Election Day brought a record number of golfers, 90, to the Gaash Golf Club last Tuesday to participate in the monthly medal tournament. Excellent weather conditions created a festive atmosphere in which family members joined the players and tried out Gaash's driving range, putting green and restaurant. Columbian-born 16-yearold Oren Levy, a pupil at the Eldad High School in Netanya, won the A Division with a score of 68 net playing with his father in his four-ball. Levy, who has been living in Israel for seven years, has managed to lower his handicap from 24 to 8 over the past two years. Steve Midkiff was second with a 69 net. When more than one player finishes with the same score, the winner is determined by the best back nine result, or by counting best odd-holes. Eli Abramov, who travels from Omer near Beersheba to play, took the B Division with a 71 net (count-out second nine), with Lawrence Goodman, also at 71 net, in second. Tops in the C-Division was Anna Golan with 65 net (count-out odd holes). Itzik Edeleman also had a score of 65 net, good for second place. Amos Aharoni hit the longest drive in the men's division, 233 meters, and Hanni Fuchs came nearest to the pin on the fourth hole, 4.13 meters. The next tournament is an individual stableford competition that will take place on Wednesday.
