A crocodile has been removed from a far north Queensland country club after getting a bit too close and personal with golfers.

The 3.6 metre croc was removed from the Mirage resort golf course at Port Douglas on Wednesday after it started getting too close to guests.

The Mirage Country Club's general manager Peter Douglas says numerous crocodiles come and go from the course as they please.

But two, including the one trapped on Tuesday night, had become permanent residents.

Two traps will remain in the area to catch the other slightly bigger croc on the course.

"These two were so comfortable and so relaxed," Mr Douglas told AAP.

"They sat out on the grass and I was afraid that guests may be in danger."

The captured crocodile will get a health check before being offered to a registered crocodile farm or zoo.

Mr Douglas said the animals had never been aggressive but rangers believed they should be removed as a precaution.

Wildlife officers will continue to monitor the crocodiles at the golf course over the coming week.
