The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Today I took my son who is 2 out to Bandemer for a nice casual round before my wife got home from work. I had him in a stroler to keep him from running off and getting in other peoples way. Not once but 3 times either him or I came close to getting hit from impatiant people. If a group is faster than me I will let them thru on the next tee if I know they are back there.
The first time was on hole 5. I was getting ready to finish up my putt and then a disc came slideing thru my leggs. The second one was on hole 7. I was in view of all the tees in the middle of the fairway. I had a disc skip up and hit the under side of the stroler where my kid was sitting. The last time it happened was on hole 8. The disc actualy skipped off the sun visor of the stroler. All were way too close to my son for comfort. The worst part of it all nobody yelled out FOUR.
Three different times 3 different groups. I just don't understand some people.

I hope you enjoyed throwing those discs as far as you could in the least accessible area near where you were.
I would (and have) pick the disc up and throw it back, HARD. Saying, "Not clear yet, here's your disc back."
If someone is willing to throw a disc in the direction of a baby stroller there is probably not much anyone is going to do to knock sense into them...short of knocking sense into them.

The nice about fools is that we do not need to personally visit bodily harm upon them. The behaviors we witness are not isolated events because, after all, they are fools. In short order they will offend someone with a short temper and they will get the short end of the stick. Ultimate justice is a wonderful thing.
Second one the guy did have to hunt for in the woods. I just tossed it in. And the third one I did throw it back and told him to not get his panties in a bunch and ill be done in a min.
I would have done some bad things. Lucky I was not with you.
i agree, i would have lost it, and have. i can get over being thrown on, but if thier is a kid in my group and people throw on me i do not hold back words or actions, i make sure they get the point! that shit is not f%*king cool.
Yeah you should have laid hands on them, I would have...you should have took their disc and if they asked you if you seen their disc you should have said yeah I threw it about 400 ft. that way after you almost hit my kid with it..Then I would have taco'ed it and left it on the first tee pad.
maybe we need a basic rules sign at the first tee
Thats a shocking story.... dont those other groups realise that if someone gets hit, the local council will hear about it and may consider pulling the course? Then everyone loses. At our local course we're ultra-careful about safety for this very reason.
carry a little pocket knife, and next time it happens, leave their disc where it lands, say nothing, just poke a hole in it and walk on. Evil, yes. a hard-learned lesson, definately.
not a bad idea if i owned a pocket knife.
I got plenty to share, and please let me know if we are ever out and you see any of these fine folk out and about..
