BRISBANE (AUSTRALIA)- The players at the Carbrook Golf Club in the city of Brisbane better not pick their balls out of the lake. The waters are home to six big bull sharks, who have become the new attraction of the golf course. Their dorsal fins breaking the surface are a regular sight.
The sharks, which are between 2.4 meters and 3 meters long, got onto the Queensland golf course when it flooded some years ago after a river broke its banks. They became stranded when the water receded, but now they are thriving and even breeding.
The Carbrook Golf Club sees the sharks as a positive thing. General Manager Scott Wagstaff occasionally throws in meat to encourage the sharks to come near the surface. The lake itself is well stocked with fish.
The sharks have become renowned in the region and there is even a monthly tournament called the “Shark Lake Challenge.”
