(Yes, they are in St. Louis) Don't get me wrong (or storm my castle with torches and pitchforks), I don't want the benches decorated with cock and balls either, but there is a certain charm to tags. Admittedly, as a young and burgeoning sport, we don't the Jones family coming out to the local park and discovering via sharpie message on the bench that this IS, in fact, the POT SPOT. So officially, I hereby condemn graffiti. But if ever I have the means to build a private course (never happen, but hey, I can dream), there will most certainly be a plank on every tee post for the recording of aces, and I will encourage sharpie art on my benches. Say what you want. Good graffiti is art. But yeah, in a public park keep your sharpie in your pants.
I agree, it's just that people get carried away. "If some is good, more is better." It's not.

Sorry 5 min monster kept me from completing my thought:

I agree, it's just that people get carried away. "If some is good, more is better." It's not.
Starts out cute, then spreads to every hole, and soon, every course... And waaaaayyyy more often that not, it's not cute or artistic, it's just raunchy, stupid, or in many cases, intended to incite or offend. Just so some A-hole can leave their mark, impress their friends, or just plain got bored.

So where do we draw the line? I draw it at "If you can't leave it as nice as it was when you got there, then don't do it."

Artists should only work on canvases they themselves own.
