Now THAT’s crazy golf: Moment 15ft crocodile strolls across fairway in front of golfers’ buggy in Mexico
- Huge crocodile was spotted by group of US tourists on golf course in Cancun
- Friends of the foursome were shocked after seeing their videos on social media
- Crocodiles far more aggressive than alligators, which are more common in US
This is the jaw-dropping moment a 15ft crocodile was filmed strolling across a golf course in Mexico.
In footage shared online by holidaymakers, the huge beast can be seen walking calmly past a putting hole on the fairway.
The nerve-wrecking video was taken at the Dreams Playa Mujeres golf resort near Cancun by Stacie Miller, from Chandler, Arizona, who was on holiday with husband Ryan and friends.
Ryan can be heard telling Stacie to ‘zoom in’ before asking if she is videoing the memorable moment.
Stacie can then be heard saying: ‘Go, go, go!’ as they get uncomfortably close to the crocodile.
The couple were riding in golf buggies with friends Alli and Barrett Hartman, from Arizona, when the four encountered the creature on July 5.
A man’s voice can be heard saying: ‘It’s gonna walk right where we need to go! Shall we drive past it real quick?’
The other man says: ‘We’re gonna be stuck here – do you want to go in front of it or do you wanna wait?’
Friends of the foursome were left shocked after seeing the video.
One wrote: ‘Wow that’s awesome and OML IT’S GINORMOUS!’
Another said: ‘I thought it was fake at first look, that’s nuts,’ and Stacie commented: ‘Yep, it was CRAZY.’

‘It’s ginormous!’: Friends of the tourists who shared the footage were stunned at the size of the beast, estimated to be 15ft
Another said: ‘I thought I lived in a country with deadly deadly animals, but never ever have I seen something like that.’
One joked: ‘What? He’s just going to work…hasn’t even had his coffee yet’, while another jibed: ‘Let him play through!’
It comes after a mammoth alligator spotted in Florida last year sent social media into a frenzy – with many claiming it was fake due to its size.
Crocodiles are often regarded as far more aggressive than alligators.
The latter are not as big and only attack when provoked, while seeking out prey which are smaller than them.
