About this book

For many, golf courses are sanctuaries where one can enjoy a few hours of relaxation away from the demands of day-to-day life. Courses in the southern California desert region are also sanctuaries for wildlife. This beautifully illustrated guide Golf Course Wildlife: Southern California Desert Region highlights over 140 familiar and unique species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies/insects and desert plants and also features a regional map and information on the unique ecosystems in this area. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, pocket-sized folding guide is an excellent source of portable information for golfers of all ages.
