i have the same problems man...
Why do you want to ruin a round of golf?
yup I've got my girlfriend to play two times and both times she didn't like it so i stopped asking her to play since she already said she don't want to and i respect her decision.
drug or club'em :)
dump her and date somebody who is into disc.

Naw, in all seriousness. I've seen it go both ways. Some guys want their g/f's out on the course with them, other guys look at it as a way to get rid of them for a few hours. Whichever one you are, you have to set your priorities. Is it more important to you to have an amazing g/f? or one that plays disc golf?
Depends on the individual. Somethings that my Wife enjoys are

Exercise: She works out as well, but she sees and enjoys the benefit of walking the course and throwing, more benefit with elevation. But if shes into that you can pitch it as fun exercise.

Scenery: Much like going for a walk or hike, if you are into the nature walk why not toss a disc every now and then.

Competition: In our case it isn't just me vs her, not really fair at our respective levels but she enjoys challenging herself to improve, counting her score against previous best rounds.

A day away; We always combine travelling with a night out, try a new restaurant etc go shopping.
My wife has been out several times. We often take day long road trips and we have come to friendly agreement that she can stay in the car and read (which she is fine with) as long as she is able to take the same amount of time that I played to go antique shopping. So Disc for me is nice break from her in most cases,
Why drop her at an antique hell hole and go throw.

My wife would be happy to go to some craft store, so I will drop her there and go throw.
My Wife and I play together nearly every day. To make things interesting, she plays the par noted on the sign, the basket, whatever (even if it's in sharpie), and I play by the ever-loving "three". Most holes I come across should be a three anyway, if you follow PDGA guidelines, but it becomes a challenge when that 350-footer with scattered trees is listed as a five for my Dear Wife. Yes, she will Eagle it, and I have to hope for Birdie to not lose to much ground. We aren't overly-competitive, but it makes for interesting rounds, and it keeps me on my toes a bit more than playing by myself. But isn't that part of why we get married, anyway?
I get my girlfriend to play with me a once or twice a month...but she prefers it to be just her and I...it's a nice break for both of us to get out and enjoy the outdoors. She does not like the competitive nature that the friends I play with regularly input into the game. She tried once to play with the 'boys' and didn't like it. So try a round with just you and her...and make it fun!
I like the fact mine doesn't like it!LOL!!
But seriously now..The local group of disc golfers out here will put on clinics for newbies. Even though my better half did not like disc golf. It was better for both of us that she had some one else showing her the ropes. That way there was no pressure for her or me.
