A golfer at Sanctuary Cove Golf Course on the Gold Coast, Australia, was forced to defend himself with his clubs after an aggressive kangaroo attacked him in one of many similar incidents in the area

Footage of a terrified golfer forced to defend himself with his clubs as he is attacked by an angry kangaroo has resurfaced online after another attack.

The incident, believed to have taken place at the Sanctuary Cove golf course on the Gold Coast in Australia, shows the aggressive animal leaping at the player, who is wearing a blue polo shirt.

He tries to back off and retreat to his golf cart with his playing partner, but the snarling Roo won’t back down and prompts him to use one of his clubs to protect himself.

However, his attempt at self-defense proved futile when he slipped and was attacked by the kangaroo.

The video, originally posted to YouTube three years ago, has resurfaced after a series of similar incidents at another golf club in the area.

At least 15 people were attacked and two were hospitalized in the recent attacks, including Mary Kohler, 64, who was left with severe lacerations to her neck, arms and back.

Speaking to 9News after the animal attacked her at Arundel Hills Country Club earlier this month, she said: “I didn’t see what hit me.

“One of my friends jumped out of the car with a golf club and knocked the kangaroo off my back. It was pretty frightening. At that point, I wasn’t aware of the extent of my injuries.”

In another video posted to Facebook, a club member tells staff that One Roo attacked 15 people and “is still out there.”

They said: “A woman came to the hospital with 27 stitches to her head and neck… what if it attacks a child?”

Players say the kangaroo attacks have been going on for years, but the animals are still free to roam as the club has put up signs that say, “Do not approach kangaroos at all times.”

More and more players are forced to defend themselves with their own golf clubs as the aggressive marsupials openly attack players.

According to Queensland Parks and Wildlife, the golf club is privately owned and would need to call in a specialist to relocate dangerous kangaroos.

In 2020, an angry kangaroo slapped a father in the face and kicked him to the ground after a scary standoff on Christmas Day as Mitchell Robinson tried to protect his children in Australia.

Footage showed the enraged animal confronting its victim before hitting him with its paw and then kicking him to the ground.

The dangerous animal had been prowling and digging holes in the front yard of their home in South West Rocks, New South Wales.
