Don't pretend to be what you aren't.
I'm not sure it's more complicated than that.

Of all the courses in the area, Elver is by far my least favorite to play -- for a few reasons. That area of Madison has really gone downhill, unfortunately, so this is not surprising. Elver seems like a free-for-all crazy situation, with little kids running down the hill (fairway) just when you're about to throw out of the woods across the hill. And etiquette seems non-existent there. I was playing there with a buddy and we were waiting for the hole to clear. A single runs up behind us an announces he's playing through and throws before the hole is cleared. This happened twice in the same round. Heistand doesn't seem to have these problems, not that I've seen anyway.

As far as approaching the non-payers, you may want to ask the parks department on what to do, they may very well tell you not to approach them. Or they may ask you to shoot a video if you do, then you have some evidence of their actions. Either way it's a problem that isn't likely to go away, just based on the location and the people who play that course. It sucks that you're a season pass holder and have to put up with it, if it were me I'd stick to Heistand and forget Elver. Just not worth the aggravation.

I know, and like I said, it's just something we joke about a lot (because it would probably work). I just like to dream of a world where I have park ranger authority to kick people out of Elver and hand out tickets.

Yeah, it's becoming a toss up: Deal with all that comes along with Elver, or deal with a 45 min - 1 hr drive through beltline traffic to get to HS. Elver is such a better course, golf-wise though that I still lean towards dealing with it.

And there is a private course to play out by where I work (Verona), but that's not an every-day course.

Oh I got it. Get a job as park ranger! Government benefits, cool job, and the authority to charge!

Back when P2P first started they would actually check some days, and people were unsure whether they would get caught. It was great. I could play Elver at 5pm and not have to wait 50 trillion eons.
If it's not worth the cost of admission. Then don't play there.

Says the guy who made a thread asking if it's okay to impersonate a park ranger.
