Trying to Identify a log type. - 3 replies

I got this log the other day and am trying to identify what type of wood it it. I removed the bark and the texture under it on the outside of the tree is quite bumpy, the wood it self is very hard, with a light pink heartwood that turns quite red when staned and greyish sapwood. Can anyone help me identify it? It was on a golf course.
