What's a scarier site on a golf course: an enormous alligator ambling across the green on the hole you're playing or reaching down into the cup to grab your ball and see a snake head peeking through the hole for the flagstick?
Well, you could probably make the case for the snake, especially after seeing what Deerwood Golf Course superintendent Ed Martinez saw when changing cups on Monday morning.

That's definitely a good reason to go ahead and let the hole location stay the same from Sunday.
Sometimes, snakes slither into a hole and house themselves there, maybe to stay warm. But this is a first to see a snake find its way partially into the cup from under the ground.
