Scozzola and Jan Bartolo, Burbank's deputy parks director, said the $5,455 spent on the disc golf course is expected to pay off.
“This is a minor, minor investment for what the potential revenue outcome could be and for the advantage of having an additional use at the facility,” Scozzola said.
Disc players can play all day at the $4 rate during the week, and for $6 on the weekends.
Philo Brathwaite, a 32-year-old professional disc golfer who travels the world promoting the sport, often plays at Verdugo Hills.
At a weekly tournament there, Brathwaite talked about the pleasures of playing on a well-manicured course.
As for the business, Brathwaite said it was obvious.
“It's kind of easy money,” he said. “It's a small investment to get a pretty good return on a pretty consistent basis.”
