After several reports and complaints about some of the actions of people out at the course this weekend (not tournament players) expect to see Rangers and some State Police (they are right down the road) in the parking lots and potentially on the course or putting basket area until these people are either deterred from playing or acting like they have.

Reports from the weekend:
Music blaring from the parking lots that could be heard through the park.
Breaking glass bottles on picnic tables.
Underage drinking.
Drug use.
Jumping on picnic tables to break them.
Attempting to major to baskets from throwing logs into them.
Threatening to fight people for trying to stop the above behavior.

Michigan State Parks is very concerned that families and serious lovers of the sport that have traveled to the park to use the course will have or have had a negative experience due to these people. That will not be tolerated or be allowed to continue. So, if you are doing anything that you believe that a Park Ranger or State Police officer would have issue with you doing, I recommend not doing it at the course. I think we know the few issue to what I am referring to. Pass the word and if you witness any problems please call the phone number listed on the Official Scorecard. The number is on the back on it.

Straight Drives.

It's good to hear that the park is concerned about making sure we can enjoy our sport in peace.

I think more players in our sport should take an interest to meet the people who budget our parks, staff them, and manage them. If more disc golfers either called the park managers or stopped in to discuss the sport with them, they would be refreshed to learn that the park managers are just as interested about their park as we are.

Here's a thought... invite them out to more events? That would be way more effective.

Not excusing anything but how often do you go to the office on your weekends? They are in their offices all week when disc golfers whiz right by them. If players are concerned or have a suggestion, stop in. It really isn't that difficult. We are using their parks.

They are already aware when all of your events take place. We schedule with them...
