Next time you go to the mini bring a couple joints everyone will want to be your friend.

I think the average disc golfer is much more friendly than you make them out to be. However, that could just be because I'm in Charlotte, and I think the average Charlottean is more friendly than most people in other regions I have been in.

Everyone seems real nice around here but I've been playing around here for a long time. The only douchebags around here are the jock type chukers(usually shirtless). They usually lose a disc on every hole and do a lot of yelling.

Yeah I'm a bit farther North and West of you in the Unifour area but I've played in the block between Asheville, Charlotte, Ashe, and Statesville and most you meet are pretty good people. I was really surprised once I got involved around here how much of a DIY sport this is and how many try to do tournaments for charity, and will volunteer their own time and money to make things happen.

Double R.

To be fair, the only times I've been there for a mini was the first time I went, before I was a member, mainly cause I was scoping things out. The second time was the mini I played, where the reception was ho hum.

I once played with a few guys from the club just as a facebook meetup, and that was definitely the best experience I had. I've tried to get something else going on facebook, but it hasn't worked out yet.


I was in China for a couple weeks recently, so unfortunately I missed Texas States, which I think would have been a good opportunity to meet people in a more casual setting.

I turned down a toke and was asked if I was a cop too. I said I was L7 and the guy got real upset, I guess he thought it was a precinct number. LOL! I play with friends cause I enjoy to play. I watch YouTube vids and practice, a LOT! Occasionally I will play a flip up or a tourney and have fun, but all in all I play with my crew cause I want to enjoy myself. Get good on your own with practice, you don't need someone better than you coaching you. Research on-line and try it yourself. It all comes down to what works for you! That and practice, practice, practice!

Or did I miss the point of this thread entirely?

alot of times common sense is not used by new/causual disc golfers. generally
i play solo rounds and undoubtibly will catch up to a group of newbees who will skip holes, throw from out if bounds/in the water hazard, conrigate at the basket after completing hole, and shoot multiple shots without recognizing that there are other people behind or ahead off them. this gets quite frustating. course etticute should be the first thing you learn and will make everyones round much more enjoyable.
