The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Recently I had over heard a colleague of mine talking about disc golf and all he had to say was "disc golf I thought that only hippies and homeless people played that sport", needless to say I was POed. I know that there may be some people that fit into this cross section of society and if you are one of them I'm not judging you and I mean you no disrespect, but I do not and I have heard these remarks said for far to long. I know that there are other people out there that own business and work in successful jobs that also take offense to this type of stereotype please help me show my coworker that their are successful people affiliated with this sport!

If that's how they measure success, then just feel bad for them and don't worry about it.
A friend of mine said that only "beer bellies" play disc golf.

I am retired. But beofre that happened...I was a 32 year factory worker for a breakfast cereal company. But actually decided to make my retirement sport... disc golf. So...I have only been playing disc golf for alittle over one year. But also in that year..I was one of the major volunteers in putting together a disc golf course for Worlds '08. As far as playing...I have still alot to learn. I am having fun in the process. I hope I answered the question correctly.
Maybe the best thing I like about disc golf is the diversity of people who play, so I would not enjoy it nearly as much if only rich people played. But if your friend wants to know, I have a masters degree and a law degree and Sheila also has a masters degree. In 2008 we were in the 2 percent (upper income) of households and would NOT quality for an Obama tax cut - still like his tax plan. (Won't be that rich in 2009, though!)
i am the admission supervisor at our local hospital. i have 20 employees under me. the man responsible for getting me into playing disc golf is a clinical dietitian. i hate stereotyping.
I am a high school teacher, and I work part time as a bouncer in a biker/rock and roll bar. That is pretty far from homeless or hippie. I play the sport because it's cheap, fun, and outside.
B.S. Chemical Engineering and MBA in Marketing. Former professional photographer, engineer, sr. financial analyst and currently self employed computer consultant for past 15 years.
don't let the picture fool you, I have long dreads and slap congas from time to time but I don't smoke weed and i'm not a hippie. I'm a project superintendent for a commercial builder.
I am the CEO of "Cowboy's Fuzzy Duds, Inc." I have been an avid player since 1979.
I'm a firefighter, emt. And work a few extra hours at home depot to pay for my obsession.
BS in Anthropology 1996. Archaeologist and Marketing Consultant. I work to live, not live to work. Long live Disc Golf!
