    Imagine spotting this dinosaur-like creature as you make your way to the seventh hole.

    This massive alligator is said to be the newest resident of the Myakka Pines Golf Club in Englewood, Fla.

    Mickie Zada, manager of the club, says it's not at all uncommon to spot gators on the course which is built on a former swamp. At one point, Zada says wildlife officials counted 157 species of birds at the golf facility.

    This particularly large gator appears to have taken up residence at the club's white course on the seventh hole.

    Zada says the photograph was taken on Friday and posted on Saturday.

    Since then, the photo has been shared almost 5,000 times on Facebook.
