I hear Queensland is the state with most snakes, though.

You'd best watch out when you hit a ball into the undergrowth . . . yeeouch, or worse!

Actually I saw more snakes when we lived in Thailand than I saw in Australia - and bigger ones too.

The 'lesson' I learned about trying to find a golf ball in the long grass is to make a lot of noice before walking in to look  (bang the ground with club)  then only walk in a straight line or a gentle curve. Most snake bites are because they think the person is trying to catch and eat them so dont walk all over the place - let them 'slide' qiuetly away from the direction where you are walkinjg.  And of course be quick about it and get out if not found quickly.   And dont hit it there in the first place :)
