On Tuesday the annual ESRA tournament was held at Gaash Golf with a wonderful turnout of avid players. The weather was perfect and the greens smooth to enhance the great atmosphere. The 56 players were not only playing to help raise funds for ESRA, but they were a competitive crowd, hoping to win the cups and prizes. The format was Better-Ball Stableford with full handicaps taken into scoring. Two pairs ended the day with 46 Stableford points which lead to a countdown with Karl Yorke and Harvey Groves having a better back-nine than Eli Chitayat and Shalom Schwartzberg. Third place went to Daniel Goldsmith and Simcha Cohen right behind the winners, with 45 Stableford points. The "Longest Drive" for women on the 2nd hole went to Barbara Abraham, and Daniel Fox took it for the men's division. "Nearest to the Pin" prizes were donated by Dudley Kessel, in memory of the late Minnie Kessel, who was an avid golf fan. On hole 4, par 3, 124 meters was Joe Klein, just 1.95 meters from the hole. On the 13th hole, par 3, 130 meters was Ian Froman, coming 2.3 meters from the hole.
