Captain's Profile

Men's Captain 2021 

Keith Watson 

After what was meant to be a 2 year stay, Keith has now been in the Middle East since 1982. Working for the Alireza group of Saudi Arabia, Keith has managed their Reza Hygiene Division throughout the GCC for 23 years. 

Keith met his wife Jan in Jeddah in 1998, moving to Bahrain in 2004 with their two very young children, where Keith rekindled his love for Golf and Jan enthusiastically taking up the game.

Keith became part of the Riffa Views community in 2010 and served on the Home Owners Association. Initially a Wee Monty Member at the RGC while his children were young, he later moved up to full Membership and has been active in supporting the club and activities however he can.

Keith’s best memory in golf was playing in the Bob Hope Classic televised tournament in 1980 and being paired with two world number 1’s of the game, Greg Norman and Nick Price. TV evening highlights with Greg Norman shooting a record breaking 63 whilst a shaggy haired, flare-bottom trousered Keith looked on.


Ladies Captain 2021

Denise Dunne

Denise grew up in Dublin and trained as a nurse at Kings College Hospital, London. She is married to Kevin and they have three children who were brought up in Galway on
the west coast of Ireland. She and her husband came to Bahrain in 2012 with the Royal Golf Club becoming a ‘home away from home’ in 2013!

A ‘latecomer ‘to golf, but she admits she is somewhat addicted to the game now! Her proudest moment being a hole in one on the 12th at the Royal Golf Club! She is honoured to be Lady Captain for 2020 and hopes it will be a year of inclusivity and fun for all... with some good golf!
