On Thursday, 10 November 2016, some 20 striped mongoos were invited to a golf course during the Nedbank Golf Challenge tournament in Sun City, South Africa, forcing golfers to interrupt the competition. Fortunately, the animals did not disturb the game since they did not move any ball. Located near the nature reserve of Pilanesberg, this golf course is regularly visited by wild animals. Two years ago, English golfer Luke Donald was interrupted by the arrival of a baboon on the course.
