Default poison ivy............

what does everyone think about adding a place in the course reviews on poison ivy.....i drove 60 miles to play this last weekend with my wife and two kids and was disappointed to see all the poison everywhere....needless to say my oldest son got it all over his body somehow and i got a bit on my arms.....just think it might be a good add on to the course info....maybe a 1to 5 scale or something.

Yeah i agree, i went to a course that i had never played about three hours from where i live. When i got home i was itching really bad. In a couple of days i found out that i had it all over my body. I hate poison ivy, and i know one thing, and that is that i will never go back to that course.

I'm completely for this. I love the outdoors (hiking, backpacking, etc.) so I know what poison ivy looks like. However, it doesn't look the same everywhere. I just made this mistake. I lost a disc in the woods and went after it. Now I'm covered in poison ivy, on steroids, and suffering a little bit of pyschosis from the drugs...feel completely miserable right now.

I always include it in my reviews (poison oak out here on the west coast). As someone who is very allergic, it is worth putting in there.

i think it's fairly new, maybe a year...but yeah, the poison ivy is attacking that course, it's creeping up #3's basket, which sucks cause it's aceable for sure, i've hit one ace on it
