This last one was just bad all around..hard to enjoy golf like this.
Due to the rashes developing fiercely on feet, knee, behind the knee, back, chest, chin, right wrist and neck from poison oak (likely from just one course..Lake Selmac in Ashland, OR)..I won't be playing any holes or courses that have it bad..so I had to skip a few drives today.
Ukiah, CA- Mendocino College:I don't know what to write about this course without undoubtedly offending some people. It's just plain un-enjoyable at least in this shape. The grass was 2-4' high, with this weed that acts like razor wire and actually cut my legs open to where they bled..just from walking up the FAIRWAY. The woods holes had poison oak right up to the baskets, in vine and tree form, several times so widespread you cannot avoid it. The tee pads are rock and dirt. Signs are temporary and don't show the hole or next tee, and the tees have no directionality-hard to tell which way to throw! I threw the wrong way completely on #3 because the real basket was tucked JUST out of sight, as were about 6 baskets, and you might already know I despise that design aspect. Several woods holes were just silly tight..forcing unusual throws that MUST get lucky or cannot penetrate the woods. Hot, limited shade and very windy. Hard to find the course once there, it's behind the school from the parking lot. Several nice holes similar to what you might find at Hudson Mills though. One over-pond shot. Not fun for me, but I'm sure some people like it.
