I have multiple carry permits from all over the US and what I own could be called an arsenal. I have never brought a gun to the course for protection.

The only courses where I ever have brought guns out to were courses deep out in the mountains. The guns I bring out aren't for protecting against gang members, they are in case I run into mountain lions, bears, or rattlesnakes on the course.

Seems like a beveled-edge driver would be more effective than a pistol for dealing with rattlers.

Not a .410 gauge pistol. Excellent snake weapon.

Out working on a friends property I've had to take down a couple of rattlers. I can take the head clean off at about 5yds with my 9.

Sugaw is definitely more than a bit sketch.
A few years ago during The Iron Man, the bench by hole 11 was wrapped in crime scene tape.
A buddy of mine had someone show a pistol in his belt. He reported it to the cop in the parking lot and the guy with the gun got busted before he got out of the park.
Hole 12's fairway is known as condom alley.

Up until the robbery last weekend, I had no problem playing there alone. I'll probably play elsewhere if alone, at least for a while.

It used be called hooker alley when the course went in. I guess if people are gone and only their personal affects remain, one could argue that the course is being cleaned up step by step due to the DG course being there.
