^^Only if you also dump trash everywhere, scribble sharpie all over the tee signs and baskets, and generally skulk around like you don't even want to be there.

There's the age old question: How do we make the sport grow? I'm sure that this thread and the people posting in it are not helping.

Chuckers - Dudes that just keep throwing discs. Could be alone with you behind him the last 6 holes, doesn't matter. He just keeps chucking one disc after another and has to putt from every approach. These guys are often drunk/high and completely oblivious to the rest of the world.

Hacks - Dedicated disc golfers that look like serious players to the untrained eye but would be murdered by any actually good discers. I'm a hack as is most of DGCR.
Hi Everyone,

In Georgia we call them Barney for single players and Barnies if they're in groups.

My problem is the families that have no respect for the game or anyone else around them. They throw while you're still playing the hole (luckily they only throw their Bosses about 150 feet) they try to play the course during big tournaments, they are loud, etc. Etc.

A majority of other sports don't have to deal with those kind of behaviors.

Had 1 single guy in front of my group of 4 the other week. He playing 3 discs at the same time like he was a group of 3 while talking on his cell phone the whole time. Are you serious?

Throw disc 1, throw disc 2, throw disc 3. Go to disc 1...blah,blah,blah on the cell, pick up the disc with one hand and casually toss it at the basket. Go find disc 2 and repeat. I couldn't believe it.

After a few choice words from someone in our group he jumped over to a hole way in front of us.

I dont mean to come off as a jerk here. But come on, man up to it and do something to change it. Introduce yourself and explain the flow of the game and invite them to a casual league or doubles night. Explain some things that they dont know and how they can affect other people that might be out on the course with them. Why is it that people just want to cry and get mad about certain things but then never do anything to change them? Understand that people play the game for different reasons and thats ok. The courses are in public parks, not your private property. Everybody has a right to be there, man up and do something about it. As long as you are pleasant than people will be receptive. I thought disc golf wasn't supposed to be elitist? jesus christ.....
