More than 50 players fought the heat and humidity at the Gaash Golf Club's monthly medal tournament on Tuesday. Avi Farkash won the A Division with a net 66. Playing off a 10 handicap, he finished the front nine in par 36 with one birdie, seven pars and a bogey and came home on the back nine with a 4-over par 40. Avi, a 38-year-old from Elad has only been playing for a year and a half and already boasts a respectful handicap. In second place in the A Division was Isaac Rahamim, who played the back nine in 37 and ended up with a net 73. In the B Division, Hanni Fuchs and 13-year-old Daniel Fox from Ra'anana both had scores of net 75, with Fuchs taking the trophy with her better back nine. In the C Division, Mimi Bannister came in with a net 68 to take first place, followed by Colin Lewis on net 70. Judy Reefe recorded the longest drive for women, with a drive of 135 meters into a strong wind on the par-four hole No. 5. Gaash is preparing to host two qualifying rounds of the International Pairs competition, to be held on July 4 and 6.
