A Townsville golf cub has installed a trap in a bid to catch the crocodile making himself at home between the 17th and 18th holes.
The Willows Golf Club put the trap into their lake on Wednesday, with the aim to catch the four-metre saltwater crocodile.
The croc first appeared before Christmas, with Queensland rangers heading to the scene.
A sign was erected to warn golfers of the possible danger, but according to the course director of golf Josh Tindale, the crocodile prefers to keep away from humans.
"When he's sunning himself, if he sees any golfers coming, if they do get too close he sort of does go back into hiding and cruises across to the other side of the lake," Mr Tindale told the Daily Mail.
"He just goes backwards and forwards, enjoys a nice feed every now and then.
"There's plenty of fish and eels and turtles and everything in our lakes so he's certainly being well fed."
In a video posted on Facebook, three men can be seen loading the trap into the water after reversing it in on a trailer.
It remains unclear where the crocodile will be taken if caught.
