Sleepy Hollow opened a pay to play last Summer in Des Moines. They simply photocopied my driver's license and used the picture off of it to create a small card that they laminated. I had to show it each time I played - where a daily player would pay, and then we would both get the day pass tags (paper wrist bands, which they would have us attach to our disc golf bags to indicate that we had checked in that day.
I agree, if your day pass is only going to be $3, you might want to think about pricing the season pass a little more competitively. That way, when guys come up from CR, you'll collect more from them. As stated, an out of towner (which most players will be) would have to get 25 rounds in there to make it worth that price. Sleepy Hollow charged $20 for the year, which I thought was a bit cheap - but darn near everybody paid the $20, rather than paying each time, so it generated some capital pretty quickly. I think he could've done $30 and had close to the same results.
For a course like this, where it's not in a metropolitan area, a high season pass price will deter people from purchasing it. I would suggest a pricing point somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 or 3x a month at the daily rate, somewhere between $25 and $40, and I think you would sell a lot of season passes. The advantage of selling the season passes too, is that people feel more inclined to come back, as they have paid to do so. If you have other items for sale - discs, drinks, bait for fishing, etc. people are going to buy that stuff, so you want them coming back.
Just my two cents - I hope that the venture is successful. I usually drive through Shellsburg on the way to Wildcat Bluff, so I'll definately be checking you out this year.
