Between the May Monthly Medal and a special charity tournament for scholarships for students at Tel Aviv University, it was a very busy month at the Ga’ash Golf Club.
Michael Cohen had the best gross score in the Monthly Medal, in which almost 60 golfers participated in perfect conditions, with kudos to course superintendent Tal Bildman and his staff.
Cohen played the front nine in 38 strokes which included one birdie, four pars and four bogeys, and came home in 37 strokes, including one birdie, five pars and three bogeys, for a total of 75.
In the A Division, Lionel Philips took first place with a net 71, beating Dudu Tor on the count-back after the two finished with identical totals.
The best net score of the day was Sharon Fridman, in the B Division, with a net 67.
On net 68 were Brian Mehl and Adrienne Biberstein, with Mehl taking second place on the count-back.
The C Division was won by Gill Sadeghi on net 70, followed by Allan Gelman on net 71.
Nearest-to-the-pin prizes – sponsored by Greenfield at Ga’ash – were won by Anthony Harris and Tor.
Meanwhile, the scholarship charity tournament for Tel Aviv University students was organized by Ga’ash club members Marilyn Cooper, Judy Reefe, Gill Zadiki and Philip Rosenblum.
A full field of 48 golfers participated in a better-ball Stableford 75% handicap competition.
First place went to Adrienne and Peter Biberstein, Michael Cohen and Mark Joffe roared to a second-place finish and Eli Sharira and Mario Hayun took home third-place honors.
Best front-nine prizes went to Judy Reefe and Norma Kaufman and best back-nine awards went to Marilyn Cooper and Shlomo Ivgi.
Nearest-to-the-pin went to Ofra Dagan, Eli Sharira, Mario Hayun and Aude Amaragi.
The prizes for the longest drives went to Linda Streit and Shlomo Ivgi. The prizes for nearest-to-the-line down the fairway went to Marion Fegel and Ilan Cohen.
The award ceremony and lunch were held at Greenfield at Ga’ash, where Phil Rosenblum thanked Ga’ash CEO Gili Peleg for hosting the tournament, and Discount Bank and United Airlines for their sponsorships.
In other Ga’ash news, Zadik Bino recorded his first hole-in-one on Friday, May 16, on the par-3 fourth hole, which was playing 119 meters. Witnessing the exiting moment in Bino’s four-ball group were Ilan Mendelson, Shuky Zuk and Danny Herzog.
