ENGLEWOOD, Fla. (CNN) – Remember the popular children’s game “Gator Golf?” It became a reality on a golf course in Florida this week.

The Myakka Pines Golf Club in Englewood posted a picture of a huge alligator walking across the green.

The owners say the course, which is south of Sarasota, was built on a former swamp, so wildlife isn’t unusual there.

The photo has been shared thousands of times on Facebook. The course owners told ESPN the picture could boost their business.
