This gator certainly ranks as one of the largest we've ever seen on a golf course.

We've all seen plenty of shots of alligators on golf courses. We haven't, however, seen many gators as huge as the one that Charles Helms encountered at Palmetto Creek Golf Course in Palmetto, Florida, the other day. 
Even better, he got video of it as it tromped across the links.
Helms and his playing partner watched the beast with the appropriate awe – and from an appropriate distance – and even joked that it looked like two guys in an alligator suit. They estimated its length at 15 feet.
What a beauty that thing is – you can almost feel the ground shake each time a foot hits the ground. Check out the video below and, if you missed them, here are some links to several of our previous alligator-related posts:
