It has never been just about disc sales. Disc golf is a fairly inexpensive sport compared to many other sports. Gear is not a barrier for most of us because you can enjoy one-disc rounds and most courses are free to play. Unlike most sports in which the manufacturers require the seller to have a physical store and advanced annual pre-orders, it is fairly easy for anyone to “open shop” with very little startup costs. So you’ve got to love disc golf to be in the business for the long haul. Like most people, we are motivated by personal gain. If we grow the sport, it means more players, which means more courses, which means better courses. All the better for us!
