In the Rough – Golf Rules
A player has five minutes to look for a ball before it is deemed lost. Add a one stroke penalty if you can’t find it. Add a good measure of guilt and a big tip if you find your ball in poison ivy and ask your caddy to retrieve it.
No Free Lie for Poison Ivy
According to Decision 1-4/11, Rules of Golf, players are not entitled to a free lie for balls that land in poison ivy, cacti or stinging nettles. Officials ruled that, although unpleasant, these plants are “a common occurrence which players must accept.” Subsequent whining or bawling out the groundskeeper is just bad form.

Poison ivy’s oily resins stick to almost any surface including golf clubs, balls, shoes and clothing. Golf etiquette says you should warn your buddies that your ball and clubs have been contaminated with poison ivy before proceeding with play. Games won by purposely contaminating your opponent with a painful rash are ill-gotten and should be considered void by all honorable participants.
