My wife took the picture of the hawk. She kept creeping closer and closer. I was sure he would fly away. You can see some fur in the claws. He was eating something and did not want to leave it. She also had her 35mm camera & long lense. We were still outside the circle - lol - if I recall.
If you were going to play it, you would have to do it soon before the good holes are gone, but you would need a guide because the flow is funky.
You are not missing much, the 14 hole lay out looks boring.
I have played 120 courses and it ranks in my top 3. the tee pads were the only complaint from my group ("they are uneven gravel"), but I do not think I listed it as a Con because I thought they were fine, plus they were clear tee pads instead of just toe boards and dirt, so I listed them as a Pro.
