I completely disagree. People bitch about league rounds being slow, but yet if multiple people are let through each group, you are adding even more time. When it becomes multiple solo and twosomes it has a major effect on league enjoyment. It's not really fair to the league participant's either. I have also let many through who proceed to throw where a long search then ensues. If you know the player, it is easier to allow it. Much also depends on how the groups are staggered, etc. If you have several hole gaps then players should be let through, every hole groupings, no. What if you end up with 6-8 solo or twosomes which eventually want to play through. You could be adding an hour to the round. So it comes down to a couple people being inconvenienced vs. a whole group.

Like any other organized activity using the park, if there is already someone there, you wait your turn or go elsewhere. That doesn't mean that I personally don't let players through, even in league, it's just the presumption that if you don't all the time you are a bad person, or as Auto put it, A Barbarian. If i'm not waiting for multiple groups ahead, I always let faster players through and sometimes even then, but it doesn't always make sense.

Just like in ball golf, if i find myself behind slower groups with no where to go (they are also waiting on people in front of them), I throw multiple discs, balls or move to where I can play at the pace i want. If a group is waiting for another group in front of them, no one has any real business playing through. It is the thought that they are entitled to do so, that I find problematic. Reality sucks some times and if your expectations are a fast solo round on a busy league night you are refusing to face reality. Just saying.

unless your league is playing on a private course or has an exclusive use agreement with the parks department, YOU HAVE ZERO RIGHT to expect others to leave the course or to prevent them from playing through. it is not incumbent on anyone to accommodate the league on a public course.

you really need to come around on how you think about this because it has zero to do with disc golf, zero to do with how public parks work, and it makes you sound like a complete tool.
I mostly agree with your sentiment, however, around here it seems that the courses are in public parks but the specifics like tee pads, signs, and baskets are provided by the clubs/leagues, etc.

That doesn't give them carte blanche--it is still a public park, but I'm much more willing to compromise based on the work they've done to give me a place to play.

I see too many posts of violated rights when the exercise of those rights also violates someone else's rights.

lulz

letting a solo casual play through on an almighty League Round is hardly comparable to breaking and entering into somebody's house

Agreed about mutual respect, so league members such as yourself should mutually respect the rights of non league golfers to use a public park and follow the posted rules, which usually say something like "slower groups should allow faster players to play through".

i would make a distinction between clubs and leagues. sure, they are the same thing for a lot of people in a lot of places but the efforts of the club are distinct from a league round, even when those efforts are funded by those league rounds.

in a slow league round, i'm not keen on offering non-league players to play through. but i also can't stop them if they choose to hop ahead a few holes. and personally, i would leave and go elsewhere if i showed up at a course during league play and the course was packed. i'm lucky to have plenty of options and i do realize that is not the case for everyone. so i can see how league and non-league players get frustrated with each other in places where courses are not so abundant. but the bottom line is that everyone is entitled to make use of a public park.

It says precisely that on the huge board next to hole 1 at the course I'm referring to. Under the rules and etiquette section. In the county park that I also pay for my annual permit. In fact it's pretty common knowledge, at least around here. But it should definitely be common sense.

If they take the whole course, which they obviously don't because you mention playing through and all, then you need to join or play elsewhere. If the whole course is being taken then I also find it hard to believe there is not a posting somewhere. Maybe Facebook?
I'm not sure if you are filling in all these blanks in your head or you aren't reading the user names in posts, but I made no mention of me playing through.
