Top New York industry pros donned their khakis and dusted off their clubs for The Real Deal’s fourth-annual golf outing last month.

About 120 developers, brokers, lawyers, lenders and marketers headed out to the Baiting Hollow Golf Club on the North Fork of Long Island on Aug. 4 — both to hit the fairway and to talk real estate between shots.

Among those in attendance: Ilan Bracha of Keller Williams NYC; Eric Anton, who recently left Brookfield Financial for HFF; Eva Penson of Douglas Elliman; 5Points Group’s Alan Miller and HAP Investments Eldad Gothelf.

The golfers, playing best-ball rules in a scramble format, played through a few early raindrops, but thankfully the sun broke through shortly after tee off.

Meridian Capital Group’s Jonathan Stern and MarkAngelo Kazanjian, with Bisnow’s Miles Bloom and Brian Kinslow, took home the top honors with a score of 64. Mike Astor, Adam Roth, Darren Marks and Larry Zombek of law firm Borah, Goldstein, Altschuler, Nahins & Goidel were the runners-up, while a foursome led by Alan Miller and his 5Points Group colleague David Johnson took third place.
