First suspicion would be that the TD has no means to receive online payments (no paypal, etc). Of course, that wouldn't prevent him from using a service that handles transactions and sends him a...

Mostly in groups, usually closed ones where you have to request to be a part of it. If you search for Disc Golf Dollar Auctions, that's a good place to start. There are other groups that are a bit...

Aim has it right for marking the tree...an arrow or something brightly colored that stands out well against the tree. Place it as high as is reasonable so it is easily seen but not so easily...

Let me be clear. Simple, basic and easy does not equate to bad design. Courses for which technology has passed it by (Winton being a great example of that...it was designed for frisbees, not golf...

Casual round...count it if you want to. You can play by your own rules in that case.

The PDGA directory is updated the same way as the one here is updated. Courses have to be reported to be listed. So if a course is listed here but not at PDGA.com, that's because whoever listed it...

It's not that the line doesn't matter, it's simply that it can't be considered official. Personally, I appreciate every TD that makes the effort to mark the circles. It is a great reference point for...

If Feldberg was correct, which he absolutely is not, that would mean that if you left your disc in lieu of using a marker, it would be legal to step on it during your throw. I think we all know that...

The thing is, instinct doesn't really matter. There's no "correct" way to play it unless the TD or whoever painted the line makes it 100% clear where the 10m mark is with respect to the line (outside...

It would depend on whether 10m is outside the paint, inside the paint, or in the middle of the paint...which is the question in the OP.

Bottom line though, the paint is irrelevant since it's not...

Wrong. Your position is determined by the rear edge of the marker. If you leave the thrown disc on the ground, then that is the marker so it is the rear edge of the disc.

So if your disc is...

There's no standard for how to mark the circle since it's not standard to mark the circle at all (i.e you won't find it in any rule book). So the answer lies with whoever made the mark as far as the...

That's often the case with tee time events, and it's easy to execute because that tent/office/area is usually near the last green. I have my doubts that it is still the policy though, but that's...
