You don't have to believe them, but at least you usually get your disc back.

I've lost as many discs off tee 1 at badlands as anywhere. Throw multiple discs (very tempting on this extreme downhill) and you can easily lose track of one. Flip the disc anhyzer and it can go in the middle of that marsh between the hole for 1 and the tee for 2. Flip it anhyzer and get a solid ride and you can be in the creek or the small pond behind the #2 teepad. Throw over the hill without looking first and you can hit someone or get close enough to p!$$ them off. ALWAYS take the 15 steps to peak over the hill to make sure no one is in the landing zone (which includes a sidewalk on this particular hole.)
It's frustrating having a disc picked up. Because DG courses are often in multi-use parks, discs are sometimes "returned" to you by a person who doesn't know what Disc Golf is. I've had a disc picked up at the pin for #2 and thrown down the hill by a teenager at Badlands. It sucked, but either he didn't know that I threw it or he was just being dumb. At any rate, I headed down the hill and retrieved my disc, came to my approximate lie and completed the hole. No big loss.
