Dinosaurs on golf courses are usually reserved for tourist attractions, but not at Palmer Coolum Resort in Australia. From Devil Ball Golf:Palmer Coolum is hosting this weekend's Australian PGA Championship, but that's not why it's in the news these days. Clive Palmer, an Australian billionaire and the new owner of Palmer Coolum, has plans to upend the entire atmosphere of the resort, starting with Jeff the T-Rex there. Jeff is 26-feet tall, situated between the ninth and 10th holes, and roars and moves every time it detects motion. The dinosaur's roaring feature has been turned off for the tournament per the request of the Australian PGA. In fact, the group isn't too excited at all about Palmer's latest course additions. The group almost pulled the plug on this year's tournament before striking an accord with Palmer at the last-minute.Palmer plans on bringing more animatronic statues onto the resot, and also hopes to add a new model of the Titanic as well.
