Encountered this snake on the first hole of the golf course.  Anybody know what kind of snake this is?

There was no "hood", which makes me believe it is not a cobra.  All there wanted to believe it was a cobra, but I remain skeptical.

Picture of Philippine Cobra. The hood or flaring of the neck does not happen until they raise up.  They look the the same to me

It was definitely a Philippine Cobra, one of the most deadly and one of the few spitting cobras. They only flare their hood when distressed in order the make themselves look larger and more intimidating
