Check with four mounds in spokane, they have 3 killer 18 hole courses that can be combined in different ways to increase the challenge. I have seen mowed fairways and trimmed trees, excellent driving range (would like to see a pro shop there but may present problems with zoning/use laws). Check with them to find out what the maintance costs associated with a current private course is. The cost of an 18 hole disc golf course is ~$18,000.00 minus the land. The cost of one hole of ball golf is ~$150k-$1mil.
I don't think the maintanance costs are so astronomical to warrant $50-$250.00 per round (or even per day) fees. I wouldn't play every day for 20.00 but I would play up to $2.00 per round if It means not having to deal with broken glass on the tee pad or arround the basket (pack it in, pack it out frolfers!)
Grow the sport, make it accessable to everyone. Public courses for those who want to drink and leave their glass bottles hanging on trees, private for people who want to play great disc golf without the danger of glass lacerations.
