The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
In our store, a frequent topic of conversation is the great value that disc golf provides. Low equipment cost, free to play at just about every course, etc. I've been thinking about this for a while, and I'd like to hear you opinions. Is there a less expensive sport than Disc Golf?
Obviously, you can paint a lot of scenarios about ways to spend money on a given endeavor, and lots of devout disc golfers spend a lot on the sport over time. However, I'm thinking of this in terms of the funds necessary to purchase a decent set of discs (say 5-7 discs) and a bag, and play 3-times a week. Essentially the equipment and costs (greens fees, etc.) required to start the sport, play it semi-frequently, and gain proficiency at it.
Let's take Bowling, for example. While most folks don't buy their own ball or shoes right off the bat, simply playing three times a week (without any beverages or snacks) would run you at least $25 a week, or $100 for just the first month. That's more expensive in my book...
