Local Wildlife

The wildlife at the Pinery is very extensive and beautiful, we have seen the American Bald Eagle to Prairie Antelope and many more. It goes to show you that golf courses are a haven for wildlife not a deterrent. The hard part is getting pictures and being at the right place and the right time. The snap shots below are just a small inventory of the wildlife we were able to freeze in time.

American Bald Eagle
Mostly seen in late winter, a rare sight but we see them every winter

A young Red Fox
We see these little guys all summer
They even steal our members golf balls off the greens

Large Whitetail Buck
This trophy buck was on the Mountain course one late evening

Whitetail Deer
These Whitetail's were out after a rain storm
We see these all year

Red Tail Hawk
This guy was huge at least 3 feet tall
Just scoping out the native for some lunch
