Please, do not try to get golf balls dropped in surrounding lakes and ponds because alligators live there and they usually stay underwater so they are hard to see.


If one comes out of a lake, STAY AWAY!!!  If you don't bother them, they won't bother you, well... at least most of the time. Also, if your ball lands near one, request help from the golf course personnel, do not get to close to them to retrieve it by yourself. They usually are not aggressive because they are accustom to people but they are wild animals, consequently they behavior could be unpredictable.
