Australian Golf Course embraces their accidentally shark-infested lake


It is deemed to be the worlds first golf course with sharks on the property.

6 deadly bullsharks, which are between 8ft and 10ft long, got onto the Queensland golf course when it flooded some years ago after a river broke its banks. The disaster of the flood that brought the sharks has turned into a boon to the golf course owners as they embrace the unique attribute of having a 6 man-eaters in the lake in the center of the course at Brisbane’s Carbrook Golf Club.

Although the lake is well stocked with fish, Wagstaff occasionally throws in meat to encourage the sharks to come near the surface.

Now their protruding dorsal fins has become a selling point attracting new customers and publicity.

“You can’t believe how close you are … just six feet [1.8m] away,” club general manager Scott Wagstaff said. “There’s no drama, it’s become a positive thing for the golf course. They are amazing. I’ve become a shark lover since working here.”
