PRESIDENTS PRIZE WEEKEND
Our esteemed President John Moran presented his Presidents
Prize on Sunday 18th August to a packed clubhouse after a fantastic
weekend of golf. Congratulations to well deserved victors David Buckley and
John truly deserved all the high praise awarded to him by our
Lady Captain Maria Kiersey in her speech. John is a proud ambassador for
Dungarvan Golf Club and has worked tirelessly over the years promoting the club
while being heavily involved in our Men into Golf Programme, Fun Friday
Foursomes and our Club Classic to name but a few. Congratulations John on a
wonderful weekend – truly deserved.
John would like to thank everyone who volunteered their time
and energy over the weekend ensuring that everything went so smoothly. It was
so much appreciated. Two hundred and forty-one people took part which was a
fantastic tribute to John’s popularity. Thanks also to those that could not
play but still supported the competition which was also greatly welcomed. Congratulations
to all the prize winners on winning such beautiful prizes. Please see full list
of winners below.
