Maybe instead of whining on the forum someone should inform them that people are doing this. Maybe they will start towing cars or maybe they don't care, who knows but until they are contacted we don't know. It's NOT pay to play the course it's pay to park your car and if some are smart enough to not pay then I say all more power to them and the more idiotic it makes the people in charge of the park look. If it's supposed to be pay to play then make it pay to play don't F around with some weird parking rule and if it's not then these people aren't doing anything wrong.
That's it for me in this thread the Sillybizz bashing can now go on without response from me.
Not sure if you've had an opportunity to play this course yet. The parking area in question is within a neighborhood, but close to the park turn on hole 7/8. This is the one and only spot close enough to park and still get into the park. This is also a spot many of the neighbors would prefer to allow their guest and friends to park at, hence the reason they have not restricted this small 3-5 car patch of asphalt as no parking yet.
Great idea restricting the time allowed to park. That is the solution several neighbors are mentioning to the Blue Lake staff.
I had a great conversation with someone in the office today when I bought my year pass. I made sure to clearly state I'm buying the pass because of the Disc Golf course. I asked if the had any issues with disc golfers and they have been very pleased, litter has been cut down due to trash and recycle bins, and the parking situation is frustrating to the neighbors but not a deal breaker yet. This idea of a time that is restricted for parking is what she mentioned they plan to use as a remedy.
I had chosen not to get the pass when the park opened and it cost me over $55 since I had played so often in that short amount of time. I will make sure I don't let this pass lapse, unlike my Washington park pass I gladly let expire.
