USGA Summary Points:Reptile species vary in their use of golf course features, but most species tend to avoid open fairways. We have observed a greater abundance of reptiles using thick, irrigated vegetation adjacent to fairways and greens. The placement and layout of the golf course helps to determine the distribution of reptiles, and certain species alter their distributions to take advantage of irrigated vegetation and natural areas that are incorporated into the golf course as hazards or rough. Using radiotelemetry and florescent powder tracking, we have determined that Gila monsters tend to avoid open fairways, and tend to utilize irrigated areas along the edges of the golf course out of proportion to their availability.
