VIDEO: Giant gator roams Manatee County golf course

Local News

PALMETTO, Fla. – Video captured a huge alligator roaming a Palmetto golf course earlier this month.

The gator is so large it hardly looks real. That’s why golfers noticed the massive creature and stopped what they were doing.

Officials at the Buffalo Creek Golf Course say this gator has been roaming the course for years. They even say he’s good for business since people want to catch a glimpse of the big boy.

One employee says he doesn’t bother anybody and they don’t bother him.

The biggest alligator ever recorded in Florida was 14-feet long, weighing 780 pounds.
