Kangaroos on the golf course may be a common sight for any Australian golfer but they caused a stir at the Australian Women's Open in Canberra on Thursday (February 14).
The international field featuring 10 of the world's top 20 women golfers has had to get used to the large marsupials bouncing around the fairways and grazing on the greens of the Royal Canberra championship course.
Australia's capital is typically dry in summer and by February kangaroos are drawn to the lush watered courses.
Local media said the drought of the 2000s saw so many kangaroos feeding on Canberra's watered lawns and parks they had to be culled because they posed a threat to motorists.
