Default Guy with Hatchet is Ruining our local courses..SMH

Just posted on our local FB Disc golf page:

'Soooo, yesterday was a new experience on the course for me. As I was playing, I witnessed a young man , dark hair, carrying a blue lat64 bag and what I thought was a hatchet with him while playing disc golf. I tried to rationalize in my head what he would be needing a hatchet for, but to no avail. Unfortunately, he demonstrated why he was carrying as I walked up to 7's tee pad and witnessed him wailing on one of the newly planted trees in 7's fairway. Due to lack of restraint, my immediate response to this was to yell at him "hey dip$!*^, f@#$ing quit that!!! This is the epitome of why dg has a bad rap. If you see anyone , including this dipstick, destroying our course, be sure to speak up.'

Being that I am on the ACDGC board, I feel like it's part of my job to make sure this stops. My question is how would you handle this and what can we do in the future to prevent course vandalism?

It was another club member that posted this.

I would assume he had Tourney plastic on the handle.

Never mess with a guy with a hatchet in his hand, no matter what the plastic.

Actually, you call the police. It's vandalism pure and simple. Let the police deal with him.

I would never confront anyone with a sharp blunt object in their hand, seems to be asking for trouble.

If you are carrying a lat64 tourney bag i assume you aren't a casual player and know better. like others have said let popo take care of that.

Yup, call the police. I would simply tell them there is a guy with a hatchet running around the park.
Take pics. This is a great deterrent today. If you run across someone penning their signature penis renderings onto a picnic table, take a pic and tell him to stop the asinine behavior. Then post the DB's pic on social media for everyone to keep an eye on him.

lol, if that's the case than please forgive me as I've thrown many a hatchets at trees


Seriously though, dunno what I would have done. I think you did the right thing, but I am a little more cautious when a weapon is involved. I don't want to get injured or be forced to bludgeon someone to death with their own weapon. Never know what's going or not going through someones mind. I would have assessed the situation and probably asked him if everything was alright, acted as if I was concerned for him and less about the tree or the weapon. If things got out of control or he did considerable amount of damage I would have gladly called the police and let them handle it.
