    Sadly this is illegal too! You can't even have a sling-shot/wrist rocket in a state park...legally speaking.

I dont think going around and threatining fellow golfers with banishment is the right idea.
      This has nothing to do with a threat, IT'S ILLEGAL!!! Get that into your head.

        ... and i would argue that perhaps it is exactly the right idea. when we as a community are banding together and donating our hard earned cashmoney, which for the most of us i would guess we are not exactly rolling in, to help purchase baskets and such for our courses, not to mention just the hours of volunteer time as well that some of these folks put in doing course work, i think it is time to get serious about this. we care deeply about our courses and more and more are moving towards the idea of real stewardship of these parks we use... instead of just posting a sign at the course or passing on the message, "hey, tagging isn't actually a tradition... most people sorta frown upon it..." but a sign saying, "tagging is vandalism and will be treated as such. perpetrators will lose their privilege to frequent this golf course," then perhaps we will make some serious headway in stopping this utter silliness. it's a ridiculous and entirely unnecessary practice.

        someone else said it, too... right, we may not ever stop this entirely... but there's a lot of stuff out there that isn't going to ever stop... doesn't mean we shouldn't do everything we can...

            I got to play with some golfers that were from the mid-west, michigan I think, that were visiting here. When I got an ace I handed the first guy my disc and a sharpie and asked for a witness. These guys were so confused, saying "we don't sign the disc, we sign the basket." I told them its considered vandalism around here, again they were confused saying that they think that signing somebody elses ace plastic is considered rude. I asked how long most of them had played disc golf, they said that the youngest player has been huckin for about 6 years, so obviously they wern't rookies. So if you give a threat about banishment for signing the basket (vandalism) then that SHOULD BE POSTED ON A SIGN ON HOLE 1 IN BIG WORDS, or atleast very visable when entering the park and or course.

                I played at a course in TX that had a bulletin board near hole 1 that was designated as an ace roster. It actually seemed to work pretty well, people were still able to boast their aces for everyone else to bear witness, and (for the most part) kept the baskets from being vandalized... There were still a few douches that decided to tag the baskets, but when they got called out on their douchebaggery and directed towards the appropriate place to testify, it usually made them second guess their actions.

                  Do we need to make a list of all the things that it's illegal to vandalize or are baskets the only one you're struggling with? And how is it less "rude" to vandalize a basket that ISN'T yours, than signing a disc from a guy who asked you to sign HIS disc?!?!?

                      That's kind of a good point. I mean, they're fun and all, but I don't even sign my discs. Disc golf aces are nowhere near as rare as ball-golf aces.

                            I was playing in a big group of seven yesterday and didn't get an ace but I made a really sweet 50 foot putt. I was really proud of it so I pulled out the sharpie and wrote my name, date, pdga number, type of putter used including the color and weight, on the basket.

                            It took so long to write all this information on the baket that the group of 2 people behind us asked very politely if they could play through. Of course I told them to go F-off and just wait till I'm done. I don't think I offended the 14 year old girl and her dad.

                            I then threw my empty beer cans on the ground, cussed at a casual park user, watched my unleashed pit bull crap on the next tee pad, and finished my fun round.

                            Looking forward to my next round!
