Due to this trespass, Wendy Powick could not tee off. She smiled and looked at the camera filming, beyond amused and perplexed by what she was witnessing. It is safe to say that no one teed off for some time, not until the kangaroos cleared the way completely.

Fans shared their own stories, some Canadian golfers revealing that they have seen animals like elks on the golf course. Some explained kangaroo facts to those scared, revealing that the red big ones are more dangerous. Some even drew some similarities to Jurassic Park and Game of Thrones!

What did the golfer have to say about the kangaroos?

After laughing and looking stunned by the kangaroo appearance on the course, Powick, who started playing golf last year, spoke about the incident to 7NEWS.
