It's league night!!! That means fairly packed course and playing through would be pointless. Come another time or join up. I think a hard look in the mirror is in order before calling those dedicated to keeping the course in good shape douches.

More than likely these are the folks meeting early on Sunday or Saturday morning trimming trees, sinking in new pin placements, and taking care of the poison ivy and yellow jacket nests for you.

Sorry... but I think back to all my years of playing ball golf leagues and I don't recall anyone playing that night that wasn't in the league. Don't see why disc golf should be any different.

Oh... and we did let a solo join our card of 3 this week in league to be nice. Course was packed with cards of three and losing daylight quickly. No way he could play through. Only way you could even get on the course is because of the long walk between 18 and 1... so I guess he snuck in there.

Its public land.

Most leagues dont rent. And any league Ive ever shown up at/been a part if/been invited to are full or people like are posting in this thread. Very dedicated, but also very holier than thou. Deal with it or play elsewheren because its never gonna change.

I too hate league players, so I don't go in league nights easy enough. I'm sure individually they are cool, but together leagues can be stand off ish.

Even at my local shop when the league is getting their cards etc. total d bags. All of them. Have Tuesdays ill take the other six days and a different course.

instead of playing through, ever consider skipping ahead of them? if your answer is "there's another group in front of them" i suggest joining the league... sounds like they got a good thing going.

After my long post in another forum, I should probably keep my mouth shut. But I think that league night should probably be avoided by anyone not playing in that league. It's unfortunate as it limits your options but it really seems disruptive to what is already a busy scenario. I don't play leagues so I just stay away on league nights. It would be disappointing if I had traveled a long way to get there. And if the local course starts having events every night that would get annoying as well. BUt I just find another course to play (I hope there are others nearby) and just avoid the confusion.

as a club events director, it's very frustrating to hear people feel alienated from joining a league. its kinda like when i was 7 and afraid of roller coasters, and all my friends would go ride without me while i sat with my grandma feeding pigeons cold french fries. Then one day i got the courage to ride one and i had the most fun i ever had and became addicted to riding roller coasters.
