Pro Tip: Avoid the King Cobra on the Cart Path

King Cobra South Africa Golf Course

With the Nedbank Golf Challenge teeing it up in South Africa this week, there’s been a series of photos and clips, posted by players and the tour, showing off Africa’s wild creatures.

Well, this one, posted by Sky Sports golf analyst, and former player, Andrew Coltart, is the scariest of them all. A King Cobra appears to be fending off a mongoose on the edge of some woodsy area on what appears to be a cart path.

The Euroepan Tour’s Instagram account reposted Coltart, and captioned, “⚠️ ? Note to all players: Avoid the rough at all costs!”

Some commenters are claiming this was filmed at the Atlantic Beach Golf Club in Cape Town S.A., and not Sun City.

Um, thanks, but no thanks, for the travel tip. As if!
