I have a visual C# 2005 winform project. I would like to store golfer handicap and stats. Approx 50 records per round per golf. I would like to keep everything internal to the project so that I can run it without an internet connection. I am looking for suggestions on the best way to store this information inside the project.

XML
CSV or other text files
serialization of objects
local data base (e.g. Access)
