Plum Creek in Lexington, NE. Just plain sketchy. I played alone in the morning before the thugs were awake but it was still eery and I was waiting for someone to approach me. There were a few homeless guys there and evidence of wrong doings everywhere.

Globeville Landing in Denver sometimes has mentally unstable sorts lounging around and a weird campsite or two with little to no discer traffic. Also sometimes when I'm deep in the thick of the Blair Witch Course in North Denver I wonder if someone is going to jump out of a bush and say: "Surprise!". But mostly I wonder if bored local kids are going to snatch a blind shot and try to sell it the next day on the course.

I played it solo last week no problems at all!

Does anyone else notice that all the disc golfers who have been shot or stabbed to death on the course are not voicing their opinions on this thread. Weird.

yeah that's odd but those who have been harrassed, robbed, or seen strange things are giving interesting anecdotes.

When I played Kelsey Scott there were two large groups of gangsters on opposite sides of the parking lot. one was your regular thugged out type and the other were clearly all born in africa.

i didnt feel threatened or anything they seemed to just be hanging out selling drugs or whatever. i kept an eye on my car during the round but never really freaked out about it.

honestly i'd play just about anywhere alone, i used to walk around in some pretty bad neighborhoods going door to door for sears at night. i've had people answer the door holding a knife. so playing in a park doesn't really worry me.

Drove through Lexington once. English is definitely a second language in that town. Not what you would expect in central Nebraska.

Blue Valley was a little sketch to me. My friends and I were confronted by a couple gang-bangers at the 7-Eleven down the street before the round. Drove away unharmed, but it did make me realize I wasn't in a real nice part of town.
