July, 2009: I'm trying to spread things out to give more people an opportunity to come out. The first part of that is a standard cycle of 3 courses (Kentwood - Cornwallis - Cedar Hills). I'll schedule, with more advance notice, outings at the new Carrboro course, Valley Springs, Buckhorn, etc. to add variety.
Something else I've been thinking about lately as we have expanded: If we have enough people at a given meetup, I can start making groups by skill level, so more advanced players can play from the long tees if they wish.
NEW September 27, 2012: This text is from the PDGA's website on disc golf etiquette. Please follow these ... suggestions to be considerate to everyone on the course.
A. Players should not throw until they are certain that the thrown disc will not distract another player or potentially injure anyone present. Players should watch the other members of their group throw in order to aid in locating errant throws and to ensure compliance with the rules.
B. Players should take care not to produce any distracting noises or any potential visual distractions for other players who are throwing. Examples of discourteous actions are: shouting, cursing, freestyling, slapping course equipment, throwing out of turn, throwing or kicking golf bags, throwing minis, and advancing on the fairway beyond the away player. Shouting at an appropriate time to warn someone in danger of being struck by a disc is not a violation of courtesy.
C. Refusal to perform an action expected by the rules, such as assisting in the search for a lost disc, moving discs or equipment, or keeping score properly, etc., is a courtesy violation.
D. Littering is a courtesy violation.
E. Courtesy dictates that players who smoke should not allow their smoke to disturb other players. Smokers should extinguish their cigarettes and carry their cigarette butts to a trash can. Disposing of cigarette butts by dropping them on the ground is littering.
801.03 Excessive Time
A. A maximum of 30 seconds is allowed to each player to make a throw after:
The previous player has thrown; and,
The player has taken a reasonable time to arrive at the disc and mark the lie; and,
The playing area is clear and free of distractions.
