Like to try golf in a more stimulating environment ? We have it in Florida :
You could make a lot of belts out of that critter but I suggest being heavily armed for your attempt ...
I can only imagine what the image on the article depicts, but I assume it's an alligator on the golf course. The question here is what score penalty is imposed if it eats your ball.
Here's the news article that linked to the video :
Okay thanks Petey, read the article and saw this photo:
I wouldn't go looking for a ball sliced into the rough on that course.
I used to go canoeing in a river in Tampa that had gators in it . And that was in an inflatable canoe . Scared the begeebers out of the girlfriend I went boating with .
That thing is a monster!!!
Notice how he is ambling along at a relaxed pace . And why not ?! There is nothing in his environs that would dare to challenge him !
The apex predator, and he knows it...
Now that's what I call a hazard.
At least a two stroke.
While working at Tyndall AFB in Panama City, we had an 18 hole course that was frequented by alligators, rattlers, pigmy rattlers, Kara-kara's and other miscellaneous critters. Hole 6, a par 3, always had a 10 - 12 footer lying on the green and the golfers, being used to it, went ahead and took their shots - some even hitting him. As soon as the golfers left the tee box, the 'gator would amble down to the pond in front of the green, watch the golfers do their thing, and then crawl back to his "sunning spot". He would occasionally eat a ball or two that landed in front of him - two stroke penalty to the golfer as they knew of the hazard but continued to play their shot.
Don't even know what a Kara-kara is, 1st, but the snakes would be enough to keep me away, let alone an alligator.
Florida has invasive species snakes , mostly pythons :
Years ago, I was doing an inspection of the Air Force Reserve Unit on NAS New Orleans and part of the safety brief? If you're out on the jogging trail and see a big log in the trail, steer clear.....most likely a gator......
What do ya do when a 15 ft. crock wants to play through?
Lol, that's awesome!
