2019 Golfers' Challenge - Monday, April 15th
Firethorne Country Club

Presented by Bridge Mergers & Acquisitions

MCA Golfers’ Challenge 2019 – Over $55,000 Raised
What a special day for Metrolina Christian Academy as we hosted our 19th Annual Golfers’ Challenge, presented by Bridge Mergers & Acquisitions, on Monday, April 15th at Firethorne Country Club.  We were blessed in abundance with a beautiful sunny day, strong sponsor support, and great golfer participation (120 golfers).  

Although the tournament was played at a new venue (Firethorne Country Club) and on a new day (Monday), the result was still the same...impacting our young people for the cause of Christ.  With generous support from our sponsors and golfers, MCA raised more than $55,000, which benefits our students with enhanced technology (including STEAM initiatives), more opportunities for fine arts and athletics, and campus security, including additional card access entry and security cameras.

We are so very thankful to all our sponsors, golfers and supporters of MCA and praise God for His abundant provision!  For a complete list of sponsors for the 2019 Golfers’ Challenge, please click here or click the "Sponsors" tab above.

 Congratulations to the 1st Place Team with winning score of 52!!!
Jeff Helms, Brian Macintosh, Lucas Helms, Casy Vanderbush       

2nd Place - (score – 54) – Mark Dunn, Dustin Welborn, Mark Jachym, Jackson Taylor
3rd Place - (score – 55) – Karsten Shields, Layne Lambert, Luke Shamblin, Collin Welborn
