Disc Golf Vending Machine
May 05, 2013 04:56PM
Recently a new company that builds disc golf vending machines launched its first machine in Miami:

How cool is that? Pretty cool if you ask me. You can buy a disc on the first tee with a credit card and away you go.

Check out Teeboxx's impressive website if you want to learn more:

Why didn't we think of that? :)

That is pretty cool stuff indeed! It would be cooler if they sold the machines, instead of placing them and offering a small percentage of the sales back to the park they are dropped off in. Sale the machines and offer servicing fees to keep them in service. But let the park that purchased the machine keep most of the profits. I think they would still make a killing doing business this way instead of the plan they have now.

Why build the machines only to have others keep most of the profits. That seems very counter-productive to me.

it better be near indestructible though - lot more money in one of those than a candy or drink machine

I know it is sad, but if people will steal baskets, it is only a matter of time...

It says they are damage-proof, and don't take cash. Only credit/debit cards and cellphone payments, so there ain't no cash for theives to steal.

Smash-proof triple-pane glass window

Remote lockdown system

You can also add on a web cam they said.

Also the standard maintenance package includes "72-hour response to vandalism repair and clean up".

I would still fear someone taking the entire boxx with club/personal inventory in there.

My only thing would be picking a weight? It's not like a candy bar where you know what your getting.

I was wondering about that. It wouldn't be a problem if it worked like a RedBox, but it looks more like a vending machine that just drops whichever item is at the front of the row.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. I guess it wouldn't be too much to put a sticker listing the weight on the front, or something like that.

Makes sense, so why is there a coin return/dispenser at the bottom right of the machine?

But I don't want a green one. I want an orange one or at least a white one. Plus, what if you get a warped one?
