Giant Gator Great for Golf Course Business
This giant gator may look frightening, but he’s great for business at the Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto, Florida.
He’s been at the public course for years. Think about it: Play a round of golf, check out one of the biggest alligators you’ve ever seen in your life. What a deal!
“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 in Las Vegas. “He doesn’t bother anybody and they don’t bother him. He’s like a mascot for the course.”
Best guess is this gator is around 15 or 16 feet long. Of course, no one is going to get close enough to measure the darn thing.
“The word has spread that this is a great place to come and play,” Schofield said. “He is the highlight, but we are worth the price too.”
That gator is definitely worth the $19 to $26 green fee — just don’t make him mad.
