GCBAA honors Eagle Golf & Landscape owner

By and |  July 8, 2013

The Golf Course Builders Association of America (GCBAA) will honor Steve Christman, owner and president of Eagle Golf & Landscape Products, with its Perry Dye Service Award.

“Steve has been one of our most active members. He served on the GCBAA board for 12 years in numerous committee roles with one of his most significant being the GCBAA’s treasurer,” said GCBAA Executive Director Justin Apel. “Most notably while Steve served as the GCBAA’s treasurer he was instrumental in guiding the Association to fiscal stability.”

Christman’s company distributes pipe, drainage materials and erosion control products to the golf industry. He also developed, manufactures and distributes Eagle Interface, a root zone and moisture barrier designed for green and bunker construction. Eagle Golf & Landscape Products has been a GCBAA charter member since 2003. Christman joined the organization 20 years ago and served on the board from 1999 to 2011. He has been a longtime supporter of the GCBAA Sticks for Kids and Scholarship programs.

“When you ask many of the members of our Association who was the catalyst for them joining they will tell you it was Steve Christman,” said GCBAA President Kurt Huseman. “It takes a lifetime of selfless service to the golf industry to even be considered for this award and Steve Christman is as worthy a recipient as there is in our industry today. His contribution to the GCBAA has been significant and I am pleased that he will receive this very prestigious award.”

The Perry Dye Service Award is periodically awarded to a GCBAA member who is an exceptional individual and a loyal member and unselfishly contributes his time and influence to make positive changes within the Association. The award is named for Perry Dye, who exemplified these characteristics during GCBAA’s early years by providing the financial assistance that was needed to stabilize the group. Christman is the fourth recipient of the award; previous honorees include Perry Dye (2005), Jim Kirchdorfer Sr. (2006) and Rick Elyea (2010).
