We've seen a fair amount of nature on the golf course this fall as the various golf tours have traveled around the world.

A few weeks ago at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia, we were treated to the fear of a 6-foot python on the course as well as the more fun, yet equally concerning, komodo dragon hanging out near one player's ball.

At Thursday's round of the the Nedbank Golf Challenge being held in South Africa, golfers were treated to a little less treatening — and quite humorus — encounter with animals on the course as a pack of mongooses (or mongeese, if you prefer) made their way across the green. 

 

 

Clearly, these mongooses are well versed in the etiquette of golf as they made their way past the ball without disturbing it. We'll give them a pass on walking in the line of the putt.
