Both the temperatures and the scores were high at last week's Pessah Tournament at Gaash Golf Club.
As the thermometer approached 30 C, Aviram Ganot and Muli Timor finished in first place with 50 Stableford points, while Dori Shadmon and Eitan Kasif were close runners-up with 49 points.
With the fairways and greens starting their growing season, greenskeeper Uzi Steinfeld said the course is due to be in perfect condition for the upcoming Anda Zimand Tournament, which is to be held at the beginning of May.
Late last Sunday night, the Gaash "family" booked Kibbutz Ramat Hakovesh's pub in order to watch the final round of The Masters on a big screen. The Augusta, Georgia, major did not finish until around 2 a.m. Monday Israel time, when Phil Mickelson finished two strokes ahead of Tim Clark.
Macabbi golf champion Andy Nemiroff commented that watching the golf on a large screen while drinking beer with great friends was similar to being on the fairways at Augusta National Golf Club.
