GOLF: ‘Cross country’ course offers a different test at Enmore Park

ENMORE Park golfers were out at first light yesterday (Monday) to take part Rob Fear’s nine-hole cross country competition.

Starting from the first tee, they holed out on 17A, before moving to the 9th tee from where the 16th was the target.

Further out on the course, rows of high trees proved more of an obstacle than the usual sand bunkers, especially when trying to reach the 13th green from the 4th tee and, as a par 5, the 12th green from the 6th tee.

John Doughty won the gents’ competition with 19 points, one point ahead of Dylan Nyce, who was one point ahead of Jon White. The ladies competition was won by Jackie Woodman, who was a couple of points ahead of Chris Lewis. Steve Owens won the nearest the pin.

  • Golf in a Day sessions for men, women and families – Sunday, May 22 and Sunday, July 3 with more dates to follow
