Michael Doyle – a tribute to our past president

All at England Golf are saddened by the news that past president Michael Doyle has passed away at the age of 95.

Michael was elected president of the then English Golf Union in 2001 – a position he took on and upheld with great pride and integrity.

Michael was born in London and played county golf for Middlesex, but eventually made his home in Yorkshire.

As well as being captain of his beloved Bradford Golf Club, Michael became president of the Yorkshire Union of Golf Clubs in 1992 and served on their executive until recently.

Michael is survived by his wife Ann and their daughters Jane and Sarah.

Our thoughts are with the Doyle family and friends at this time.
