Best to just leave the wildlife be on the golf course. At home, however, especially if it involves snakes.... that's a different story.
Went to work one morning and got a call from my wife, screaming at me to come home immediately... fortunately I worked about a 5 minute drive from my house at the time. Apparently there was a huge snake on our cement patio out back, and she was afraid to let the kids out to play.
I get home and sure enough - there's a huge freaking black snake sunning itself on our back patio. I tried to just scare it away, but black snakes don't scare easily, and can be very confrontational. And this sucker was quite large, about 5 feet long. So I ended up grabbing a shovel and had to kill it, then threw it into the brush in the back of the property. Then went back to work. lol
I absolutely hate snakes... I treat them all as poisonous. And I know having a couple of harmless garden snakes around helps control the moles and rodents, etc... but still... I just don't like snakes. Never have and never will.
