“Sharks on a Golf Course!” No, it’s not the wildly anticipated sequel to Samuel L. Jackson’s “Snakes on a Plane,” unfortunately. This is actually a non-fiction story recently reported on by NBC Sports “Off the Bench” about Queensland’s Carbrook Golf Club, which has the distinction of having sharks in the water hazard on the 15th fairway.
According to the story, the sharks (along with various other fish species) ended up residing at the club after the nearby Logan River flooded in the early 1990’s and washed the animals into the lake on the golf course. While the stories of sharks in the course’s water hazards were initially believed to be a myth, repeated sightings along with video documentation has proven the myth to be true. The NBC Sports article goes on to note that the golf course staff feeds chicken to the sharks, now.
