Coyote Spotted on the Country Club Golf Course

CORPUS CHRISTI - Residents have spotted coyotes out at Shea Parkway and Saratoga. People have also seen a few out at the Corpus Christi Country Club Golf Course. But golfers tell us, they don't mind sharing the course with them.

Two coyotes have been seen roaming the fairway at the Country Club Golf Course. In the past week, golfers say they've seen them just about every day.

"They're not afraid to be out here. They're not gonna come up to ya, and they're centrality not trying to hurt ya," said Doug DeSive. He is the Head Golf Professional. He is out on the course every day.

DeSive says he normally sees two coyotes out on the range or out on the 9th Fairway. He says, they tend to keep to themselves.

"From what we see, they tend to be more scared of us than we are of them. So, no they avoid us. They're not coming up and wanting to chew your leg off or anything. It's nothing like that," said DeSive.

Golfers who've seen them running around on the course, say they're not overly concerned with them.

"They look like dogs. I mean they're nothing vicious. They didn't make any noise, they just kind of walked up the fairway and did their thing," said Sal Iacono.

As a matter of fact, some golfers say they like them.

"They do keep some of the other smaller animals in check... Groundhogs or things that will tear up the grass," said Iacono.

The Head Golf Pro says if more show up, eventually the club will have to do something about them. But until then, golfers will just have to learn how to share the green with some new friends.
