    Golfers got into the swing on the final afternoon of EDGE 2015 when they competed for the prestigious (well, it is now) EDGE Cup. Two golf courses were reserved for the event- the newly refurbished Port Douglas Resort and the Palmer Sea Reef Golf Course. Sponsors and co-hosts formed teams of 4 for a shotgun start over both courses. It has to be said though, it is the first time we've seen a crocodile on-course - now that's what we call a natural hazard. ARN Editor, Allan Swann, took his camera gear and a buggy and recorded the action.
