Excellent course conditions lent to excellent scoring in the Gaash Golf Club's Monthly Medal held last Thursday. The "A" Division was won by Amos Aharoni with a net 73, followed by Gil Don with a score of net 74. Gil also won the "closest to the hole" prize, coming within eight meters from the hole, on the 160 meter, par three, very difficult ninth hole. The "B" Division was won by ex-Betar Jerusalem center-forward, Gary Vandermolen, with a net score of 67. In second place, came Simcha Cohen with a 69 net having a better back nine than Norma Kaufman and Ofra Dagan, also with 69 points. In the "C" Division the weekend Marshall Eli Ziv mastered the best score of the day with an amazing net 62. This was followed by Bob Pick with a net 73. The longest drive on the 5th hole for women was won by Anthea Silove with a drive of 173 meters. Many new faces took part in this tournament, most of who joined during the past year, thanks to their tutelage at the Gaash Golf club's school, which offers a course of 16 lessons at a special low rate.
