In the well spring of ramblings on the PDGA discussion board, a seven-year-old thread moves back to the top of the list: Can a TD refuse entry to a tournament?

The ruling is clear: PDGA tournaments on public property are open to all PDGA members in good standing. Invitational events like the USDGC are an exception. Also, where the course is on private property, the property owner has the right to refuse an entrant. Likewise, a public park authority can refuse access to an individual where this is legal and warranted.

Anyways, I've had the honour of playing golf with some class "A" as$hats in the past. You know the type that don't stop talking, or who convert their state to "trainwreck", or who are just rude to whoever they feel they should focus their attention on. I've also played on cards with stinky people, evangellical religious types, self-focused "individuals" who really pissed others on the card off, and certain otherwise intimidating people.

I have yet to meet someone that I would refuse entry to. Even guys who throw thumbers off the tee.

Don't waste your gas driving to the Mudslide buddy. Private property and all. Not sure we can get you in.

Seems this would only apply to PDGA events anyway.

I thought that you would appreciate an equally dry response.
