A pack of about 20 mongooses ran onto the green on November 10 at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, South Africa during the European Tour’s Nedbank Golf Challenge. Though the animals ran past the in-play golf balls, none were disturbed.
Golf’s intersection with wildlife on the golf course mostly yields a pleasant interaction. We expect to see alligators in the Southeast. Same goes with snakes in the west, or deer in the Northeast, Golf Digest reported.
So with the European Tour playing in Sun City, South Africa this week, tour players might’ve expected to encounter some exotic animals. During a tournament round on November 10 at Gary Player Country Club during the European Tour’s Nedbank Golf Challenge on the Race to Dubai, a pack of 20 mongooses ran onto a green to greet this group. The animals didn’t even touch the golf balls sitting on the green—they just ran right past, Golf Digest reported.
