Title: Pay to Park
Post by: Dan Weinert on November 10, 2009, 09:46:15 AM
Remember, we will all be subject to the Park's Pay to Park concept.

$5 per day or $40 per year. ($30 if you are a clay County resident)

1 person in the car or 99...$5.

Now that being said, remember, I plan to have a big ol stack of yearly passes and you get them by logging a few volunteer hours.

Before anybody starts slamming the idea...that's how this park get mowed on a much better schedule then any park in our system. (I think)

I would gladly make that trade...any day!!!

Comments???

Lots of parks do that. Clinton Lake in Lawrence is like that. A private course would charge at least that much to play for the day, probably more like $5 a head instead of a car load. I don't see it being a problem at all.

sounds like a good system. let us know as soon as the volunteering can begin. I'd love to come and be a part of getting this course up and running :)

I WAS WRONG!!!

$5 per day or $40 per year.

I went from being minorly concerned to majorly concerned about this.

I will address this with them ASAP!

We got to have some system in place to take care of the following situations-

1. Tourneys
2. Volunteers

As much work as we are putting into this, I would hate to have this be an issue for everyone.

Stay tuned guys...more info to come as soon as it is available!

I'm sure they can work something out. I believe the pay-to-park courses in Michigan are $3/car for disc golfers, and they give them a bracelet to wear while on the course. Perhaps Smithville can adopt a similar system.

$5 isn't too much to be able to play a nice, well maintained course, and neither is $40 per year. In my proposal I was going to have a section about suggestions for tourneys, but kind of ran out of space. My idea is to work with the parks department and get them to 'waive' the parking fee for DGers (show them a disc or something) but then kick money back into the parks department, like $5 per player, which is more than they would get anyway in order to let them make money too. Or give them some sort of sponsorship option where they can really waive the fee.
Just a thought.

You could do another option that works for a few of the parks in Wisconsin.

You pay to park, but you get your tag a little differently.  You put it into a disc golf box, get your parking permit and then that money is guaranteed to go back to the disc golf course.  If you have to pay the ranger station, you simply say "I am here to play disc golf." Instead of getting the standard green parking ticket, you get a special orange one, then if your vehicle is not in the disc golf area, you still show you have paid, but it again accounts for the disc golf dollars that is a new revenue stream.

You could also ask for a discounted park permit, but I tend to agree with cooper, $40 for a year of golf if I lived in the area would be a no-brainer.  You may be able to sell some to the club, or take money the year in advance and see if you could get the park to offer a $25/disc golf permit......just sayin......

sounds like a good idea jack,but with all the FREE courses to play,it doesn't sound like you'll get alot of action at this course,i understand why "pay to play",just don't think people will play it that much when we have so many great courses in the area that are free to play
keep up the great work jack

I would think that showing you are a club member should grant you a discounted price.
Put a barcode on the back of our bag tags. Scan the tags for the $2 discount.
That would promote bag tag and club sales.
Just thinking out loud.
We can also ask the Parks and Rec. Depts. to charge at the rest of the parks and tell them the plan!!!!!!!!

I'm with Mr. Mills on this one. Sorry Dan, you know my favorite course in town also happens to be the most ghetto and roughshod, so I doubt all that fancy stuff is going to entice me to drive all the way out there and pay $5 to park. That's my food bill at the Humdinger or Mexican taco truck! :-\

Another thing: If they're charging $5 to park in their lot, does that mean the safety of our vehicles and contents is guaranteed? If my or anyone else's car is broken into in that lot, is the city of Smithville going to flip the bill to replace/repair our stuff? ???

Probably not but it will be 1,000% safer then most places we play...GUARANTEED!

Just to set the record straight...this is a County effort...NOT City! (Clay County, MO)

Not trying to tear it down, Dan, just asking the obvious questions. I know this will be a great disc golf facility when it's done, but there's no denying Mr. Mills' point and I know there are others who feel the same way. With parking, gas, and food, I'd be looking at close to $20 per trip out there for a casual round, and close to $25 if there's a league night. Ouch!

Post by: dickthediscparker on April 04, 2010, 07:21:24 AM
Yes  lets discount our rate so they don't have enough money to mow the grass or keep the facilities running.  I mean we are disc golfers the kings of the parks.  We should be sooooo special.  While the fishers and boaters and beach goers and whatnot should pay double.  YAA!  This is such a great idea you guys.  Lets not forget .  This isn't in the heart of KC here guys.  This is a new town that already is use to paying to be in this park.  They will now have more to do while in it.  It actually just makes the park worth the fee to park IMO.  Stay and play your free courses.  this one will be a pay to park.  this isn't a new concept in disc golf and it won't change for us.  What we will probably do is get the most out of the county in terms of money and put in a great complex.  And you at that point can choose the path you take.  I personally will pay 40 bucks to play there all year round and enjoy it.  I'll even let you ride in my car if you want to go and play for free.  No prob.

Dick, you sound both angry and sarcastic! Relax, dude. I know you want people paying to use this course because in your head it'll mean that people are paying their hard-earned money to play at a course that you designed! I get it, dude!

Oh, and it's "ANGLERS", not "fishers"...

Yeah, I don't appreciate "postal" and anti-police/anti-establishment comments either, but based on things I've said in the past, it seems to be what I'm thought of as by certain people, so... whatever, nothing I can do about it, so it is what it is. No matter how much good you do in life, it's often the negative attributes that people remember most. Nobody is denying your commitment to good disc golf around here, Dick, you're just fun to mess with and I get a lot of that same crap too. ;D

BTW, I can still see your post. Who cares, man, let's just keep up the good work and not get too wrapped up in each other's opinions.

Actually the comment that was made about guaranteeing your cars safety shoots down my idea of paying to park at all the parks.



The best thing about what Parks and Rec is trying to do is put the disc golfers parking money back into the course.

Is that positive enough for ya Dan??

                    Mike, I think that's where KC disc golf is going though. With umpteen courses already,KC is able to cater to all in the spectrum of golfers from casual to touring pro's! Even though you prefer CD or BV over the idea of heading up to God's country, there are still many who yearn for the complex that Dan and his design minion have proposed. Some golfers hope to elevate the sport to beyond the earthy grassroots in which it came.(ABSOLUTELY NO DISRESPECT TO THE FOUNDERS OF THIS SPORT WE LOVE) Smithville will take us to the next level even with pay to play & the next level is closer to the goal..         Dan is the man!  :D
Title: Re: Pay to Park
Post by: hyzerponix on April 04, 2010, 07:49:29 PM
Yeah, Fred, if I want to continue playing I will have to learn to adapt as the sport grows. But as someone who won't be benefitting financially from its growth, I'm rooting against said growth. I do not want to see this sport become corporate and mainstream or anything else that resembles ball golf other than strokes and pars. The only reason I want the PDGA to advertise more is because I'm tired of explaining it to people. Me, me, me, me, me, and some hard work from time to time at Cliff Drive and Down Under, that's it... :D

Post by: bensdadfred on April 04, 2010, 08:58:07 PM
               Mike,Your hard work is both appreciated and admired! I can't emphasize that enough! On another note there are and have been many folks working,for a long time to see it finally reach that arena. With over 2000 courses in the states, there is certainly enough room to accomodate the entire spectrum. And in the metro, if we just start this level at Smithville it can ONLY help us and our sport/community! I am excited to see us working for that, and excited that making moves like this in our sport will help champion disc golfers like KC who shot -21 out of 27 holes recently in Ocala, and only win $1250 at a so called NT. These guys sweat, bleed and cry disc golf all over the country in pursuit of the same passion we all share. The only way to compensate them adequately for their efforts/skill is to establish that corporate dollar you want kept away. When you saw that Matty O shot a -9 at cliff, you especially knew what he had to do to accomplish that. That wasn't a fluke, that was the culmination of raw talent, smart decisions, and years of traveling this country golfing. These guys deserve more and I personally believe that a pay to play disc golf center at Smithville is sweeeeet!! ;D

Post by: hyzerponix on April 05, 2010, 09:10:28 AM
I do understand the positives that can come from disc golf growing into the mainstream, I'm just not sure it will outweigh the negatives. From what I've witnessed in my short time on this Earth, most anything that becomes mainstream and corporate tends to be riddled with scandal and corruption. The people at the top get to profit and call all the shots, while those not at the top are at their whim. Yes, adapt to change, or get left behind, but at the same time, fail to learn from history, and you will repeat that history. All I'm saying is be careful what you wish for. What attracts people to disc golf the most, aside from the wonderful feeling of throwing a disc through the air, is the affordability of the sport. Do you really want to see the latter go by the wayside so a few select people can get rich off of it? Again, just be careful what you wish for.

Wow, you people crack me up.  Greens fees at a public ball golf course are $40 a person, and you're complaining about paying $40 a year?

Parks don't mow themselves.  Just watch what happens to Rosedale this year, and you'd be glad to pay to play if it got mowed ever 2 weeks....

If I lived near Smithville I would gladly pay, Chris, especially with the money going to maintain the course. But the one or two trips I might make out there in a year aren't worth it, so I guess I'll settle for paying $5 to park for my rounds there. I think it should be more like $3, and I would also pay that to play at the courses here in KC if it meant having a weekly mowing schedule and trash pickup. What that has to do with growing the sport, I'm not sure how we got on that topic, it seems to have more to do with taking care of what you already have.
Title: Re: Pay to Park
Post by: jack on April 05, 2010, 10:37:08 AM
at that rate ($1250 for the NT) if Kenny played 46 events, he would make over $50k this year, and be in an ok financial shape, but as the top rated player on the planet over the last 15 years, it pales in comparison to what other pro athletes make.

There is a decision, and its coming soon Mike, do we pay to have professional disc golfers or not?

Post by: Ash on April 05, 2010, 01:53:33 PM
I personally wouldn't mind seeing some pay to park/play courses around if it is a reasonable fee. $40 a year seems reasonable. I feel it would help keep some of the trash and undesirables off the course. However as you move toward this it is very possible that this could become the norm and become the end of the free to play course that we know and love now.

The only pay to play course that I regularly played is in Newport News, VA where I believe it was $1 per player (apparently $2 now or $20 a year). I believe the course was at a state park so it was one of the nicest parks I've played at.  So really I'm torn on the idea.
Title: Re: Pay to Park
Post by: Schoen-hopper on April 05, 2010, 03:39:32 PM
Pay to play is the future.  Money to keep up courses has to come from somewhere.  You can usually see the difference in quality at existing pay-to-play facilities which have funds available that are being spent on course upgrades.  I also like that this keeps away most vandals & litter bugs.  Those who support the course generally aren't contributors to those problems.

If the sport doesn't move forward it only moves backwards...  All the pro sports we are trying to make disc golf into today didn't happen overnight.  It took hard work from volunteers that care about the game to get them where they are at now.  I personally don't think that entertainers/athletes should make the money they make, nor do I think that they should have made the money they made during the early developing stages.  The one thing we need to remember is that the pay to play system isn't making the game corporate, it's just making the courses better.  If the entire KC DG scene goes to a pay to play we should then look into a KC Card that allows us to pay a yearly fee to play all the courses.  I would hate to be limited to playing a few courses because I'd have to get half a dozen "memberships" to different courses.

It will take years for us to be even close to the gallery sizes of the pga.  Our sport shouldn't even be compared to that of other's like MLB, NFL, NBA, etc. because it's not on the same level from a spectators point of view.  Fan's are the ones victimized in all of those sports, look at the cost of a single Chiefs game.  Ticket prices, parking, and concessions, you can't go to a game for less than $100.
Unfortunately the pga is the only mainstream sport that compares.  Not sure what the costs are to watch these events, but I'm sure they aren't cheap.  We need good pros to carry us to the next level, but the next level isn't going to be prime time ESPN, and it's not going to happen overnight.

Sorry for the ramble,

Good Day

It's not highly thought-of because it's boring when compared to MMA, which also features bikini-clad beauties between rounds. ;D

I don't know if disc golf needs the bikini babes, though I suppose it wouldn't hurt, but I am definitely with Danger on the music thing! I have played some of my best rounds with the iPod speakers in the bag. 8)

something disc golf could assimilate from Major League Baseball are the random tunes the keyboardist pipes out of the sound system during the game, i've noticed a lot of people in the crowd (eg gallery) kinda get into this. just saying the national anthem is a great tune to start an event, and then................maybe Tom Petty Learning to Fly, Starland Vocal Band Afternoon Delight, Judas Priest Turbo Lover, just to keep the gallery interested when somebody is taking too long to set up a shot or such.

5 Disc Golf Courses...whatever do you mean?

1. Beaver Creek - White Baskets in the ground now - (18) 10 foot circle t-pads going in soon!

2. Woodhenge-  The very next course going in...give us 8 weeks or so.

3. Black Thorn- In by the fall of 2011

4. Shoreline Drive- Play all the water holes from the first three courses

5. Camp Branch- Once the Complex Courses are done, I will turn my attention back to this course to get in 18 real baskets...with real t-pads. This is in the camping area and could be the best little hidden gem out of the bunch.

Stay tuned - Get Involved - Come see us today!

Here is the complete 2011 Fee Schedule for all things Paradise Pointe Disc Golf Complex - Smithville Lake - Smithville MO - USA. From vehicle passes, to boat rental, camping and everything in between!

Disc Golf is FREE but your vehicle will need to pay to enter the park. (No limit on the number of guys you can squeeze in!)

one thing disc golf could assimilate from professional tennis is the line judge, have some dude way up in the air in a lifeguard chair with an umbrella, calling foot faults on those annoying ambiguous jump putts, and taking mcenroe-esque abuse from hot headed pros when somebody calls em out. has anyone ever run into the basket on an eleven meter jump putt? i think so.

The Vehicle Pass Checkers started April 2nd and will continue until October or so. Here are your options to enter the park-

1. $5 per vehicle

or

2. $30 per year if you are a Clay County resident (You will need a current paid personal property tax reciept)

or

3. $40 if not a Clay County resident!

or

4. Join us for workdays coming up REAL SOON! I'll have workdays posted soon...you just need to let me know you are coming so I can get you on the list for Volunteer Entry (only valid for scheduled workdays)

Option #2 or #3 is a credit card type pass and NOT a vehicle stitcker.   It stays with the person and not the vehicle.

I am working on a handout that will be passed out when you come into the park.   This full color handout will explain the status of the courses, anticipated completion times and upcoming events, etc.

Be sure to ask for one starting this coming weekend!

Just so you know...we are hoping to get the remaining 36 baskets installed next, install temp t-pads & signs and get this place up to full speed just as soon as possible.

Once that is done, work will commence on the (18) 10 foot circle t-pads for Beaver Creek, followed shortly by the gargantuan runway sized t-pads for Woodhenge!

Come see us soon kids!!

Got my annual pass today. If you don't have your tax receipt handy they can look it up for you there.

On Sundays I will be glad to meet and carpool into the park from somewhere in Smithville.
