On the 17th yesterday came very close. About 50 or so roos were just welll being roos about 60m in front of the tee. My drive was low and hard and missed one by about 25cm. Anyone ever hit one of the course? If so did it die or survive the hit or perish?
In case anyone is wondering also it's quite common for Golf courses in Australia to have Kangaroos everywhere. Bloody little things annoy you when they stare at you taking your shot in the rough.

My partner and I had one jump into the side of our Bus (Coach). We had just left visiting family in Bribie Island. I was video taping one on the other side of the road and fence. As, I was doing that. it turned towards the fence, jumped the fence and was coming towards our bus. I thought for sure it was going to stop and turn away. Nope it did not, Slam into the side of our bus it went. It left a nice dent in the side of the bus..

I sure hope no one has hit any living thing on the golf course.

Why not scare them off first instead of carelessly driving the ball into the group of them? Or aim somwhere else. Poor little guys. This post offends me because you make it sound so casual and ok to hit an animal with a golf ball whether or not it dies. They have a right to safely enjoy their habitat as much as humans do. They don't know if they're on a golf course or road or whatever.

Well, I did hit my uncle once. He's an avid golfer. I have played it three times now, not my cup of tea so I won't go for the fourth game.
Little tip: When playing with a novel golfer don't stand left or right of where you think the ball should go. Stand 4 meters behind the golfer or exactly on the spot where you think the ball SHOULD land and you'll be perfectly safe
