Here are some random photos of wildlife found on golf courses in Florida. Feel free to add on your shots.


Gator babies. Mummy's lurking under the bridge we were on.


Raccoon


Iguana. This one's as long as my Driver.




Not sure if this is a cormorant or an egret





My neighbour:




And when I was in Australia:


Birds at Hyatt Coolum.

I like Coolum. Very nice course. Nice blend of tough and easy holes.

Was stationed in QLD for cumulative of 3+ years so played pretty much most of the nice courses from Coolangatta to Noosa.

No. Somehow I was always tied up with work during that week. Its only a 2 1/2hr drive away from where I'm at though. Managed to play it a week after the tournament so got to try out some 'tournament conditions'.

Reminds me of Happy Gilmore.

The only wildlife I've seen are:

1. A water snake at MBGC
2. Monkeys at Ponderosa (Chocoman excluded)
3. A freakin' huge spider at Fraser's Hill Golf Course
4. A hen at Legends
5. A huge monitor lizard, also at Ponderosa

TS have you forgotten the many fashionably dressed alligators, buayas, and crocodiles moving around in groups of four?

I didn't. I just didn't want to say anything because I always believe that he who points out the buayas is likely a buaya himself Smile *grin*

The monkeys probably play better than me.
