Cyril Kaufman won the Gaash Golf Club monthly medal competition with a 67 gross, a new course record, last week.
Kaufman was a par 35 on the first nine - including seven pars, one birdie and a bogie - and played the back nine in a three-under par 32 - four birdies, four pars and a bogey. The course is now playing a par 70 (with the course rating 67.0 and a slope rating 115.0).
Kaufman won the "A" Division with a net 64. On 68 were both Joe Klein and Mati Geri, with the honors going to Joe with a better back nine.
In the "B" Division, Salomon Levy had a net 68 followed by Larry Bergman with a 69. Salomon also won the longest drive honors with a 196-meter drive on the new par-4 hole No. 2, into a very strong wind.
In the "C" Division, Ronni Elchanan won with a net 66 followed by Rafi Shelef on net 70.
The prize for "nearest to the pin" for women, on the par-3 105-meter hole No. 4, was earned by Dorit Benatoff (2.28 meters away).
The previous week, Kaufman accepted the 2006 Club Champion trophy and a special plaque that recognized his hard work over the years at the annual awards banquet, which was held on the grounds of the golf club.
