Golf Clubmakers Association Names Mike Moynahan
the “Hawaii Clubmaker of the Year”

This is His Third Consecutive GCA Top Honor,
All While Representing Kama’aina Clubmakers
Mike Moynahan Won for 2004-2005, and
Will Continue as the State Winner into 2005-2006

Mike Moynahan, owner of Kama’aina Clubmakers located in Kula in Upcountry Maui, was recently named the 2005-2006 “Hawaii Clubmaker of the Year” by the Golf Clubmakers Association (GCA). This is the second consecutive time the GCA has awarded Mike this top honor, as he represents his golf club fitting and repair shop within the association nationally.

The GCA received hundreds of nominations from around the world for the prestigious overall Clubmaker of the Year award. This year, the extremely competitive selection process was expanded to recognize the accomplishments of even more deserving clubmakers. A panel consisting of several GCA officials and other golf clubmaking experts selected winners from each state (U.S.), province (Canada) and country (Europe). As in the past, regional finalists were then selected from northern, southern, eastern and western sections of the United States as well as Canada, Europe and an international venue to cover all other applicants.

This is the third GCA award for the veteran clubmaker of ten years. Also, Mike was named 2005 PCS “U.S. Regional Clubmaker of the Year” by the Professional CLUBMAKERS’ Society (PCS), and received the GCA “Hawaii Clubmaker of the Year” distinction in 2004-2005. He was also the GCA “U.S. Western Region Clubmaker of the Year” in 2002-2003.

In conjunction with Roy’s Restaurant staff, in 1998 Mike Moynahan established and still currently co-chairs the Roy’s Restaurants Tournaments benefiting Imua Family Services (Easter Seal of Maui).
