My favorite was the family of 7 having a picnic in circle 2 of the 14th basket. I know there were several groups ahead of me, so they were aware they were in the middle of a busy course and couldn’t care less. Once you just accept that common courtesy is dead and people are self-entitled idiots, you can laugh it off. Getting pissed off is only hurting yourself.

So you are saying you never had a Badminton net tied to two trees in the middle of a fairway before?

I just tend to laugh things such as this off as 95% of people have no clue what the sport is or how dangerous it is to be hit by a disc.

We have so many courses around here it's easy to avoid other park goers.

Honestly, I get more annoyed by the disc golfers that throw into these people than I do the people that are oblivious to what is going on around them.

Heck, I go run SCCA autocross events at Milton Frank Stadium in Huntsville, right next to a disc golf course. For at least 10 years of running there and not knowing that disc golf was a thing, I thought the baskets were some kind of weird grill setup for cookouts in the woods.

Have you ever stopped to talk to them.....I've had people think baskets were hot dog cookers, rotisseries, for training small animals, etc. The animal training I never got until I saw those larger horse walking devices. lol..

I bet if it were legal everywhere we’d see an explosion of new disc golf courses.

Personally, I don’t partake but it is pretty rare that you don’t see or smell it out on any given course.
