I don't smoke but don't have a problem with others doing it although you've got to remember that doing pot and drinking booze is "illegal" in Most City/State/Regional Parks! Being "free sprited", playing for the FUN of it should be what the UPDGA is about, not drug'in or booz'in, or breaking local laws, jmho.. Open play with the only OB's or Mandantories, where it going into someone's yard or property. For a poor guy like ME, I'd love to see the "We've got to Play for MONEY", die a hard death, FUN, is what DG should be about. I've only been playing for less than a year but it stuns me, how much "MONEY" seems to have to flow to grease the wheel's of DG, The largest group of plays are pure Amatures, leave the "Gota Make Money for the Pro's"!
hear hear, bogeyman, hear hear... a club that requires drunken doped up law breaking is just as bad off as one that makes you wear a tie. i nominate 'updga, a group of golfing individuals that willl let you be yourself' as the motto
[3.Talking during ALL play is permitted ,dogs permitted ,kegs on golf karts or karts permitted]
Oh man, that sounds awful PDGA Pro Tour status, they don't do kegs but they do Karts, once you use karts, it's all over, next the nice clothes, the big bousm waitress, Golf Shoes, OH GOD NO, not Golf Shoes!!!!!! Arrrrugh!! ;)
Take care, have FUN, Throw Plastic!
