swamp golf

So my mom calls me up this Sunday evening, to say hi
and see what I've been up to, and starts telling this
little story.

"So, we went to my mom's today, and your dad and my
brothers went out to play golf in the swamp."
"In the swamp? They have golf down there?"
"Oh yeah, it gets better though. It had just rained,
so the greens were all pretty wet and swampy still.
On the second hole, a nutria runs across the hole as
they go to tee off, and on the next one, a four foot
alligator wanders onto the green. They just kept
on playing."

I thought croquet was bad, this just takes the cake.

I do something much more true to the name "Swamp Golf" with some friends of mine. We go out in our Jeeps and play golf in the actual swamps here in Florida. Your foursome decides on a target (say the base of a tall tree that is visable from far away) and let it fly. Better bring a lot of old balls though. Lots of hazards on natures course.
You have to watch out for gators, snakes, spiders, scorpions and of course the widely feared Florida Skunk Ape.
