Default Walked off the course

So I did something today I never thought I would do in disc golf.....Walked off a course without finishing my round. I was so frustrated with the course that I just gave up and said "This is't fun. I'm going to go play somewhere that is" I was playing decently. Nothing to bad or anything. Just the underbrush at this course (It was the first time I had played this course) was so thick that it was miserable trying to find and then throw from missed shots. So this got me thinking.....

What are some of the reasons that you have walked off a course without finishing your round? And how far did you get in that round before you gave up? I made it 9 holes then bailed on the back 9.

I dislocated my shoulder on hole 2 once. However, I was able to reduce it myself right there and I walked the rest of the course with the group so they could still get their round in.

Played a course when I was on vacation in San Luis Obispo (Laguna Lake, I think). I only had two hours before I had to meet my fiancee (who was at a seminar of some sort). I figured that would be plenty of time to sneak in 18! No such luck, I was struggling and spent so much time looking for wayward discs in the high grass, I only made it to the 12th or 13th hole before my two hour window was up and I had to leave

A ton of on call. (Sometimes it costs a walk off fine / cash forfeit in group play )

Others more than 3 times for me cutting out on a planned 18;
Lightening
Fatigue / heated out
Course conditions too poor (mud mostly)
Tension within a group and I bail
Partner needed to go, left when they did
Join up at another course
Got dark
Got hungry

I have yet to DNF. I am stubborn hahaha. I'd rather get pelted with hail than DNF.

Laguna is less than wesome. If you're ever in the area again play Heilmann park in Atascadero or Waller Park in Santa Maria. Castoro Cellars is fun too, and you get a wine tasting with your 5 buck round fee.

Only time I've walked/hobbled off is when I sprained an ankle.

Walked off a couple of times, but the worst was when my brother got heat stroke. We could have potentially lost him that day, so it's pretty scary looking back on that round.

Walked off of Waterworks in KC the first time. My friends and I struggled so much with navigation that we ran out of time with only about half played, and not a consecutive "half" as we never found 2, and skipped from 9 to 18 (or something like that).

When I felt symptoms of heat exhaustion coming on and there wasn't a known water source for miles. I did go back and finish.

I will walk off anytime it starts raining. Golfing in the rain is miserable. Life is too short.
