I’ve run into enough wildlife on golf courses to fill an ark. This zoo parade includes a three-legged alligator named Walter, deer, elk, coyotes, sheep, wild boars, bobcats, even a rattle snake or two.

I must admit, though, we never expected to see a crew of cows freely roaming one of the magnificent seaside links courses in Wales, the 6,500-yard, par 71 Aberdovey Golf Club (top photo).

Aberdovey dates back to 1886 and was the home course of Ian Woosman, the 1991 Masters champion and 2006 European Ryder Cup captain.

For much of our round, we rode herd, giving the cattle wide berth until reaching the par 5 13th hole. There, on the tee box, we came face-to-face with a future hunka, hunka of burning beef with a case of the major munchies (bottom photo).

Aberdovey Al, as we named him, seemed too busy at the munch counter to heed our urgings to “get along little doggie” and other cowpoke platitudes. He wouldn’t budge. Call us chicken, but for safety’s sake, we moved 20 yards down the fairway to tee off, shortening this par 5 to a puny 416 yards.

We knew these tee shots were the closest thing to “cattle drives” we’d ever experience…just thought I’d share.

GolfScript: Still bogeyed the damn hole--I am, after all, the Bogeyville Blogger. And, to my PETA pals, I assure you that no cattle, or humans, were harmed that glorious day at Aberdovey.

I have always wanted to play golf in the same place that you have been talking about but I think that it won't be good for playing the golf. We have always needed the clean ground.
