Most hated plant in your area for disc golf?

In my area of Maine and for me it has to be the American Beech tree. The buds are inch long potentially eye gouging spines and the branches are incredibly rigid, more rigid than any other tree I know of. This one tree causes me more pain than just about every other species combined. On top of all that the species suffers from a blight and doesn't even really ever have the chance to grow to majestic old growth 99% of the time, instead suffering a slow ugly death when about 12-24 inches diameter breast height.

What's your most hated plant for disc golf in your area?

The razor-wire, I mean thorns, at Giles. The ticks just add insult to injury.

As a course designer, I would say clearing prickly ash in MN.

^ This, but blackberry bushes deserve an honorable mention for drawing blood on some courses.

yes. We also have this grass here in Cali that covers your socks and shoes with spiny, sometimes painful little barbs. Forget the name of the grass but in summer into fall this does really suck.

Hate to get all botany nerd on you Peter, but although Poison Oak is native to Norcal, it is not endemic, which means only found there.

I don't know if it is the most hated (yet), but wild parsnip has become an issue for at least one local course, and it is spreading like crazy around the area. It has become really bad along some of the highways where mowing frequency has been cut or eliminated.
