(Scroll down for video) A group of kangaroos had no respect for the prestigious Women’s Open and disrupted the game, according to video uploaded to the internet.

Kangaroos on a golf course may be a common sight for any Australian golfer but they caused a stir at the Australian Women’s Open in Canberra, last week.

The international field featuring 10 of the world’s top 20 women golfers had to get used to the large animals bouncing around the fairways and grazing on the greens of the Royal Canberra championship course.

Australia’s capital is typically dry in summer and by February kangaroos are drawn to the lush watered courses.
Local media said the drought of the 2000s saw so many kangaroos feeding on Canberra’s watered lawns and parks, so they had to be executed because they posed a threat to motorists.

In the video below you can see the group of kangaroos as they hop around on the Australian gold course during the Women’s Open.
