Bobby Bain, “The History of the GGO/Wyndham” (August 11)

August 11, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Bobby Bain, President, Bain Oil Company

The History of the GGO/Wyndham Championship

Bobby Bain was born in Greensboro, where he has lived since. He attended NC State University and earned a BS and MS in Industrial Engineering. He started working at Bail Oil/Bain HVAC in 1973.

Active in service for the greater good, Bobby started by joining the Greensboro Jaycees in 1974.  In 1982, he served as Charmian of the Greater Greensboro Open (GGO), which at that time was managed by the Jaycees.

He also served as President of the Boys and Girls Club, Crime Stoppers, the Western NC Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, and the Jaycees Od-Timer’s.

Bobby became a Rotarian in 1985, sponsored by his father Carson Bain. He went on to serve as President in 2017-18 and currently serves as Secretary of the Board of Directors. Bobby is a sustaining Paul Harris Fellow.

Bobby is the incoming President of the Founder’s Club with the Wyndham Championship. Because of his long association through the Jaycees and the Founders Club (previously the Green Coat Club), Bobby knows a lot about the Wyndham Championship, which will tee-off the day after his presentation to our Rotary Club.

Bobby has been married to wife Vicki for 25 years and has two daughters and one son.
