GCBAA Press Releases

Dr. James R. Watson Passing


The GCBAA office is sad to announce the passing of Dr. James R. Watson. Dr. Watson was the recipient of our 2013 Don A. Rossi Award which was presented earlier this year in San Diego at the Golf Industry Show. The Rossi award is given by the GCBAA to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to the game of golf and its growth and who have inspired others by example. It is named for the former GCBAA executive director Don A. Rossi, who also served as executive director of the National Golf Foundation from 1970 to 1983 and was instrumental in forming the National Golf Course Owner's Association. Our thoughts are with the Watson and Toro family at this time.
