More than a 160 golfers participated in the nine-hole stableford competition, that was divided into three divisions.

The weather as well as the course conditions were excellent and Mercedes provided a hospitality tent in which refreshments were provided all day.

Amiram Zantkern continued a personal winning streak by taking first place in the A division with 19 stableford points, followed by John Kowarski on 18 points.

In the B division Graham Feldman had 22 stableford points followed by Aryeh Merdler on 21 points.

The Merdler famliy was triumphant again in the C division, with Aryeh’s wife, Yehudit, taking first place with 23 points, followed by Inon Laks on 22 points.

The Ga’ash golfers now turn their attention to the Monthly Medal, which will be played at the end of the month.
