Night discing at a city park.

I have been playing glow rounds at a small park near my house. Very wooded and no one around. I want to play at a course that is not so secluded. There are a few houses and the street by the park gets decent traffic. So my question is. Has anyone had any problems playing after park hours?

There are 2 courses that are in raleigh and they both have lighted tennis courts. Those are both open until 11 so we usually play there. I say contact p and r regarding the hours of the parks.

When I lived in the Twin Cities and away from my family three nights a week, I would play night disc by myself at Kaposia Park all of the time just for something to do. Always felt safe because A) I kept an LED flashlight in my pocket and B) Always kept a knife in the other pocket.

I was never, ever hassled by anyone. I think I only ran into anyone once or twice.

I had a friend who gave me a lot of crap about it, though.

EDIT: Read this as a "Is it safe?" post instead of "Will I get in trouble?" post.

For me? Yes and Never Did.

Paging Um...

I go out and play with him occasionally here in the SD area and haven't had any problems. You just have to be aware of your surroundings and choose the right course. Carrying a heavy flashlight doesn't hurt, either.

For what it's worth, I find night golf exponentially more fun than in the daytime.

It is really upto how much the locals and or police what to harass you. My home course was able to get some permit for night golf.

We're fortunate enough to have a park which is open until 11 every night. Besides that, I will play a couple of courses on private property, where the owners don't seem to mind. But then, I'm not out there drinking and causing a ruckus at 3am, either.

As far as personal safety, most of the time I just consider my 3 D cell maglite my club. I'm more concerned with animals than people though, honestly. I don't want Rabid Rocky Raccoon to take a chunk of my face.

hmmmm, you talking about garlough? my buddies and i have done that course a few times, if so. nobody ever bothered us. i do keep a knife on me.

i'd expect the cops to bug you more than anybody, unless you somehow angered a hobo.

Police enforcing park hours or responding to complaints of noise would probably be the biggest issue.

I have been arrested while playing frisbee golf at 2 am back in 2001. It was past park hours. Honestly it was so dark I didn't see the cops even walking up to us. We would set up a 20 million candle-power spotlight to tee off.
