The Ga’ash Golf Club got back to its core values this week and reemphasized the importance of giving to the community by hosting a charity tournament where all funds went to “Kfar Idud,” a unique housing complex designed for adults with various learning disabilities.

The event was held on Tuesday under spectacular conditions which saw a morning field of 52 golfers and a packed afternoon field of 56 golfers, with staggered tee-offs at 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., respectively. The two-ball team scramble format was of a very high caliber and played in a wonderful sporting atmosphere.

The morning round was won by the pairing of Moshe Nesis and Oded Meirov, who finished on 64 net strokes. Gil Bianco and Albert Katzenelenbogen finished a close second, on 65, with Mario Blech and Danny Golan grabbing third place, also with 65.
The afternoon session was won by Steve Taylor and Mark Joffe on 61 net strokes, followed by Danny Hurwitz and Atzi Peters on 62, and Zalman Shachaf & Eliezer Argov in third, coming in on 66 strokes.

All golfers were treated to a sleeve of golf balls donated by Titleist and there was also a raffle of a weekend at a golf holiday resort donated by Ista Sport Tours.

At the impressive cocktail party and prize-giving ceremony the organizers of the tournament thanked Gili Peleg, CEO of Golf Ga’ash, for generously hosting this important charity event.
