I just started playing a few months ago. Tonight was a VERY odd and a bit scary ha. I was teeing off and a bear came out of the woods about 90 yards from me. What made this even more insane for me was that I am 36 and I have never seen a bear in my life until tonight! What about you ? What are some of your odd experiences? Anyone ever get hit by lightning etc
What is your strangest experience on a golf course?

On the first tee a couple of years ago, about ready to tee off when we hear a bunch of shouting......above us. A hot air balloon is coming right at us. Landed right on the box! Pilot apologized profusely. Seems that that was the only option he had at the time having somehow misjudged his altitude and was unable to get back up in time to avoid other obstructions.
I play a course that is bordered by a county park which is bordered by a local college....... It was early fall and we here on the 7th hole and we seen a bunch of clothes piled on the ground next to bushes. As we turned a corner about 15-20 college chicks and guys came streaking our of the bushes screaming like crazy.... Was the strangest but funniest thing I ever saw. I try to play that course every fall! :)
I played a few weeks ago on a very nice course that is in the woods. On about the 7th hole, there was a snapping turtle walking across the fairway. He was probably a foot and a half long. Walked on down and into the woods. The strange part was that this hole was elevated and there was no water with at least 500 yards of the spot he was at, so I'm not sure where he was coming from or going to.
I had seen several times young, very attractive females out there with tiny volleyball shorts on.... off topic, but your comment made me think of them.
