Alex Sagi started the winter season in great fashion by scoring a gross 76 in the November Monthly Medal at the Ga’ash Golf Club last week.

Earlier, Nikita Ben-Ami and Amos Aharoni captured first place in the nine-hole better ball Stableford competition, with Sagi and Meir Shani coming in second place.

A full field of 60 golfers participated in the competition to celebrate the inauguration of the new greens after they were reseeded for the winter. The winning duo played excellent golf with Aharoni playing the nine holes in two-under par 33, which included three birdies, five pars and a bogey. His partner, Ben-Ami, carded a threeover over par 38.

Nearest-to-the-pin prizes, sponsored by the pro shop at the Ga’ash Golf Club, went to Sagi. At the award ceremony, Shmulik Tal, the CEO of Cigar magazine, provided cigars and wine.

Also at Ga’ash, nearly 50 golfers played in the Monthly Medal, with Sagi putting up a winning score of 76.

Steven Weil took home first place in the A Division on the count-back after a three-way tie on net 71 with Shmulik Almagor and Cyril Kaufman.

Ladies club captain Gill Sadeghi won the B Division with a net 68, followed by Norma Kaufman.

Veteran golfer Eddy Hoffman had a great round to triumph in the the Super Seniors with a four-under par net 66, followed by Brian Mehl.
