The Golf Course Builders Association of America is saddened to share the news of the sudden loss of our long-time member and friend, Bob Bryant. Bob has been a member of the Association since the mid-1980’s and his company, Bryant Taylor Gordon Golf, became Charter Members of the Association in 2007. Bob served as a member of the Board of Directors from 2007 to 2012. Bob was very active in various committees, including the Don A. Rossi Awards Committee and the Membership Committee; he also served on the GCBAA Board of Governors. Bob was instrumental in the development and expansion of the GCBAA Cost Estimating Guide for Golf Course Construction by creating Irrigation Installation calculations. He also helped author the GCBAA Golf Course Irrigation Contractor Certification Program.
Please join us in sending positive thoughts and prayers to Bob’s wife Rhonda and his children, along with the Bryant family and the Bryant Taylor Gordon Golf family. The Association will keep our news page current with arrangements and information on how you can show your support to his family during this difficult time and holiday season. Bob was a true family man and mentor to so many in our industry. Along with his volunteer service and time spent serving our country as a Marine, he was also one of the most influential Golf Course Irrigation Designers in the industry. Bob will be missed!
