Back at the Lonnie Poole Golf Club, the annual Dave Schulz Memorial Golf Tournament Fundraiser will be held on October 13, in Raleigh, North Carolina. The fundraiser supports the association's Craft Training Grants and other Safety and Education Projects. More than $40,000 has been awarded in grants and put towards the development of training videos. In addition, World Class winners of the Craft Training Excellence Award each receive $1500 for future craft training programs.
In 2021, the annual tournament was renamed in memory of Dave Schulz, SEAA President (2019-2020), who was instrumental in organizing the event for many years. As Vice President of Schulz Iron Works, Dave was passionate about safety and was a big supporter of the SEAA/NCCER Ironworker Craft Training Program.
The tournament is open to members and non-members. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place teams, longest drive, closest to the pin, and more. Fees include green fee, cart, range balls, lunch, and beverages.
The Lonnie Poole Golf Club at NC State University was designed by Arnold Palmer and the design team at Arnold Palmer Design Company. With views of the Raleigh skyline and the Centennial Campus, the course is consistently ranked as one of the best places to play, including making the Top 25 Best Collegiate Golf Courses in the US by Golf Advisor in 2023.
Interested in sponsoring the golf tournament? There are more than a dozen sponsorships for the fundraiser including an on-course promotional tent, company logo on the golf balls, beverage carts, team sponsors, unlimited tee/hole sponsors, and SO much more.
Prior to the Dave Schulz Memorial Golf Tournament, the association will host a Meet & Greet Reception at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Raleigh Crabtree on October 12 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. The reception provides members and non-members an opportunity to get to know other steel professionals in the area.
SEAA is seeking three vendors or service providers who will partner with us. Meet & Greet Sponsorships have the opportunity to present a short non-promotional presentation to an exclusive group of erectors, fabricators, and contractors.
