Gator Golf: Giant Alligator Appears on Fla. Course

Several golfers were playing a round at the Myakka Pines Golf Club in Englewood, Florida, last week when they discovered a new hazard: a massive alligator on the seventh green. Two senior members snapped photos of the gator on March 6, general manager Mickie Zada told NBC News. Zada said he thinks the gator was only 12-13 feet long — the largest ever reported was nearly 20 feet, according to National Geographic — but one golfer's photo makes it "looks like a dinosaur," Zada said.
