The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I was out at one of my favorite courses to day playing by myself. It was awesome. I shot the front nine with a personal best, even made through a clearing that i always try when i go out there. Had a new disc, playing by myself, throwing great; couldn't ask for anything more. (Except for an ace!) Then it happened. I was coming up on a group of players, so I decided to slow down. I got to the part where you have to throw across the water for one hole, then back across for the next. As I waited for them to clear and start the next hole, I stepped up to the tee box. When the last guy was done, I whipped my drive out there, strait into the water. ( Good thing it was a floating disc). Not to be discourage, I pulled another disc out and let it fly. Nice shot, right into the fairway. As I started to walk over, I stopped to let the other group shoot back across. I saw one player walk over to my disc pick it up, put it in his bag, and walk about 6ft behind it and grab his and throw it. Right in front of me. The nerve of this guy. So I started to walk around the lake, interrupting their game and headed strait for the guy. Well I guess he saw me coming because of all his friends were yelling at me, started to walk off , and go hide behind his friends. Do i started to act like I was looking for my disc, talking aloud, so they knew I "lost" my disc. As they walked up to the next hole, I walked over and ask him if he had my disc. Of course he said no or I wouldn't be writing this. To make matters worse, I played little league with this guy. I remembered because he use to steal people glove a the time. It was all down hill from there. I took a drop, threw my disc and it landed into a mud hole. As I went go get it, my foot slipped in and is now soaking wet. I decided to take a breather and go sit by the lake and smoke a cigarette. By this time my first disc was getting close to the edge. I got back up and started to look around for my "lost" disc. I figured there was a slim, very slim, chance he was telling the truth. Two guys behind me went to played through and ask me if I lost something. I told them what happened and they told me that I was probably right. That the group of guys were shady and they wouldn't put it past them. He was telling me that they don't pay for their games, (It is a private course,$5) and always throwing there trash around. For the rest of the game, i couldn't get my head right. My score kept getting worse and the disc i did get from when threw it in the water went back into the drink. I am not really looking for sympathy, just venting. To MARK, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, I HOPE THE DISC HITS UP IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD.!!!!! To Trevor, Thanks.

Put him on the wall of shame, do a blog post and put him as a known disc thief!

Damn Right!!!! Always be aware of your surroundings! I carry most of the time. I call it my "lead disc"

Love it, another discer with a CCW license. I wonder how many of these disc thieves and people that are robbing lone discers on some courses think about that. I know I have carried mine at a few shady courses when I was alone after I started hearing that stuff happening.

The way I look at it is if he needs it more than me so be it. If he would of ask I had about three more I could have gave him. But in the end it is about self control and there are more important things to get upset about than a stolen disc. My girlfriend said I was too easy on them and should of made them open there bag but, that is what she likes about me. Not much will upset me for long.

I have had that happen, but I was never able to walk away. I always get my disc back, it's fun to just keep following them and asking questions that they are so annoyed they have to give it back to you. I have also taken my disc back out of someones bag while they were throwing, not much they can do. Oh, and while your at it grab one of theirs for good measure...jk. You handled yourself well. Sounds like those guys have somthing coming to them, whether that be banned from the course or a 6'5" drunk guy.

Robby you may never see this,but I'm sure that every mis-deed that thief conducts will revisit him ten fold.I've lived long enough to see it happen to several golf villians!

Was this at Trophy Lakes? I am going to try and play a round there in Feb., and this would be handy info, so I can watch for these idiots. I hope all the discs in his bag float if he picks one of my discs up, that's all I'm gonna say about that.

wow dude that so sucks, i would be so pissed !! i have a simaler story, we have a course here were some local teenage hulagans used to hang out, one time we were playing this one perticular hole that is a long fairway that hooks to the right around some trees and down a hill, the pin is hidden from view, we could see these kids hanging out in the woods close to it a few holes back as we were coming up to it, but didnt think anything about it, my buddy cranked a monster drive that made the bend and was looking to be an awesome drive, when we had all thrown our drives and went to look for it, his disc and the kids were gone ! he was so pissed ! a few weeks later another group of friends and fellow disc golfers caught the same group of kids picking up one of their discs they had just thrown, i guess they chased them down and confronted them, they got cocky and said, prove it, call the cops if you dont like it, he told them dont worry, we wont need to bring the police into this, i guess when he set his bag down and started walking towards them, they knew he meant business and had a change of hart and handed his disc over, as they were handing him his disc back i guess he noticed some of the other discs these guys were holding had names on them and were from players he knew, so he got them back as well and gave them back to their rightfull owners who i guess had the same thing happen to them,unfortunately my buddys wasnt one of them, stangely someone found it a couple years later in a pond at another course and returned ot to him, cool thing though was, that was the lst time we saw those hulagans.

now i am not saying confronting inididuals like this group did was neccasarily the right or smart thing to do, calling the police probably would have been safer and the proper thing to do, but hey it worked and as i said, this perticular group of hulagans that had hung out and vandalized the course and stole peoples discs for most of a summer, pretty much dissapeared after that.

You should have just said, I saw you pick my disc up and I want it back NOW! You don't need to take that crap from anyone! And yes Karma will catch up to him as well.....but you would at least have your disc back.
