letter to the editor) about. It looks like the uneducated public is now equating DG courses with pork. IE it doesn't increase jobs. Which I tend to agree with. I'm not a big fan of creating any spending that doesn't increase jobs.. and true enough, DG courses do not seem to pass the smell test on creating jobs. On the other hand.. of course I am all for it if it is going to be part of a bad bill. IMO, a bad bill is made a little bit better with every DG course it helps to make.
Anyway, there seems to be one or two of these critics popping up in papers every day across the country.

What silver lining can we make from all this stink? Anyone have any ideas?
