Personally, I don’t partake but it is pretty rare that you don’t see or smell it out on any given course.
we have a joke in our group anytime the scent comes our way we say "it smells like disc golf out here"

We were saying that back in the early 90s.

If somebody is standing in front of a tee box or something and texting, I'll tell them I'm trying to throw.

...but if a mom and dad and 3 kids have a massive 5 course meal picnic spread 20 feet from the basket, I'm not going to ask them to move.

...and if I have to walk 400 feet to ask someone to move and now I'm a few feet from the next hole, it makes more sense to just move on to the next hole. Especially if I'm fighting the clock against daylight. At the end of the day, if I have to play 4 and 7 twice to get 9 holes in, then so be it.

That's the tough one for sure. I would also just bypass the hole, but for their safety I would tell them what's going on because it's only a matter of time (if they kept eating on the course) that some a$$hat is going to throw on them and potentially hurt someone. As we all know, it's probably easier to get a course removed then put in. !#$%^

btw.. we have 2 beginner courses next to a college, so I'm kind of used to talking to people about moving off the course. lol..

Yeah. I try to tell people when I can and I usually show them a driver to let them see that it isn't a normal frisbee. I've even told a few people that some people that play the course release them at 60+ mph and throw them 450+ feet.

Yup. Last season we had a large group of family/friends (8-10 folks) that had a popup gazebo set up in the fairway. Coolers, they had dragged a couple picnic tables over, blankets, cornhole, music, grills.....

They have every right to use the park, albeit a bad plan. We were not going to ask them to move, we simply teed off next to the gazebo, telling them all about the game. The friendly encounter gave us the chance to warn them that someone was certainly going to throw into them and endanger the children. Playing any hole, is far less important, than any person using the park as they wish.

It also depends on the course.

Look at the reviews for Morningside Park in Knoxville.

I'm not throwing around anybody and I'm not telling anybody anything there.

I was finishing a round at a course in Goldsboro, NC and in the middle of the 18th fairway, right in the landing zone, was a wedding photo shoot session in full tux and gown. The lights, the umbrella shades, chairs, photographer on a ladder, etc. I imagined shanking a Destroyer right into the mix but I fought the urge and walked around.

We came across a group on #14 at Boone Woods once that had a garbage bag spread out in a basket filled with ice and beer.

One year there was a guy asleep in his car on the 5th tee at Mt Airy before our local club tourney.

Seen all manner of kids hanging/climbing on baskets like they were a jungle gym.
