Played at a course in Tampa Bay, Florida many years ago when an alligator strolled across the fairway. Needless to say we were not attempting to retrieve our balls from the water that day.

I didn't think about that. We see alligators so often in southeast texas that we've learned to check the area before getting close to any water. My first experience with an alligator was sort of funny, though. I was playing 18 at "The Palms" at Pleasure Island in Port Arthur, TX, when we see an 8-footer with 1 front leg lifted and standing perfectly still. We actually thought that it was a statue because we were golfing noobs and hadn't seen a gater on a course. My buddy throws a golf ball at it and the gater takes off back to the pond. We both run screaming like school girls back to the cart and got the hell outta dodge!!
I was playing in AZ with my dad and girlfriend at the time......my girlfriend hit a worm-burner that hit a duck square about 50 yards away and obviously hurt its leg pretty badly (it waddled into the nearby lake).....she was immediately in tears and me, being an as&hole, couldn't stop laughing for about 10 minutes....
