A “good size” bobcat was photographed recently at a Florida golf course, leading WINK News meteorologist Matt Devitt to remark via X: “Golfing in Florida is always full of surprises.”
The image atop this post, credited to Bo Jackson, is a reminder that bobcats, like coyotes, sometimes hunt on golf courses.
The bobcat was prowling the range at The Sanctuary Golf Club and the image is reminiscent of a wild scene captured on video last January at Silver Leaf Country Club in Arizona.
The accompanying footage, captured by the River Pig Saloon, shows a bobcat hunting ducks around one of the greens, using steep bunkers as cover before launching a successful ambush attack.

“Oh, he got one!” someone in the group exclaims as the bobcat leaps from the bunker, scattering the flock, as other golfers react giddily.
Viewers will have to click to a second video segment on the Instagram post if they wish to see the bobcat securing and running off with its feathery prize.
