Disc Golf Survey

The Pro Disc Golf Association recently surveyed over 4,000 disc golfers.

Here are the sometimes shocking results of that survey.

Highlights include:
  1. 53 of the 4,000 disc golfers claimed to make over $250,000 per year.
  2. Only 8.1% of respondents said they were unemployed.
  3. The 3 most popular soft drinks among disc golfers are Coke, Dr. Pepper, and Mountain Dew. Only 16.4% said they consumed Pepsi most often.
  4. Subway won in the fast food restaurant category with a whopping 51.5% of respondents saying they have eaten there most often.
  5. In the mid-market chain restaurant category the amazing winner was Applebee's with a 28.0% response ratio.
  6. Major League Baseball was the winner in the pro sport event attendance category with 49.7% of disc golfers saying they had been to a MLB game in 2010.
  7. 331 disc golfers claim to have been playing the sport for more than 25 years.
  8. 19.0% of respondents claimed to own over 200 discs.
  9. 42% of respondents say they would pay $4 to $6 to play at a really nice pay to play disc golf course.
  10. 86.6% of those surveyed own a computer.
This survey is likely to change the course of disc golf history for years to come (no exaggeration).
