 Can you actually plant poison ivy?

Pros: Elevation changes make this relatively open and short-medium length course fun. Most of the shots begin in open shots off the tee, with pins placed in and around trees.
Pins placed near hills require some strategy.

Some challenging tunnel and tunnel upshots required on the final 3-4 holes. Even though there aren't any "long bomb" holes, the elevation changes require some torque.

It's not bad exercise walking up and down the hills either.
Cons: If you are, or think you possibly could be, allergic to poison ivy, don't even attempt to play this course. The plants grow freely in huge patches all over. Instead of upping the penalty for wayward shots, you can stick a drive 10 feet from the pin, and be smack in the middle of a patch of ivy. Unless you're Ken Climo, you and/or your disc will find its way into the stuff at least once.
Seriously, it looks like they're growing it intentionally.

While the location makes for some nice scenery, it also musters up some pretty formidable wind. I've never seen a TeeRex get so close to flipping over. If wind is forecast, it may be worth avoiding this course.
Other Thoughts: One of the only pay-to-play courses in the area, yet it's one of the most poorly kept as well.

For $9, for my wife and I to play one round, you'd think they'd buy a bit of weed killer, or maybe a bullwhip and a chair, and try to tackle at least SOME of the ivy. Just around the pins, maybe?

Pros: The course is easy to navigate, has concrete teepads and is in a beautiful park.
Cons: Somewhat short, easy holes, and not enough woods comes into play.
Other Thoughts: The park itself is worth the visit, but if your only coming to play disc golf you might be dissappointed. I kept expecting to see some woods holes as I started out, but I did not encounter any untill I reached hole 15. By the time I did the course was pretty much over. I understand that there are only som many areas that parks will allow disc golf courses, but it almost would have been better if a better spot had been found.
