The 29th Annual Raleigh NCMCA Golf Tournament and the 18th Annual Myrtle Beach Golf Trip took place January 13 to 15, 2017 along the Grand Strand with some 47 individuals participating. The 2017 “Murdell” Champions are the team of (left to right) Terry Ward, David James, Sam Bond, and Greg Breeze pictured with Tournament Chairman Doug Burton. Finishing second was the team of Mike Hoover, Lee Heath, Bill Reed, and Drew Bullock followed by Lee Amick, Frank Werner, Sheryle Crocker, and Danny Batten in the third spot. Raleigh Chapter golf tournaments have raised thousands of dollars, all dedicated to the promotion of masonry and the perpetuation of the masonry trade. Chairman Doug says, “Since the Murdell tournament began in 2000, we’ve raised over $81,000. Due to the use of ‘rain-checks’ from last year’s tournament and increased sponsorships this year, we made about $11,000 in 2017.  I’m retiring when we hit $100,000.”
