Now That Requires a Bit Of Thought!

Real Estate Agent with Cherimie Crane & Associates

I couldn't help but see the irony while these two golfers at Parris Island contemplated a strategy for retrieving the ball that was located ever so close to a resting alligator.

Sometimes I feel like the best decisions in real estate, are those that first appear slightly hazardous!

A sight we do not see here in Texas unless it is alligator shoes that someone is wearing.  Great shot!  We only have to deal with a few snakes and early and late night coyotes, rabbits, skunks on the golf greens.  Occasionally a bobcat will set up house in the wooded area near a green.  Have a great Sunday!

That is certainly a different type of hazard or trap than usually found on the golf course. :)

Sand traps are one thing but that is one ball that I would probably walk away from.

Is that a hazard or an opportunity for new shoes, hand bag and matching luggage?

We have snakes too sometimes, but we are pretty used to the gators..it is the babies you have to watch because they are so curious and fast!


Funny thing is...these guys aren't even phased. They walked up and hit the ball as if big boy wasn't even there:)


I may agree with you!
