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.

What is the prefered way?

I messed around with SQL compact but I am not sure this would satisfy what I am doing.

- required restore time
- budget and time of software development

- ...
all the things depending on a data storage solution
