Queenstown Golf Club boss Michael Shattock waived the club’s usual smart-but-casual dress code when this 2.2 metre hairy stranger turned up for an impromptu round.
And when Bigfoot asks you to help him line up a putt – you don’t argue.
“He hadn’t paid a green fee but I wasn’t going to challenge him,” Shattock says.
The mythical North American ape-like creature was at the Kelvin Heights course on Monday filming a fun TV ad.
The commercial – for Jack Link’s Beef Jerky – will be screened in the United States later this year.
It features Bigfoot getting a soaking from a sprinkler system on the course before throwing the greenkeeping staff responsible out of their mess room.
