    This is why we can't have nice things

    Found this little pile (and tons more in the nearby bushes) next to hole 6 at Orchard Park. There are garbage cans on the next two holes, as well as the preceding two holes.

    For the record, alcohol is not allowed in the park.

    I'll be playing at Orchard tomorrow. I'm new to the sport, but I vow to do my part. I'll be bringing a garbage bag with me tomorrow.

    That's awesome, man! We live in what is arguably one of the most gorgeous places in the world. If you ask me, I'd say it's assuredly the prettiest... I pick up litter wherever I go, disc golf courses especially.

    Make it fun(er)! pick up as you play with some style.

    I've posted this one several times before
    Fairway Shark! or maybe make a garbage gator?
    I've got another one that I left black but I'm plastering with DG stickers.(to make it legit of course - ooh.. I need a Prodigy sticker now, don't I?)

    I'd venture to guess that for every piece of trash you pick up on the course, two less pieces will end up there next to it, and at least one other person usually follows your lead and picks up trash. At least some of these litter bugs leave plastic bags for us to pick up after them.

    Give a hoot, un-pollute!

    I played Lunchtime with my son today (at lunch time, no less), and we picked up several beer cans and a few canby bar wrappers. It's been said that the few ruin it for the many, though a few can make it better for the many as well.

    Well, I finally took a garbage bag out there with me this morning and could tell that others had been picking up too because it was a lot better than the last time I was out. Thanks to all those who did the pick up! I still got a few cans and bottles on my round. The place is starting to look good again.

    I saw a pile just like the one in the OP at Dabney last weekend. Dabney doesn't seem to have as many garbage cans as Milo but still, if it came out of your bag, there's room to put it back in your bag.

    Cattle prods.

    It seems like Milo has been extra bad this year. I remember the garbage cans overflowing in past years, but this year it's like people are trying to trash the park. Last time I played it there were bottles around every pad and even on top of some of the baskets. One of the baskets had an empty six pack with what looked like clothing stuffed into it. I tossed a bunch of bottles, but I wasn't touching whatever that was.

    It's bizarre because Milo has lots of garbage cans.

    What we need are litter bug hunting permits. I'm not saying shoot them, but cattle prods are pretty good at discouraging behavior.

    We also pulled 30+ "redneck chandeliers" out of the trees plus about 5 bags of trash from the course. Asshats galore at Milo.

    On Sunday, while we were BBQing dinner after spending all day pouring the new tees at Milo we saw someone leaning down by the fresh teepad. Buckley ran up there to see what was going on and he catches some these idiots letting their kid jump up and down on our fresh teepad. Yes, it was completely marked with caution tape, AND a written note begging people not to vandalize the pads. Of course, he found some ass named John had written his name in the tee pad and a bunch of tiny footprints.

    We called the rangers, and as soon as the ranger started grilling these morons, the woman started accusing Buckley of scaring their kid by yelling at them. I was like "You mean the kid you let run all over our new teepads is scared now. What a damned shame.". Its a good thing that wasn't a sinkhole, because they clearly allowed their brat to ignore the caution tape. Parents of the year right there...

    Sadly, because we were 400 ft away we couldn't "prove" inconclusively that the guy had written in the pads they got off with a warning. Two days worth of work, and they get a warning.

    Oh yeah... Guess what his name was. Yep, John V.

    Jeff H.

    PS: As usual, a huge thank you goes out to Murray the Brit for doing his best to "fix" the brand new teepad these asshats screwed up.
    Awesome on continuing to improve Milo!!

    Sucks that mouth breathers screw up all that hard work.
    Keep at it!!! More people appreciate the work then you know!!

    They are on holes 10E & 15W. They are finely-crafted using locally sourced grey concrete, rectangular in shape, extremely grippy and up until a few mouth-breathers wrote their initials in them, they were perfect.
