Reminds me of this group of about 7 or so who were so loud and obnoxious. At every basket they would sit for about ten minutes, set their cooler down and drink a few beers. Also during the whole time they would be hitting chains and doing like 2 foot putts. Really annoying. Ended up skipping ahead of them. We skipped them on hole 9, and by the time we got to 17 they were only on 11. Lmao.

Anyways, I just ignore it and chill.

I just skip a hole or two or restart from 1 to give me enough space. Or you could just beat the **** out of them, take there discs and never play there again!!

That said, I try to be respectful when other groups are around and can't stand the things you mentioned, but what about the tools that don't "clear"? Having to walk off the tee, up and around a big dogleg just to see if anybody's still putting only to find... NOTHING... is a pain in the ass.

I never heard of anyone doing this until I played with an older gentleman a while back. After every basket he yelled "clear". I thought it was kind of funny until I figured out why he was doing that. Now if I play a course with blind baskets I will yell "clear" and the basket number when done.

If I am playing solo then I definitely would skip ahead. If I am with a group I would probably just relax and wait unless it got really ridiculous, then we would probably ask to play through. I have never had a group refuse to allow me to play through when asked.

This is always an option. I think it would depend on the type of plastic they were throwing. If they are just throwing DX it probably isn't worth the trouble. jk

So you are saying if you are going to be loud and obnoxious play with DX Discs.
JK.... I have found on my local courses it isn't too bad people are fairly mellow. I might also be because I like to play early morning as well.

I guess if you've never heard of it it wouldn't be an issue, the guys I started with always "cleared" when you couldn't see the basket from the tee so I picked it up early.

When I run into this I'll either just skip ahead or if no one's behind me I'll practice putt for a while till the INCONSIDERATE, SELF CENTERED, LOW LIFE, JERKS are out of sight. (Had to vent a little. I'm gonna go shoot the neighbor's cat now.)
