Wildlife on the golf course.

I have heard of an Albatross but not an alligator :0(

I have seen that image - I wonder if the club has special rules to cover issues with the alligator? In Australia there are many courses with quite large numbers of kangaroos, and this one in Africa (Limpopo)has giraffes...

If it is directly in the line of your putt I believe that you are allowed to move the ball as long as it is not closer to the hole.

Wouldn't be just the ball I'd be moving -

taking great steps in the opposite direction.

  bumpkin 15:31 13 Mar 2015

You would probably forfeit the hole in that case:-)

Better than being eaten whole

Sporting injuries are not uncommon, best not to play if unwilling to take a few minor risks:-)

Personally, I'd still try to putt but I'd make it snappy.

(Sorry, someone had to say it)

At least it was wearing spikes on the green.
