Captains Day – Moyvalley Golf Club – Sat 29th July 2017.


Captains Day at Moyvalley Golf Club took place last Sat 29th July. Club Captain Mr.Bernard Doran, a local  Johnstownbridge man, enjoyed a great turn out for his day, with the tee full from 7.30am to 1.00pm. 

The weather was kind to Moyvalley, and  were blessed with a dry but windy day , making conditions that little bit harder. There was not pre –qualification, and so it was a highly pressurised straight 18 hole competition.

Following the Men teeing off, the Ladies Section played from 1.00PM competing for the Moyvalley Mens Captain’s Prize to the Ladies Section.

The Presentation Dinner took place at 8.30 that evening after the finish of the Kildare V Armagh match at Croke Park.  Captain Bernard had invited all Past Captains of Moyvalley Golf Club along to the Dinner as the club were celebrating 10 years affiliation to the GUI.

The evening was deemed to be a great success with the Club House packed to capacity. Following a wonderful Dinner the Club President Mr. Frank Shortt gave a warm introductory welcome to all on behalf of all members, and Captain Bernard  presented the  Prizes.
