Post Disc Golf Pet Peeves

Hello,

*Apologies if another thread of this exists/existed, but I could not find it in my search of the forum search function.*

So, today I decided that while I was in the area of the course that after my cousin's birthday lunch I would get some rounds in since the weather here in Oregon has been the best its been in almost 5 years for Memorial weekend - why not get some disc golf sessions in and enjoy the good weather, right?

Well, that idea did not last long after my first round of 9 holes at the course.

Upon finishing up my first 9 holes of the course I was hit met with these:

- A group (about 6+) all together, holding up the course as they all wanted to play together.
- A group that continued to cut in front (jump straight to hole 4), only to be caught up to later on.
- A group that decided they were going to just aimlessly throw discs around and waste time.
- A group that seemed to want to be on my tail however, did not want to take up my offer of letting them go ahead of me.
- A bunch of people walking in the middle of the course along the paths without a care for disc golfers.
- A bunch of kids who though the best place to play was right in front of a tee pad.

All this, at just one course. Now, I would have gone to the other course however, when I drove by it on my way home I saw three, THREE groups of 6-8 people in them waiting in line for their turn to start the course - THREE! Sadly, I had to forgo that course because I was not really interested in finishing the course and then having to be stuck behind these groups and shoot through (I like to take my time and I feel rushed when people let me play through).

Anyways, what are some of your pet peeves that you've encountered through your years of playing this sport? These are basically my major pet peeves after coming back to the sport and I only really see it at these two courses - these two courses are kind of in a bad part of the this city and are usually have some sketchy people in them.




Cheers!

Are you really just upset because you have no one to play with? A single on a busy course is ALWAYS going to have a hard time and in my view they have no standing on the course.

I met a really old guy with a really old brown lab. He was wearing a hunter-orange hooded ski parka. He was sticking to the path. I said good morning to him and he smiled. Didn't have a tooth in his head. He commented on the wind and said he would stick to bowling. I agreed and said that if you had a problem with wind in a bowling alley you had a real problem.

Sounds like everybody else was having a great time. And there’s one disgruntled disc golfer.

If you're a solo player and don't want to be frustrated, stay away from courses on a weekend: especially a holiday weekend.
The rest of the world doesn't care if you want to play in peace.
