If you spot a python on the golf course, you should probably go to the next hole. Too bad no one told this wallaby that there's a snake in the grass.

According to Yahoo, a 13-foot python was spotted on a golf course wrestling a wallaby on the 17th hole of the Paradise Palms course in Queensland, Australia on Saturday. The days of the golf clap are over. Now is the time of the golf hisssssss.

"It had (the wallaby) in a vice-like grip and it was swallowing it," said Robert Willemse, golfer and witness, who later heard that the python finished the job.

Willemse went on to say that while wildlife is common in the area, giant snakes were not. 

"It looked like it might have dropped out of a tree, got a hold of (the wallaby), then there was a bit of a struggle and it rolled into the middle of the fairway."

Is no place safe from these monstrous snakes?

augusta golf masters - 6077991936

Golfers at the Masters this weekend face an Augusta National that has undergone quite the upgrade since its opening in 1934. The legendary course has adapted for advances in equipment technology -- including titanium and graphite clubs that allow even the worst golfers more distance off the tee -- with faster greens and increased hazards, particularly bunkers.

But the most widespread, and controversial, changes occurred from 1999-2006, when Augusta was "Tiger-proofed": tee shot landing areas were narrowed and a second cut of grass was added.

Bill Younker has detailed the redesign in this painstaking graphic, which can be had as a poster for $35.
