If it is a bathroom, there are casual park goers possibly present. Throwing at it is an awful plan and the hole should be moved. Hit a couple picnickers, on the way to the potty and you may get to move them all (remove).

I'm just imagining a scene out of an action flick... Where an anonymous henchman opens the door with his gun in his hands fresh off a dump ready to defend the boss and without missing a beat the protagonist whips something at him, conks him, he falls backward right back onto the toilet seat, door swinging shut in front of him.

Well yeah, it's a 266 foot hole so you can bird it if you have enough arm to throw over the bathroom. There's never anybody casual on the back side. But if you throw short you're on the roof or stuck behind the wall lucky to get bogey. The pin is not visible from the tee, it's behind the bathroom.

Oh, like that other sport that places bathrooms on the playing field, in line with play.

Is this a permanent building or a port-a-potty? I lived in a place that crammed a disc golf course in with a hole weirdly close to the ball fields, and one year the park maintenance crew just decided to park a port-a-potty there. Once we talked to the park guy and explained that we were throwing Frisbees at it, they moved it.

Tangent: I threw a roller (badly) in a tournament that rolled into a bathroom. The bathroom had not been designated O.B. since nobody thought anybody could make a throw that bad...then they met me! The card made me take a stance in a stall and try to get out; I missed the doorway coming out on my first try. I took a provisional using relief from the doorway, but my round was so bad I didn't even bother to ask the TD about it and just ate the strokes. I still don't know what the rule actually says I should have done there.

Sounds like you played it badly, but correctly.

Sounds like he poo'd it..

When they said it's the "portable" they meant the basket, not the potty.

Oh, that bathroom was permanent. It was really close to the tee, waaayyy off to the left and the door faced away from the fairway. It took a Herculean effort to throw a shot that would be a) pathetically short and b) on an edge so that it would roll around the bathroom and through the door. I was up to the task.

The bathroom was ADA compliant so the opening was just flat and open, but it still took us a long time to actually look IN the bathroom for my disc. Amongst the other questionable rules interpretations that day would have been the amount of time we looked for it; it should have been declared lost. Once it was discovered in the bathroom, the rest of the card was highly entertained by forcing me to play it out of the bathroom. I at least gave somebody a laugh that day. Not me, but somebody.

Thanks man, I love a little "bathroom" humour in the morning.

I renamed my John to Jim.. That way I can say I went to the gym twice this morning.
