Anyone ever not have anyone else to play with?

Just curious to see if it's me. I try to get people up for rounds, but no luck. I know a bunch of people, but still nothing. I've asked if it's me, if I smell, whatever. Everyone says, "No, there's nothing wrong with you...yada yada yada."

Just want to see if anyone else experiences this.

Daniel

go down to the course and play solo.
this allows you to throw and experiment.

or

you can meet new people to play with.

it's not always as bad as it seems.

It was how/why the sport was invented, Steady Ed didn't have anyone to throw Frisbee with so he started playing frisbee golf.

Thanks, dj.

I do. Problem is that when I do see people I know on the course, they offer to let me play through and not join in. I've asked before to join in, only to be told no, they're either 1) too big of a group (5-some); or 2) they're playing dubs (non-tourney) and I'd be the odd man out.

I experiment on the course a lot, which has allowed me to increase my game. I've asked local pros to help in certain areas where I need help and was told sure but never received the help. (I was told, "we'll do it later...")

It may seem like I'm being dramatic about it, but I don't think so. I don't partake in certain activities, so maybe that's what has kept me on the outs. Who knows. Whatever it is, it sucks.

Now that's interesting about Steady Ed. I didn't know that one...

There are lots of times when my dog is the only one who wants to go to the course with me, but I don't mind some time to have the course to myself and work on my game.

Up in SF I don't know that many people yet so I usually trek out to the course alone. Though I hate speaking in generalities, one of the cool things about disc golf is the people who play are generally chill. Even though I go out alone most of the time, there's usually a group which invites me to play the round with them. You get to meet some interesting people that way.

sorry to hear that man. It might just be your area of the country. Different places have different vibes, when I'm home in Louisiana there's less of a comraderie on my home course unless it's one of the people from the BRDGA. I'm trying to figure out why the southern hospitality doesn't extend to the course...but some people...

For instance, two days ago my brother and I were playing the long tees at Highland Road Park. Now nobody plays the long tees, and only about 13 of the 18 are still there. Regardless, we're teeing off on hole 1 and just as we get done throwing and start walking this guy walks up to the regular tees and throws a shot. He watched us throw on the hole, and without breaking a stride starts playing. He doesn't say a word to us. I'm lining up my 2nd throw and he walks right in front of me up to his disc and proceeds to finish the hole and walk off, again the whole time not saying a word.

We eventually passed him again though, because he threw his disc into a creek and went swimming for it, so justice was served.

Long story short, I feel for ya man. Hope you find a cool group to disc with.

I will go by myself occasionally, but up here in Wisconsin most folks are pretty friendly & will ask to join you or let you join up with them. It's always cool to meet new folks on the course.

Thanks, I appreciate it. I kinda wish I could throw a round or two with some people from here. Seem to be a lot less clique-ish than people here. I thought high school was 20 years ago...maybe not...

dont sweat it... playing solo for me is more relaxing and i can play at my own pace. the more people i play with in a group, the slower the pace. i like to turn and burn , throw and go, more holes to be played that way. if you want to play with people, play your local tourneys, meet folks. the more people you meet and get to know, the easier it will be. dont worry about it too much, just play and have fun
