How times have changed.

Back in the day, 'reaching out to a pro for a lesson' was called a 'money round', thus the neophyte's school was of hard knocks. His consolation was tiny stakes...

DGPT courses should be closed to play to anyone not in the tournament.

Why would you want that? Obviously DURING the tournament, but in the days leading up to it? Do you want the tour to pay for the park to be closed those extra days? I guess I just don’t see how that helps anyone.

Or those playing in the non-existent pro-ams.

Not unusual for pros to only care about getting off the tee on practice rounds, because putting is relatively routine and doesn't require line shaping or placement shots like getting off the tee. It's not like ball golf where you have to practice reading the greens.

It helps the tournament, TD, volunteers, course and pros. After hours of work on the course, laying down OB, C1, C2 circles, tee signs, banners, tee sponsorship signs, water stations, extra porta john, tables, pop up canopies.....you don't want hoardes of casuals pillaging and vandalizing all of the above.

The pros, out practicing, don't want you there.

Toboggan is closed for the entire week leading up to DGLO. Minus a pro/am draw doubles.

I am not sure the tournament club pays to close the course....but, they might.

I would hope they do. If I am a local and my course is shut down for a week before a tournament and those people aren’t paying I would be fairly upset.

I completely understand your sentiment for the day immediately before the event, but are you really leaving water stations up unattended for days prior to the start? I also think back to those times I was on vacation in Arizona for the Memorial week. Being able to play the Memorial layouts for all the courses was one of the best parts of the tournament, way better than actually watching the tournament. If they were blocked off I would just write off the Memorial entirely. I guess disc golf isn’t for spectators, but we can at least be neutral and not hostile.
