Substantiation of this Report is minimal, at best; there are no published reports of encounters and/or sightings for Orange County on the BFRO website. However, there is a sighting report from April 2001 on the Bigfoot Encounters[1] website, which took place at Irvine Lake, approximately twenty miles (20mi, or 32km) to the north. Another report, from April 2008, is posted on the Oregon Bigfoot website,[2] which took place in San Clemente, again, approximately twenty miles (20mi, or 32km) to the southeast.

Some historical evidence, mainly anecdotal, suggests the existence of EC in the Santa Ana Mountains, which range across much of Orange County, and which are still heavily wooded. The creature, affectionately nicknamed “Santiago Sam” was first reported and/or sighted in 1924, with sporadic sightings since that time.[3]

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:

  1. The sound of heavy movement through the brush;
  2. The sighting, albeit a fleeting one, of something large and dark, in the brush;
  3. The statement made by my brother, about deer not walking on two legs.[4]

Based upon these factors, it is reasonable to suggest the presence of EC at the golf course, concealed in the heavy brush and scrub oak of the canyon, particularly at the first green. A golf course positioned in such an environment, only utilised during daylight hours, may be proposed as an excellent habitation site, and would have plenty of water and shelter available. The canyon is alive with wildlife (rattlesnakes notwithstanding); I have seen, several times, Southern Mule Deer (Odocoileus hemionus fuliginatus)[5] crossing the fairways, completely unheeding of the golfers…or their golf balls!

A number of subjective events also occurred at the golf course; while these cannot be considered conclusive evidence of EC, they cannot be discounted in their entirety. Nonetheless, they may be considered as peripheral, and therefore possibly pertinent, to the physical, visual, audible and olfactory events outlined above.

[4] It did not occur to me, at the time, to question or clarify his statement; I did not want to say, aloud, what I thought I had observed and at the time, his remarks was taken, rather, as a corroboration of my own.
