ON Friday more than 70 competitors braved the elements and took on the 9 hole Cross Country course at Enmore Park Golf Club, following a tricky route from the 1st tee to 17A, then the 9th to the 16th and so on.  

To most of the players, the trees proved more of an obstacle than the traditional bunkers or water hazards but, by avoiding most of the trouble, Steve James with 22 points and Charlotte Warren  with 17  won the Gents and Ladies competitions respectively, with shots to spare.  

The runner up in the Ladies Section was Suzanne Boydell with 15 points whilst in the Gents competition it was Ian Edwards with 20.
