Based on the responses on the Charlotte DGC FB page, the stay at home order here, which began Thursday morning, hasn't slowed down the amount of disc golf for some people. For some people, it's seemingly increased the amount they're playing, orders be damned.

Holly Woods: Course and picnic shelters are closed, but park remains open for some activites. I'm trying to upload a photo of the signs posted but file size is too big.

Some of the course closures (at least in this area), are the result of park personnel personally observing groups that aren't practicing safe distancing.

In some cases, the parks themselves remain open for walking, hiking, fishing, etc. but they're specifically posting signs indicating the course is closed, because of, well... idjits.

Yeah, the Washtenaw notification was pretty damning. They clearly stated that the courses parks were being locked, because disc golfers did not give a **** as to what anyone said. Man, it gives me pause for a second to rethink the work that I do for the disc golf community. I, like many golfers, give considerable volunteer time to make the game and courses around here better. Mostly for the very same few douchbags that have cost me the chance to play during this time. Getting out and playing disc golf would mean a TON for my psyche. It offered one of the few coping mechanisms for me. Taken away by some very ignorant, very selfish, very entitled golfers. Next time I see some of them....I shall fart in their general direction.

It was given to me, without copyright. I like wordsmithing but I can't take credit.

Rarely has a new word been more needed.
