Pond - Preserve of Spruce Creek Golf Course


This is a look at the 11th green from the 12th tee box at the Preserve of Spruce Creek. I've been told there used to be an alligator hiding in these waters but I've never seen it. A few weeks ago, I read a newspaper article describing how a bear had come out of the woods surrounding this community to do some damage to the gutters of a house. I've never seen a bear here, either.

I can imagine a gator in those waters...

I have a nearly professional ball retriever. It might come in handy here.

My parents had a house on a golf course just south of Palm Springs, Fl. There were gators there, and the course was off limits after sunset. Golfers were to keep their distance if they spotted a gator. I would as those beasts are quick for a short distance.

Nice reflection!

That's a very dangerous sounding golf course that you play!

Bibi said...

Someone had an evil sense of planning to put a golf course next to that body of water! How many little white balls lie at the bottom? ;)

They all sound like stories to get you to visit

It looks pretty with the flag reflected in the water. If you do encounter an alligator or a bear there, you'll have to get his photo!

I'd believe the gator story, but a bear attacking gutters? Now, that's a stretch. I can't even think of a pun for it.

Sharon said...

I think you should be thankful you haven't seen either! I had no idea a game of golf could be so adventurous.

Alligators and bears, Oh my! Makes for some interesting golfing.

Now that would be quite the hazard for a golf course.
I much prefer seeing cats in windows than bears in gutters :)

Yes, of course I meant to say Palm Beach. It was never my favorite place, but I did enjoy the warmth and the fresh citrus.

RedPat said...

It's a wild place! ;-)

Only alligators and bears? No poisonous snakes or piranhas? How boring! Well, at least there is a red flag, I like it! :)

Kay said...

How about Venus fly traps? Quicksand? Is that why they call things hazards on golf courses? Are they called hazards??

Thanks for the article on the Canadian "camps." I had no idea, though honest accounts of history that I've read have all alluded to nasty anti-immigration practices with Jews. It's no wonder the Nazis had such a field day since Jews couldn't emigrate.

Don't look--don't see.
I am going to stay right here.

Golf in Florida sounds like a very scary game!

I don't know whether to feel bad for you or happy for you that you haven't seen any of that wildlife there!
