If parking along that road right now is legal, which it seems it is, then yeah, disc golfers are probably going to park there, and there's nothing morally or legally or even ethically wrong about it.
If that leads to neighbor complaints to Metro and Fairview, increased scrutiny on disc golfer behavior, and general dissatisfaction among neighbors and Metro with the disc golf course, it seems to me that yes, disc golfers would be cutting off their nose to spite the face. Avoiding parking fees at the expense of the thing they are parking there for in the first place. And yes, the thing which might ultimately "solve" the problem for everyone except the people who don't want to pay to park at the course, is 'No Parking' signs.
Does parking there make people douchebags or jerks or evil? Eh, it's an opinion. Can we all agree it's not going to help the course in the long run, it's not going to make a positive impression on the neighbors or Metro, and it's not going to help get Metro onboard to do a similar project?
Well said, Sir.
And thanks for this question and answer:

A: I walked in to the office (the brown house on the right just past the disc golf parking) and said I am here to buy a year pass for the disc golf course. I felt like that got the point across.
because that machine that I feed money into didn't know or care if they were disc golfer dollars
