The incident happened at Pelican Sound Golf & River Club in Estero. Marc Goldstein, 68, looked for his ball after his shot and found it right next to an alligator’s head.
Before he could snap a picture, it picked up the ball in its mouth. And after a few moments, it turned around and entered the pond.
This isn’t the first time Goldstein has encountered a dangerous reptile. As a hobby, he hunts for pythons in the everglades.
