This. I'm on the course to throw, not stand around. This is why I don't play Pier Park except before noon on weekdays.
Also, I don't have as much fun if my score actually matters, and if I can't throw extra discs to see what they would've done.
Also -- the reason I posted here -- I've rarely seen a large congregation of disc golfers that didn't involve cigarette smoke. I know people "try" to stay downwind, but you know that doesn't always work out. I can smell it from 500 feet away. (Pot smokers actually bother me less, because they usually go back in the woods and do their thing, and don't carry it around with them stinking up the course... on the other hand, pot smokers who do it out in the open piss me off much more, because it's not good for the image of the sport.)
I think it's interesting that so many serious disc golfers are always looking for organized tournaments to play in... most other sports aren't like that. There are thousands, maybe millions, of hard-core ball golfers who play every single weekend, but they rarely play in tournaments.
