Playing a glow round last weekend. The rest of my card took a "recreational" break after our drives, so I headed up in the dark to check out our lies. Seconds later five deer cut across the fairway directly behind me and circled around then up the next fairway. Freaked the crap out of me.

Definitely a rarity in these parts. Saw him swimming down the creek of the course we're working on as we were playing a round.

Is that a beaver? I've never seen one on the course, but we do have a few that live on the rivers here in Ohio.

Why are your baskets so big? Does it make it easier to make the hole? Do you guys have more aces? Curious why they are that way.... is the PDGA not in your country, or is that a PDGA approved basket?

Sure looks to be a beaver. I've heard of them being in parts of North Texas, but this is the first time I've actually seen one. We've had a lot of rain and the creek is up a lot. One of the guys in our group spotted him swimming down the creek. I have no idea where he would actually live at, or how many others are around. They probably wouldn't normally get down to the course because the creek is usually much shallower and without much of a current.

I used to see lots of beavers around the Dallas area in the mid 80's. Used to be a lot of beaver ponds along 35 around Carrolton or just past on the west side of the hwy. Lots of beavers, big basses and crappie out there. Would be nice if they were still there.
