I've never seen a coral snake on the wild.
Glad you all 3 of you made it a non-incident.

I used to teach an interactive intro to herpetology class for an outdoor ed program, and we had coral snakes on our 1,100 acre property (among many other venomous and non-venomous snakes), here's a few fun facts about coral snakes:

They are much less aggressive than their other venomous counterparts (water moccasin/cottonmouth, copperhead, and most rattlesnakes which are not really that aggressive hence the rattle so you'll just leave them alone).

They are the only North American venomous stake that uses neurotoxin instead of hemotoxin (affects the nervous system and paralyzes your muscles, including your diaphragm; hemotoxins clot your blood and stop your heart)

They have lil heads compared to other snakes, so if you really harass one enough to where it will try to bite you (please don't they're generally kind and gentle) it can really only do real damage if it gets you between the fingers or toes. Your arms and legs are too broad for it to get a good bite.

Bonus fun fact: baby snakes are more dangerous than adult snakes because they can't regulate their venom, so they just inject it all at once

I got pretty lucky a few years ago. There is a private course near hear called Cabin Creek that hosts Memorial and Labor Day events. One year it was raining and I had my boots on or I woulda got lit up by a young copperhead.

My approach shot landed next to a dry creek bed in a low area carved out by flash floods and was filled with weeds. I found my disc and drained my 20ft par putt. When I bent down to grab my disc, I noticed the little guy next to my right foot. I stood there for a minute or so cause I knew what it was the instant I saw it and I didn't know what to do. I tried sliding my foot back hoping he might still be asleep since it was kinda chilly with the rainy morning. As soon as my foot moved he struck and luckily caught the thick part of my boot around the top and then slithered away.

Scared the crap out of me and I jumped up on the green and took my boot off just to make sure...*insert"Whew"meme*

Or as I learned it:
Red touches yella, stay away fella
Red touches black, it's okay Jack.

Of course, it's just as easy to reverse them so I never found it that helpful ("okay fella?" "stay away Jack?"). Yours seems easier not to mess up since in one case it refers to the snake as the fellow and the other refers to the person as Jack.

There's seemingly no end to variations of this.
I learned:

Red on black, friend of Jack.
Red on yellow, kill a fellow.

Also:

Red touch Jack, good for Jack
Red touch yellow, kill a fellow

It has stayed with me since Cub Scouts.

Yep. Red on yellow can kill a fellow.
Red on black, you can pat him on the back.

Like I said, there's no end. You can make the damn things up...

There once was a literary hack.
Saw a snake colored yellow on black.
Picked it up rather mellow...
"You're not dangerous fellow.
Red on yellow means adios, Jack."

So for crying out loud, will somebody please post a picture of a flooded course or mangled basket already?
