2 years ago, my son and I were playing a round there with a local that we just met, when, all of a sudden, as we were walking up to a tee pad, a ratty looking old guy jumps up and "runs" to the tee right in front of us and throws a lame shot more or less down the fairway. We both go "WTF?" The local says "there must be a cop around." Sure enough, we look towards the parking lot and there's one cruising through. He said it happens all the time. That old dude either had good eyes or a sixth sense.

It would be funnier if the guy comes running up and throws their disc though.

I had two of these things "talking" back and forth the other night on the course. Not necessarily scary, but being almost dark and not knowing where these things are just kind of gives off that creepy feeling that makes your hair on your neck stand up.

This spot is known as the parking by the bridge or hole 5 little Lehigh parkway.
Same guys, every time I p[lay this course. Its like a craigslist/backpage destination creepy as sht

Played a tournament in Cortez, Colorado this summer and we came upon a homeless couple passed out directly underneath the basket on Hole 4. I walked up there and spoke loudly at them, finally waking up the man. I tried to explain that they were in a dangerous spot, but he was either drunk or stoned and didn't seem to understand a word I said. He finally woke up his significant other, and after much arm waving I got them to move under a tree that was about 50 feet from the basket. Good times...
