    Is that doable? If so, I will try it.

    OK, so, apparantly, it is smokeable...Anyway, after trying it, I played a round on WC with a friend. It seemed like I was seeing things, but you be the judge. Hole number 1, Wolf Creek, the rock outcropping behind the green. I could swear it looked like the one of the great Sphynx' of Giza..

    The first pic is untouched. The second is a close-up with some highlights added. Now, compare it to the third picture...what do ya' think?

    Here is it, cropped with nothing added, just as you see it on WGT..

    Either there is a sphynx on Wolf Creek or the venom is not as smokeable as I first thought.

     How many Sphinx' do you think there are in total, in Giza?

    Does yours have a riddle also?

    Inquiring mind wants to know......

    It's not smoke... It's vapor, if it's done right. So they say

    I do not know how many in Giza. I know that the one in the photo above is known as "The Great Sphinx of Giza" I presume there must be more than one, other wise, why not just call it "The Sphinx of Giza", right?

    Overall, there must be thousands in Eqypt. There are 900 alone along the avenue leading to the temple of Karnak, in Thebes.

    I do not know about a riddle, but the one on WC has a warning:

    Loosely translated:

    Those who go seeking birdies, that soar, will lose their balls and wish they had a duck in their bag. (Note the birds, the balls with "X", the duck and the bag). Surprisingly, unlike other scrawling, this one was easy to decipher.

    Oops, so, maybe I did it wrong...

    1. Bird (notice no "in flight symbol). In addition, the bell in lower left adds jubilation (ala ringing of the bell) signifying the bird of importance, as in 1 under par for the hole, which is denoted by the ancient symbol of the cup to lower right.

    2. A golf ball. As depicted here, and is often the case in Giza, the ball of choice was a "MAX".

    3. Here is a disciple of the game, looking towards the heavens. In conjunction with the "&" symbol, below the circle; and

    4. Another bird (although not of the same feather). The combination of 3 and 4 signify a bird soaring above;

    5. This is a duck. If it looks like a duck.....; and

    6. This is a golf back. The slight oval indentation which precedes denotes that the bag is no longer available.

    Finally, the symbols below the circle 6, are the falling axe and  a genderless figure. This is the warning. It is a curse to everyone, regardless of gender.

     

    EDIT: I could be wrong.

    I'm pretty sure #4 is a roadrunner, and #5 is a great egret.  Both are found in the Mesquite, NV area where Wolf Creek is located.
