Default How rough are you at OB during a casual round.

This is simplay for fun here. I know if in a tourniment that the TD would decide and some of these would have a line to clarify, but I want to know how picky you are in a casual round.

1) Sidewalks do you usually call them?
2) If there is a ditch/creek running across do you do "surrounded by water" or in the ditch from where it obviouly "breaks over" on both sides?
3) creek along the edge of the hole and someone shanks it across to the other side do you let them throw from there.

Me.
1) Sidewalks are out
2) I like to call "in the ditch" I feel it takes some luck out of the "surrounded by water" because your disc did/didn't stop rolling before it got wet and you can clearly see the friggin ditch so it wasnt like it was a suprise that it was Ob
3) Though I friggin hate it the group i usually play casual rounds with usually takes a stroke and plays it as it lies. (any other group it comes back to where it went OB)

I typically follow the course OB rules, unless they define what I feel is a ridiculous amount of OB.

I recall a course that was laid out on a golf course such that the OB cart path seemed to be in play to an obscene degree. I realize the intent is to keep discs away from golfers, but I just made sure the coast was clear and played it where it landed.

We play by the rules every time, even during casual rounds. At my homecourse we had plenty of newbies over the last two years and this is how we teach them. Know the rules, play by the rules…

OB is on the signs. It's typically over the path, fence etc. On any given hole just play the signs.
