@DNA Thumbs drive,
Our local golf course is rare in that it isn't privately owned. The local council owns it and leases it to a golf club. There are loads of designated public footpaths zigzagging across the course in many places, which have been on the maps since the 16th century or earlier, and the woodland beyond is common land, owned essentially by the people and managed by the local Woodland Trust.
Two of our group regularly play golf (not me), and so we tend to know most of the golfers playing through as we wend our way, and we are all very meticulous when it comes to clearing up after our dogs while in the park and golf course.
In the spring, there is one part of the course where there is a view right down a mini valley which is the sixth hole.
There is a rabbit warren in the adjoining woods down at the far end, and more often than not there are a dozen or so rabbits out on the grass, near to the edge of the woods.
My dog (and my previous greyhound) goes barmy if there are rabbits out, and goes absolutely full pelt down the hill to get them, with the rest of our lolloping hounds trying in vain to keep up with him.
The rabbits see my express train about twenty seconds before he arrives, and all lope off down their nearest rabbit hole.
He comes back looking very pleased with himself, and satisfied that he has been allowed to do what he was bred to do for a couple of minutes.
It's nice to see him totally out of breath occasionally.
The biggest pack we ever ended up with was 22, when we just seemed to bump into dog walker after dog walker one day, and they just ended up tagging along. Again, not one single nasty dog, or any sign of aggro.
