I understand the necessity for some people who feel that it is funny degrade others, whether it is good natured ribbing of someone who just had a bad shot or it is a serious insult because you want the course to yourself and are pissed that people of lesser ability are playing.

But is it really that difficult to call the tees what they are? Shorts and longs? You can then apply what you feel about who throw from them if you feel the need to say anything at all.

You are going to find that the less you piss people off (intentional or not), the less likely a disc will be flying at the back of your head when you are putting.

It makes no difference what they are called. They are still there and are still played by those who wish to play them. I enjoy our courses having both 'Pro' and 'Am' tees and alternate play from both sets throughout each week.

However if the two tees are on the same line to the basket and change the distance by very little we shall call them 'extra' or 'pointless' tees.

I don't care what the tees are called. Now if the tee sign said Amatuer Frolf Tee... that'd be a different story.

Around here all of the women I know that play, and that's quite a few, my wife included, call them the ladies tees. No one ever gets offended.

Seems to me far too many people get offended over far too little.

Some people are just offended to be offended. Check out this poll. 2 people are highly offended over something being called Amateur tees. Yea, OK. It seems like there are about 3 million causes to get behind before I even consider what a layout on a disc golf course is called. I think its sad that these few people actually give it enough thought to be offended.

If you get so mad you are going to throw a disc at someone because the tee you threw from was called the "Amateur" tee...lol... you probably need some help. You can barely do anything in life without (SOMEONE) being offended.

I'm offended they are called tee pads...I prefer aye or bee pads. And greens? I prefer browns, no offense.

No one was degrading anyone by calling a shorter tee pad the Amateur layout.
