Pat Jones, publisher and editorial director of Golf Course Industry, called this year’s awards program “one of the best ever” thanks to strong interest in the remodeling and renovation category as well as an increase in entries in both the new construction and environmental categories. “It’s clear that, in a tighter market, GCBAA-member builders are going above and beyond the call of duty to provide excellent work and stay within budget. The quality of the entries is evidenced by the fact that we had a tie in the renovation category for the second year in a row. The work these companies are doing is just that good.”
The Builders Excellence Awards will be presented in conjunction with the GCBAA’s upcoming annual meeting during PGA Championship week in Atlanta on Thursday, August 11. The goal of the program is to recognize outstanding work by GCBAA members and to spotlight the association’s mission of advancing and continuously improving the profession of golf course construction. The winning projects will be featured in the September issue of GCI along with coverage of the association’s 40th anniversary.
