I haven't heard anything bad, but I know that alot of good changes have been going on the course.

Highland Park is in Joliet, not in Highland Park. Danny Cunniff Park & Fink Park (little boring 9-ers) are in Highland Park. Antisemitics might feel endangered in these parks.

Playing alone is not really the issue at Central Park in Schenectady......... watching your back for flying, stolen minivans IS!

The green cap in the foreground is a sleeve for the 15th hole. We were installing hole #11 at the time this happened.




The next day i went out and shot some pictures to get an idea of how far this guy flew......... my grey truck to the right is where he left the ground. You can see the hole on the left.

Muse Park in Jackson TN. It's a big meet up spot for men interested in other men. So I tend to go with at least one other person. It's not like I couldn't handle myself, but I'd rather not have to.

We were told that the locals that you don't want to meet go up there at night to do whatever it is they do and it's best to stay out of their way.

Unfortunately one of our nicer courses is known for this. When we were younger it was the spot to go hang out and meet women and show off your cars. Eventually people would go there to fight and someone got shot. Cruising was no longer allowed. Then it became the spot for some happy mens. We hoped disc golf would end this. Now they have someone to look at.

I typically back my truck into a parking spot and sit on my tailgate and sell discs. That's like blood in the water for sharks. Someone told me that "backing" into a parking spot was a sign that you wanted attention. Now I park, jump out and run to hole one before anyone talks to me or winks at me.

I've been to a few parks that actually prohibit backing into spaces. There were signs and everything.

I've used the jump and run method myself as well.

Usually in states that only require a rear license plate.

I love the banner mr. Maven

I will concede that none of the courses I listed are as dangerous as I made them out to be, but they are the most dangerous I have experienced
