Golfer Films Two Large Alligators Fighting On South Carolina Golf Course

A golfer managed to get an unwanted glimpse into the hierarchy of nature when he spotted two alligators locked in a fight to the death on a golf course in South Carolina.

The fight, which - in case you're interested - took place on the 18th hole, saw the two reptiles locked in seemingly mortal combat at the Hilton Head Lakes golf club in Hardeeville last week.

Golfers observed that the gator rumble continued on for two hours, with the bout being definitely one for the purists, as each of the animals tried to overpower the other using their powerful and formidable jaws.

At one stage, one of the creatures can be seen to bite the other, which causes its opponent to bite it on the head.

So, on and on it went, with neither animal giving nor asking for any quarter. Neither willing to give up, or take a backwards step.

We don't actually know what the result of the match was, but it's fair to say that both animals showed significant stamina to last the distance, as it went on for several hours.

The footage was taken by Matthew Proffitt, who was just out for a casual round with his mates when he spotted the animal brawl.

He then shared the footage to YouTube via Storyful on Sunday, but the golf course also shared the video with a warning to golfers to keep their eyes open for the many and varied creatures that obviously roam their fairways.

Proffitt told local news station KCPQ: "They would lay still for a few minutes, with their jaws locked on each other, and then try to roll or shake.

"The fight went on for about two hours,"

While alligators aren't exactly rare around that particular part of the world, Proffitt said that he'd never seen one on this golf course until that day.

Like waiting for a bus, am I right?

As mentioned earlier, the course wrote a message to golfers on their Facebook page that included the warning: "Sudden death playoff on the 18 yesterday! Keep your eyes open out there, the course is full of wildlife!"

It's well documented that even amateur golfers are pretty strict about the rules, even if they are just out for a round with friends, but we can probably lay down a rule now that covers your ball landing within striking distance of two alligators locked in a fight to the death.

You can have a free drop.
