YES! This happens all the time and it drives me crazy too. I am normally quite patient but when it gets to be too long and nobody is willing to let you play through it's time to skip to the next hole. Sorry if your pissed, but your 16 person group can eat it.

I have to disagree with you. This subject has come up so much. If you have dog off the leash running around and not listening that is total different from a dog that is well trained. I have not had one complaint about my dog off the leash since I have had her. Do I have a leash with me, yes, I carry it just in case someone does say something. But until that day comes my dog will be off the leash and right beside me or sitting waiting for me and others to putt and drive.

!!!!! YES !!!!! I was in a 3 person group and we were right behind a group of 6-7 people all throwing MULTIPLE discs and they refused to let us play through.....so we SKIPPED....nothing but the stink eye the entire time we walked to the next hole.

As for dogs I am fine with them as long as they are some what trained and the owner doesn't let the dog scat on the fairway, if you are in the rough you should watch where you are walking.

I agree. There is a BIG dif between a trained dog and an untrained dog on the course. However, under normal circumstances, nobody has to bring their dog with them in order to play a round of disc golf. The exception is if you are on a road trip during the summer and can't leave him/her in your vehicle. Like Martin Dew for example, but I have no problem with trained and well behaved dogs. Unless you are allergic, it shouldn't bother you.... IMO.

I'm passionate and have a lot to say on the subject, but it mostly boils down to this^. Forest will remain off leash on about 90% of courses, and will continue to come with me to the course as long as he is able.

If you cant handle parking lot tunes, then id strongly suggest staying away from my home course.
Should i turn my music down to.listen to the other crap thats playing???

Instead of bitching I am going to try and do something about it. That and I can't convince the town right now to let us put up a rules/guidelines sign at the course.

This is exactly what I was referring to with my rant about the unemployed massive groups that clog the course at sundown. Not only they WILL NOT let you play through unless you awkwardly ask them, but they also get mad even if you just skip em.

That being said, I was at LaMa recently and it was fairly un-busy especially for the front course, and this massive group of 8 skipped 9 & 10 (and us in the process). We arrived at the tee for 11 at the same time and I told them about 9 & 10. They laughed and started throwing. 2 of us, 8 of them. The same guys who get their panties in a wad when they are skipped are apperantly entitled to hop around the course at their leisure. I'm not one to cause trouble though so we just went to the back course.

The biggest problem with disc golf is the douchebags it attracts. Been avoiding the course ever since.
