Classic Gifts & Awards (booth 2234), which has been supplying distinctive awards and gifts to prestigious golf clubs and associations since 1988, is celebrating its 30th year as an exhibitor at the PGA Merchandise Show.

Owners Spike and Debbie Smith of Pinehurst, North Carolina, have become famous for their framed gold or silver bullion crests with custom hand embroidery, and framed club or event logos for tournament awards. Tournament and outing prizes and gifts are their specialties.

“We take pride in helping our clients establish a rich tradition of providing tournament awards for your club and appreciation gifts for your organization,” said Debbie Smith. “Our goal is to create a memorable award for your event. Our product line includes custom hand-embroidered blazer crests, framed awards, pillows, and other custom photographic and hand- painted watercolor artwork.”

While the Smiths usually make awards for others, Spike is a recipient of the Outstanding Civilian Service Award from the U.S. Army for his work with the Patriot Foundation, which supports soldiers and their families.
