Hey jerks, read this!

Okay, time for my semi-annual plea to disrespectful golfers, smokers, litterbugs, and jerks in general.

What it boils down to is respect. Respect the course. Respect nature. Respect the men and women who have volunteered hundreds of hours and respect the sponsors who have donated hundreds of dollars to give you a free course to play.

That's it. It's really pretty simple -- don't be a jerk.

Disrepectful golfers
  • Don't be a jerk and break branches or saplings that are in your way. Instead, try throwing better shots, staying in the fairway, and oh, I don't know, following the rules and being a good human.

Someone tried to bring this tree between basket 8 and tee 9 home with them

Another golfer left them a message

Smokers and litterbugs
  • The course is not your ashtray or trash can. Put your butts in your bag. Crush your empties and pack them out. Don't throw them in the woods. It's not hard to do, really. In fact, they will weigh less than when you started your round.

Vandals and thieves
  • Stay home. Unfortunately, someone has stolen the "Hill Yeah" sign that was on tee pad 14. Others rolled some log seats down various holes. Weeee, what fun!!!
I know there are probably just a few bad seeds out there, so if you see someone bending branches, throwing butts on the ground, or littering, educate them and let them know that they need to stop.

Everyone else
Thanks for playing the course and picking up trash during your round. We really have one of the cleanest courses around!

Don't forget, we accept PayPal donations of $5 for every few rounds you play to help pay for our yearly insurance bill and regular course maintenance and improvements. Just click the PayPal button to the right. Thank you and happy chucking!
