I've seen rabbits, squirrels, turkeys, ducks, geese, hawks, and deer. The deer were probably the coolest, since I see them the least often.

Geese
Turtles
Copperhead- between 5th and 6th hole there is a concrete bridge that sticks about 2 feet above the creek water... he hangs out under there.
Beavers have it dammed up just downstream think that's why they like it there.

Last weekend had 5 Tom turkey wander right across the cart path if front of me and had to wait to tee off as a doe with 2 fawn walked across the fairway.

Deer, squirrel, snake (harmless), Blue Heron, Chicken Hawk, Bass, Carp, Geese galore, and let us not forget the dreaded Gopher (a.k.a. - Varmint).

I was playing at Wright Patterson AFB last year, hit my ball in the middle of the fairway and drove to my friends ball in the rough. I saw some commotion out of the corner of my eye, turned and noticed a hawk in the fairway with his talon grasping my ball. I yelled, "Don't even effin think about it bird!", and it flew away leaving my ball where it was. Dayum ball steeling bastid!

I ran into this snake when I was looking for my drive in the woods. He was over 6 feet long.

If I had known at the time it was harmless king rat snake, I would have taken more (and better) pictures.

The ones with babies (such as the one you took pictures of) are the most dangerous animal on the course.

I guess they love our course and the people who play there because they will come right up to you and grab popcorn right from your hand. its pretty hilarious.

Our course is built right in the middle of the city, it's not a part of a wood or something so there are no animals except for crows. And I've seen a bat one time. Other than that there is nothing.

I killed a baby duck by accident. The ball caught him right in the head, ugly sound. I felt all kinds of bad, especially when the momma was whimpering over it. It was all twitching....man, why'd you make me remember that??

There's these crazy people that live in the bushes on the 15th hole of my home course. They also bathe in the lake in front of the green. So freaky...

Can anybody top a monkey? I started playing golf in Kenya and our home course was full of them. The cutest thing was seeing a baby monkey attached to the mother monkey on her belly, just wrapping its arms and legs around its mom. They're so common that the course's symbol is the monkey.

    • HRV points toward recovery more than sleep from what I have seen. My sleep is always high but my recovery may or may not be. 101, nice! I was talking to a friend of mine and his is always high. He showed me a screenshot from yesterday and it was 115.  I made it a point to look at my strain this morning when I woke up but before I got moving around much. It was 0.0 as well so I believe you’re correct on hitting the heart rate threshold. I have just never looked at it that quickly. 
    • If you are 'old' you will surely be familiar with the pre 2019 definition of 'Lost Ball'. The new version says  Lost/1 – Ball May Not Be Declared Lost A player may not make a ball lost by a declaration. A ball is lost only when it has not been found within three minutes after the player or his or her caddie or partner begins to search for it. For example, a player searches for his or her ball for two minutes, declares it lost and walks back to play another ball. Before the player puts another ball in play, the original ball is found within the three-minute search time. Since the player may not declare his or her ball lost, the original ball remains in play.
    • I'm in the same boat as Dave. We golf together often, go to sporting events together and it's all about the grand children when it comes to sports and sporting activities. I did vote for "Other"
    • Plumbrook is short and none too difficult. But a fun course to play and go try to hit bombs all day. If you really play it to score (For me long irons or fairway woods off the tees for well placed pitch and chip in opportunities) it can be an easy course to score on. Greens are usually in good shape and roll true. I lived very close to Chandler Park until I got married in '91 at the age of 32. I used to play 9 in the morning on my way to work on those long days close to the summer solstice.
    • How to get rid of the stuff, that is the question I have. I don't feel like just throwing out my stuff but the thought of selling, packaging and shipping is not appealing. Plus I don't think my stuff is worth anything really. At last count I had 11 putters, 6 drivers, three sets of irons, and an untold number of wedges, chippers, hybrids, etc. Is there a place you can donate to?
