Hudson Mills Metropark in Dexter MI will begin to charge participants to play disc golf. The popular game which participants throw discs (smaller frisbees) into cages, must like golf. The participants who carry bags of discs (usually costing as much as a set of golf clubs for a full bag) have become accustom to paying nothing to golf.
However, as the sport has grown so has the realization of the park that they could make extra money on the golfers. The golfers will be expected to pay 2/day to golf or they can purchase and annual pass of 50. Those fees do not include entrance to the park, which range from 4 - 20/day.
Park officials deny the "money making opportunity" and instead claim that the fee will help deal with vandalism and other problems that have increased as the popularity of the sport has.
