We are sad to report the passing of W.R. "Red" Steger, CCM. Involved in the club management field for his entire career, Red had served as General Manager of River Oaks Country Club, Houston, TX, for more than 30 years, served as President of the Texas Lone Star Chapter twice (1958 and 1974) and as President of the CMAA Board of Directors in 1987.


After 45 years in the industry, Red retired and began his second career to help usher in the next generation of club managers. Instrumental in the starting of The Club Foundation, Red worked tirelessly on the initial campaign to raise $3M, money that is used to provide scholarships and education opportunities to our industry. Red served on The Club Foundation Board of Governors for many years and at the time of his passing was a Governor Emeritus.


A member of CMAA for more than 64 years, Red was also a CCM (Certified Club Manager), an Honor Society member, one of the founders of the CMAA Wine Society and a mentor to countless club managers. He will be missed.
