Recipient of New Award: 2006-2007
Top Ten Worldwide Clubmaker of the Year

Mike Moynahan, golf clubmaker and owner of Kama’aina Clubmakers in Upcountry Maui, was recently named 2006-2007 Top Ten Worldwide Clubmaker of the Year by the Golf Clubmakers Association (GCA). This makes the third year in a row that Moynahan has been selected as the GCA Hawaii Clubmaker of Year. The GCA receives hundreds of nominations from around the world for the prestigious overall Clubmaker of the Year award—this award is judged by a panel consisting of several GCA officials and other golf clubmaking experts. This year they selected winners from each state (U.S.), province (Canada) and country (International) who exemplify the overall best qualities of golf club repair, club fitting and community work.

“All of the 2006-2007 GCA award winners should be proud because they have received what many consider to be some of the clubmaking industry’s highest honors, said Golfsmith R & D vice president, Jeff Sheets, who served on the panel of judges. “This award recognizes Mr. Moynahan’s ability, integrity and professionalism.”

Having been in the business for over ten years, Mike Moynahan has teed-off with much success in the national and international golf community. At his shop in Kula, located in Upcountry Maui, Mike custom builds and fits clubs for any golfer, professional or novice. As he puts it, “You don’t buy a $1,000 suit without having it tailored.” This year he has added custom grinding of irons and wedges to the services that he offers.

Kama’aina Clubmakers performs repairs for players and tour representatives at highly acclaimed tournaments such as the Mercedes Championship (1999-2006) and the EMC Ka’anapali Classic (Senior PGA Tour 1999, 2000), as well as the Kapalua Lincoln Mercury Tournament (1996, 1997). 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). He is an avid community supporter and also simply enjoys the game—as does his son, Brendan Moynahan, who is the current PGA head golf professional at Jack Nicklaus signature Hualalai Golf Course, Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu on the Big Island.
