Disc golf vending machine opens at Omaha park

Omaha disc golfers will soon be able to purchase gear at a local course thanks to a new company founded here.

Omaha's first TeeBoxx, a vending machine that will allow disc golf players to purchase discs onsite, will launch at 2 p.m. Friday at Seymour Smith Park, 68th and Harrison Streets. It will be located between the park's first hole and the parking lot.

The company, which was started by Omahan Aaron Martin, installed its first auto-pay machine in a park in Miami, Fla., in March, Martin said. The company shares revenue from the machines with the parks they are in.

The TeeBoxx at Seymour Smith is stocked with discs from manufacturers like Innova and Discraft that can be purchased on the spot by players with a credit or debit card.

Martin said the course at Seymour Smith sees 300 to 400 players a day, and that the company's business model is to provide infrastructure for the sport at high-traffic courses.

“We're thrilled to do this here, on our home course,” Martin said.
