CAPTAINS PRIZE – DAVID P. BYRNE

Our first major event of the year, our Captains Prize kindly presented by David P. Byrne, will be played from Friday 10th July to Sunday 12th July 2020. We would like to wish our Captain David P. Byrne the very best for his weekend ahead. 

Meet Our Captain

David probably better known as Dave and his wife Helen have resided in the Ballinroad area since 2013 having relocated to the Deise county from Dublin. They have two daughters namely Jennifer and Emma and two grandchildren Arianne and Bobby. 

Dave retired after 32 years of service in Dublin Fire Brigade as an officer, the final six years giving tuition in the Fire Brigade training college. He is a member of Dublin Fire Brigade Pipe Band since 1985 playing bagpipes, travelling to Russia, America, Canada & England to perform. 

Within a short time of arriving in Ballinroad, Dave involved himself with Dungarvan Cycling Club getting knowledge of the general area. Subsequently he joined Dungarvan Hillwalking Club and is presently membership secretary – as the song goes “over hills and mountains and to America” Dave has done it all. 

Dungarvan Golf Club was his next stop taking up membership and being elevated to the position of Club Captain for the 2019/2020 season. He has committed himself totally to the task and having regard to ongoing restrictions he continues to ensure that we as members can play the game in a safe manner. As a “Dub” to the Deise and Dungarvan Golf Club you have endeared yourself to the many who have got to know you. Congratulations David.

Captains Prize 

Our Captains Scramble takes place on Wednesday 8th July and entry fee is 5 euro.
