Giant Alligator Roams Golf Course in Florida

In case you were wondering, the biggest alligator ever recorded in Florida was 14 feet long, weighing 780 pounds.

Talk about a hazard! A giant alligator took a stroll across the fairway, making his way to the lake beside the third hole at Buffalo Creek Golf Club.  Golfer Charles Helms took the video at the Buffalo Creek Golf Club in Palmetto, Florida. While it has been shared by several credible news sources, such as Time and The Guardian, many viewers were skeptical about the footage and claimed that it was a “CGI” alligator.  However, the footage — like the alligator —  is real. You can see how big the gator is when another man got a closer look.   Course employee Wendy Schofield said that the enormous reptile frequents the golf course and has become the club’s unofficial mascot.   In case you were wondering, the biggest alligator ever recorded in Florida was 14 feet long, weighing 780 pounds.

“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,” pro shop clerk Wendy Schofield told News 3. “He doesn’t bother anybody and they don’t bother him. …””

It is not uncommon to spot alligators roaming the golf courses in Florida. Another huge alligator earned fifteen minutes of social media fame when it strolled across a golf course in Englewood, Florida, in March 2015.  See for yourself, just check out this video clip!!
