Sounds like we need a time limit to take one's shot, more than we do a disc limit. Oh wait! We do have one of those.
ding ding, we have a winner!

They rented a cabin and ruined my weekend. But whatever its there right to be dicks, I just moved courses

Maybe any rule made should be more focused on unreasonable delay of ANY kind: discs, phones, kitchenettes, hot dog carts etc

Hell, there's probably a rule for that already.

An unwritten rule of Tiki golf (all of the rules of Tiki golf are unwritten) is that if you bring it with you on the course, you don't put it down. So bring 3 discs & a beer, but be prepared to hold the beer & two of the discs in your off hand while you throw.

Alas, the younger generation of Tiki players respects not this rule & we now see orphaned beer bottles (and sometimes discs) on a whole lot of teepads.

Ball golfers generally don't risk the hazard of losing their clubs during the round either.

scarpfish pwned this thread. This isn't ball golf.

True, at a tournament everyone has lots of equipment. The problem is people bring this mentality with everyday of the week. I hate the bottlenecks these guys cause

I like the idea of having the time limit which is already in place. It kinda forces you to learn specific discs and then have multiple versions of it (beat, light, all that. Which I really like the idea of, which is why I'm learning the Vibram putters because they all feel about the same in hand but fly very differently due to the beads (which do not effect release at all... oddly). Also I don't think ball golfers have the flight/line patterns that we do.

I don't think you understood what he said...it isn't the equipment that's slowing people down. The mentality and the equipment are two different things. I guarantee that I'll take just as long to think about my shot if I have 3 discs as I would if I have my whole bag. Most of the time I know what I'm throwing before I've walked up to my lie. After that its thinking about executing the shot correctly and making sure there isn't a better line. That isn't going to change based on how many discs I have with me.

Oh and um...if it isn't a tourney...ask to play through? Man, that was a tough solution...

So this isn't a tournament problem then, but a casual play one? Sorry, but the PDGA has no jurisdiction there, or at local leagues, or at unsanctioned tournaments.

I voted for "No Limit", not because I feel people should have 100 disc and take forever to choose one. But for the reason that instead of putting a limit on the number, put a time limit on how long a player has to choose and drive a disc from the tee. For example: it is my understanding that the pdga has a time limit for a "lost disc" of 3 minutes. Therefore I would agree to a time limit on teeing off

You don't have to; it already exists. 801.03A:
Quote:
A maximum of 30 seconds is allowed to each player to make a throw after:
• The previous player has thrown; and,
• The player has taken a reasonable time to arrive at the disc and mark the lie; and,
• The playing area is clear and free of distractions.
