Golfer films as giant gator invades Florida golf course

Florida golf courses, it seems to be, are a natural ‘walk in the park’ for gators. So it must not have surprised the bejeezus out of golfers at the Buffalo Creek Golf Course when a giant, pre-historic predator calmly made his way across the greens. While this could bring goose prickles to the unfamiliar ones, the Florida golfers took this one sportingly and went on to film the activity.

The video footage surely shows some daredevilry as golfers David Matos and Charles Helms filmed the pitch invasion. But the gator seemed completely oblivious to the fact that there was actual, human-prey out there for taking. He seemed to be rather well-fed and rested. One may wonder what provoked the golfers’ courage to shoot something like this instead of just packing up and scurrying away.

“A better question might be, how can you not record it?” said Helms. “It is widespread to see alligators on a Florida golf course, and they’re typically not a threat to golfers; wild alligators are shy and will not bother you unless you provoke it or corner it, so it feels threatened.”
