A home for sale in the Melbourne suburb of Avondale Heights has ruffled feathers across social media after people spotted a haphazardly placed mini-driving range in the backyard.
The house, located at 49 Barbara Crescent, boasts three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and overlooks the Maribyrnong River and the parklands and trails that border its banks.
The description on the home's listing on realeastste.com.au describes the house as 'brilliantly, beautifully unique', and features 'expansive decking, manicured lawns and the endless views' that 'are enhanced by a personal viewing deck overlooking the Maribyrnong River and a substantial basement garage.'
The 'personal viewing deck' obviously being a homemade golfing range where one can smack golf balls into the surrounding areas, if that's your thing.
Despite a home driving range being an avid golfer's dream, Twitter users have pointed out that smashing out golf balls Happy Gilmore-style from the property would be super dangerous, considering that many use the river's trails for their daily walks.
One Twitter user remarked in response to the listing: "Are they just whacking golf balls into the Maribyrnong River?"
Another added: "What the hell?! There are two pedestrian/bike trails along the river below there!"
A third complained: "Imagine getting domed by this f**khead while walking along the creek. Some poor animal choking out on a golf ball."
To be fair, the thought of heading off for a jog around the river only to be taken out by a rogue golf ball flying out of some bougie house is enough to p*ss of the most levelheaded of people.
Not only that, but carelessly hitting golf balls into a river can't be good for the animals residing there, either.
@BenCarrollMP Hey Ben, I was just browsing real estate listings in Avondale Heights and I'm curious;
Are you just allowed to smash golf balls into the Maribyrnong River/Parklands with impunity?https://t.co/Jq6hIZNV9G

Honestly, all we can think of is that scene in Seinfeld episode 'The Marine Biologist' when Kramer acquires a stash of 600 Titleist golf balls from a driving range and decides to hit them into the ocean.
In true Kramer style, he manages to land an accidental 'hole in one' in the blowhole of a whale, which later sees George save said whale while pretending to be a marine biologist.
So yeah, it's kind of like that. Except there's no whales and it's way less funny.
