Saw a pretty sweet barred owl at Barber Park the other day.

we make the guy who throws the worst hole wear a reindeer hat for the next hole every now and again. Well, we did anyway... until one particularly angry guy threatened to throw it in the lagoon.

One of my friends found a dead body on hole 7 at Grand Woods Park in Lansing. Does that count?

I think that would freak me the hell out worse than that rattle snake did.

we're lousy with red tail hawks. There is a family of them that live on number 8.
The last five or six times I have been out, I see one with a poor squirrel pinned to the ground ripping out the tree rat's throat.

We also have a racoon that runs between 18 and 9 every evening near sunset.

you also see the occasional groundhog near our creek.
not bad for a "city" course.

A bunch of had just T'd off at one of the local courses (Stilicum) when this ruckus came from the left by hole 18. It was a dog chasing a lone racoon. Before we knew the racoon was up in the tree and the dog was trying to do the same. We convinced the owner his dog was better off leaving the racoon alone. All had was my camera phone with me at the time so the picture is not the best.

I also had an encounter when I tried taking a picture of an owl, but he looked at me as though he was going to have me for breakfast so I decided to leave him be....

Part of me wants to knock about 6.0 the ratings of courses with grizzly bears and mountain lions. If I wanted to risk my life I'd take up extreme sports.

Ah, but those courses tend to be in beautiful places where I have to add 6.0 back, just for the scenery.


In our recent tournament a guy was putting from a creekbed when a snake slithered down the bank between his feet. He and the snake did a terrific 5 second dance between the snake had enough, dove in the creek and left. The player then missed his put; something about an adrenaline hangover.

(Didn't get a good look but almost certainly a non-poisonous snake....but they still do lots of ligament damage).

I've seen these guys quite a few times at Rankin. That's one of the cooler things about my home course. It's a great place to see some different birds.
