The Dave Schulz Memorial Golf Tournament returned to the Lonnie Poole golf course at NC State in Raleigh, North Carolina, for the first time since the tournament was named for former SEAA President (2018-2019) and 2009 Person of the Year Dave Schulz. Schulz passed away in 2020.
“This homecoming would not have been complete without Cindy Schulz, Dave’s widow, and former president of Schulz Iron Works,” said David Deem, current SEAA President. Deem sported red tennis shoes in honor of Dave Schulz, who was a huge supporter of North Carolina State University and was frequently seen wearing red tennis shoes, even with a suit and tie.
Lonnie Poole Club Pro Scott Clagg also shared his fond memories of Schulz, having worked closely with him on planning the annual golf tournament for more than a decade.
“For the first time for as long as I’ve been involved in planning SEAA events, which is more than 20 years, we had someone make a Hole in One on #14, which was sponsored by Crane & Hoist Inspection Professionals,” said Carrie Gulajan, SEAA Vice President and chairperson of the Events Committee. “I’m told the whooping and shouting could be heard from several holes away,” she said.
Funds raised during this tournament and from the semi-annual Boom Lift Ball Drop, sponsored by United Rentals, support Safety & Education projects for the association. View photos from the event here .
