A woman has been left stunned after a massive mob of kangaroos parked themselves on a golf course’s fairway and waited for her to tee off.
Amateur golfer Wendy Powick posted a video of the encounter on Monday after she was interrupted by the animals while playing at Arundel Hills Country Country Club on the Gold Coast in Queensland.
‘Never ever seen this happen before when a whole mob of kangaroos at Arundel Hills Country Club decided to charge up the fairway and stop right at the front of the Tee box to watch me… absolutely gold and only in Australia…,’ Ms Powick wrote.
The footage captured the golfer preparing to swing at the tee box when a large group of at least 15 kangaroos appeared in the distance and swarmed the green, hopping towards Ms Powick.
A man can be heard from behind the camera saying: ‘How’s this for golf today. They’ve all decided to settle in the middle of the fairway.’

Some of the roos continued to hop around the area, while the others stayed still and focused on the stunned golfer.
Ms Powick turned to the camera with a confused look on her face and laughed in shock at what was occurring.
‘They’ve come to watch me tee off,’ the golfer jokingly said.
Several kangaroos started to hop away, but a crowd of the animals still remained as they hoped to watch the golfer’s skills.
Still confused by the audience of animals in front of her, Ms Powick said: ‘What’s going on?’
