Interestingly, my post has been viewed 146 times with only 3 replies (a mere 2% interest level and one positive). That low of a level would certainly not support a business case. I will check out Tupelo as you suggest. I am deflated at this point.
Don't expect widespread commentary or general positve responses to the commentary that you do receive. Most commentary will be critical on the ole' DGBB. Take the commentary for what its worth (very little) and continue on with your plans.
If you truly want to propose a lighted disc golf course in Duluth then by all means research fly 18 courses, tupelo bay and any other DGC that are on ball golf courses/golf courses with lights. Take your time doing the reserch and gain only the main facts that are pertentint to your goal (ex. The sport of disc golf experiences a growth of approx. 12% in terms of players/new courses every year...) Once you have some basic facts than do an initial proposal at your place of interest (that way you can see if they would even be interested in disc golf before you invest large amounts of time coming up with a formal proposal). Paint with broad strokes and be fact based, but try to use only the facts that you feel are most important (ex. maintence of a disc golf course on a ball golf course is nominal, disc golf is an added revenue).
Check the demographics that the PDGA provides every year on their website-its valuable information that can be used anytime when proposing disc golf. Calculate how many new courses have been established in the U.S. and GA. in the past 10 years, 5 years, 3 years, 2 years etc...(Use the History lessons with Wade topic under Atlanta Gossip as a starting point for local courses, and dont forget the most recent courses when conducting your research!)
If the initial proposal goes well then run with that baby. I will tell you that if you get that far then the large amount of work will be on your shoulders.
If there was a lighted course in Duluth I would play (but not that much because Duluth is easily an hour away from me
Johnson! Keep an eye on that Kherplakistan situation...
