A giant gator was spotted taking a stroll across the fairway, making his way to the lake at the Buffalo Creek Golf Club in Palmetto, Florida, last Wednesday.
The video was taken by Charlie Helms, and you can hear him say:
“That is the biggest freakin’ alligator I have ever seen in my life.”
Pro shop clerk Wendy Schofield told News 3, that this massive gator has been here for a very long time and it doenst bother anyone. Infact having him is actually good for their business.
“People have heard that he is out here and that is all they want to see so they will bring spectators to ride so somebody can get a picture” .
“He doesn’t bother anybody and they don’t bother him, he’s like a mascot for the course, which is owned by Manatee County.”
“He has been here for a very, very long time, he’s not new at all. There have been guesses that he’s 15 to 16 feet long,” the five-year employee said. “The word has spread that this is a great place to come and play. He is the highlight, but we are worth the price too.”
