NAPLES, Fla. — Nothing says Florida quite like tropical storms and alligators.

A southwest Florida golf course got a dose of both Wednesday as Tropical Storm Eta meandered in the Gulf of Mexico.

Video shared on the Valence Golf & Country Club's Facebook page shows a behemoth gator "enjoying the tropical conditions" while taking a leisurely stroll along one of the greens.

Tyler Stolting, a former golf professional at the club, recorded the video as the massive gator appeared to be headed for a water hazard.

That'll be a one-stroke penalty, big boy.
