The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I just played Springhill Hobbit and had the opportunity? to call the police. After playing 14? who knows what hole it was because it's poorly marked, might have been hole 16..anyways..a maroon Yukon comes flying down the trail along the fence, off road in the park. I wait and it comes back, I make a hand motion and it comes right by me, so I stand behind a cement pillar in case it's some psycho, and I see some kids, the driver gives me a shocked look as he sees me whip out a sharpie and write his tag # down on my disc, and peels off in the mud fast. They were doing mud circles on the course. I reported it to the police and they said they'd give a quick look for the car, and my tag # turned up the car description that I gave. I hope something happens to these ***** who think it's fun to make mud tracks on the course and possibly endanger people, as it was dark and rainy and they were going fast in a place someone like me would not expect a car.

Mobile, AL- Springhill Hobbit:It was pouring hard cold rain and very high winds, flipping my umbrella inside out and I was soaked by the 3rd hole, but it didn't stop me because I knew I could shower 5 minutes after the round. Long, flat besides the 5-6 holes that shoot up onto or down off of a large steep hill. Plays along a canal, with a large slope covered in rocks and tall grass down to it, 3-4 baskets perched in the high grass at the edge of the hill to the water. One hole shoots up onto the cliff and is a tough reach, the next throws down at the basket on the edge of the canal, then back up and then back down again! Several long holes with 2 drives or at least a midrange upshot needed. No 'tight' holes, but not entirely wide open and with some low ceilings and rough. Dirt tees. Extremely poorly marked and tough to navigate- no signs to park, no parking lot, no course sign or map, some tees completely unmarked, most just marked with a rock or two buried in grass, usually with no # on it. This plus the layout because of the shape of the park make it tough to figure out. Even finding the first hole could be impossible without the directory saying where it was. I would never find #2 without having been told by The King of Rocs and Rollers where it was. I highly recommend a guide, and to the local club- please do something about this! This could be a fun, long tournament course but as it is out-of-towners and first timers are not really able to play it. I could not figure out the last 2 holes, but I did eventually figure out the rest. Grass was mowed, but apparently that's a rare exception.

might be a good idea to get those kids in the Yukon to start mowing the course there for restotution ... where's a lawyer (Mr.Ellis, lol) when u need him ...probably playing disc golf.

But at least they got caught...hopefully they they learn a lesson.
