A group of golfers got a little more excitement than they bargained for while playing the back nine at the Mangrove Bay and Cypress Links Golf Course in St. Petersburg.

Logan Ungerer and his buddies were approaching the 14th hole when they spotted something in the distance.

“I saw what looked like a stick blowing in the wind on the green,” Ungerer said.

It wasn’t exactly a stick.

Not even close.

“As I got closer I saw a bird picking at it and knew it was a snake,” he continued.

Would this be considered a ground hazard?

“It was definitely exhilarating. It’s not every day you see a huge rattlesnake on a green in Florida.”
