The Ga’ash Golf Club hosted a tournament this month in memory of the late Yeruham Shafat.

Shafat will be remembered for his devotion to the Ga’ash Golf Club and to golf in Israel and was a member of the committee of the Israeli Golf Federation for many years.

He was a devoted family man and a keen artist who also promoted the playing of chess for youth in his community.

A full field of 68 golfers played tribute to Shafat by playing in an individual Stableford competition with shotgun start.

The A Division consisted of players with a 0-15 handicap, and it was Dave Haskell who took first place, on 19 Stableford points, followed by Noam Shultz on 18 points.

Yehudit Merdler and Solly Dreman both topped the B Division with 20, with Merdler taking first place on the countback.

Nearest-to-the-pin prizes – sponsored by Greenfield at Ga’ash – went to Dani Seker.

It was also a good day for Gill Sadeghi, who nailed a hole in one on the par-3 fourth hole, playing 109 meters. Playing in Sadeghi’s 4-ball group were her husband Jamshi, Dalia Sheni and Danny Bendel.

At the moving award ceremony, club captain Avi Dagan and Shafat’s widow, Ruthi, presented the prizes.
