Littering, destruction of trees/ foliage/ park equipment, grafitti, dog dumps, oblivious bystanders, disc thieves, people throwing up your arse, people wanting to play through when there's people you're waiting on, rules/ technique mongers(telling you what and how to do things), cheaters, fairway soccer matches, obnoxious drinkers who litter, phone calls that hold up/ disturb play, any action that is against proper etiquette, wasp nests in a tree you're in, I think that's all. :)
Every thing that CBASS said right above me and this:

People who are gnawing on a turkey leg while trying to putt!

People who are on the same card that are the first to throw and the last to arrive to their disc. 30 to 45 seconds is plenty of time to get your shot off after marking your lie. Slower players totally screw up the rhythm of the game for other players. Hate to be selective with who I play with but sometimes I just want to play a fluid round of disc golf and have no excuses for shooting like crap. My worst rounds tend to happen with lagers. It's good every once in a while to build a stronger concentration level during play such as when there are back ups on tee boxes during competitions but not when I'm trying to shoot a PB / personal best.

Can't believe that I forgot to post about this! Apparently someone (kids, I imagine) decided to start a few of the pine trees at Epple park on fire a couple days ago. One of them might be a goner, we'll see later in the spring. But, W.Tha.F!! Uncalled for. I hope they find them and tie them to the tree so we can bean them with discs!!
It's a nice park in the city that really gets used for nothing except for disc golf and kids smoking, drinking and doing drugs in the bushes/trees. But its a nice park otherwise.
Probably the biggest peeve for sure. The thought of my park/course being destroyed by whomever, for whatever reason. That'll get me goin'.
Trash on the course and other vandalism.

1. Trash. I hate trash. At a nice course and people have left bottles and junk everywhere. Even more annoying is when that peice of trash is only feet from the can. Come on you play disc golf! Missing anything should so annoy you that you have to pick it up and get it in there. Such flippant actions make me mad.

2. Vandalism. This one is worse. At least with trash you can say, "Well perhaps they missed and forgot it. or maybe the wind blew the can over and made the mess. Not likely but I like to try to at least think the best of it. But valdalism is open destruction. Signs that are knocked down or signs that are ripped. Then there are other various forms of "art" work such as foul words/foul pics on stairs or benches.

I know none of us are perfect but these seem too obvious to keep in mind and carry out to the best of our ability.
Just a total lack of respect for the course, and fellow players. This includes, but is not limited to, trash, vandalism, rude obnoxious players, drunk/stoned players. Folks who won't clean up after their dog(s) when they bring them with them. Slower moving groups who won't let others play through.....that's just off the top of my head
oh and one more thing. people who do not mark their discs. it is so much easier to get your discs back if we know they are yours. it boggles the mind to find a 15 dollar disc and no way to get it back to the owner.

people who don't make an effort to return a disc if its obviously marked. i could see keeping it if the person does not mark it. they must not have cared that much. but if its marked try to get it back if at all possible.
hmmmm, well, basically what everyone has probably already said, disrespect for a course i.e.....trash...I find more trash within a 20 foot range from the trash can....and a new pet peeve of mine...well, I'll probably get a lot of crap for this one, but, we need to clean up the sport a bit...so, lets keep drugs at home
My pet peeves:

1) someone who stands directly in my line of sight behind the basket when I putt. Also, people who shuffle or put away their disc (making noise) while I'm lining up a longer putt.

2) somone who gets mad when they have a bad shot that carrys on for holes.....

3) loud / obnoxious players w/ no respect for others in the vicinity.

4) players who "convienently" left their bag tag at home.

5) litter bugs - h8 them!

6) someone who is sooo competitive, they won't even acknowledge another player made a good shot. If someone makes a good shot - let em know :)
I have auto-immune disease which causes pain and nausea pretty much every day of my life. If i can tolerate people's cigarette and cigar smoke, they can damn-well tolerate it when i take a few puffs from my pipe for pain relief. i've played in mixed groups when the course is packed and some people don't even notice when i light up my one-hitter and quickly stash it back in my pocket. I think if more people operated this way, it wouldn't be such a big deal. the smell disipates far faster than tobacco smoke. if you are a liscenced patient like me, I say do whatever you're comfortable with.

People who smoke pot during leagues. I don't personally smoke the stuff and I don't care if anyone else does that's their business, but not during leagues. If were going to try to promote this sport to the general public then we have to make it appealing to all. Sorry, just my opinion.
- Fellow golfers that talk and make noise while driving and putting.
- People that litter and pack stuff in and don't pack it out
- People that bitch about how things suck on a course and don't do anything about it
- Vandalism
- I could go on and on, but I'll just keep my blood pressure low and list only a few
