15th Annual Ravens Roost #4 Golf Tournament

On Saturday, July 14, 2012, Ravens Roost #4 held their 15th Annual Golf Tournament at Hollow Creek Golf Club out in Middletown, MD.  The tournament now also carries the moniker of “The Buzz Suter Memorial Golf Tournament”.  Proceeds from the tournament benefit our Roost #4 charities. Though it was pouring rain in Howard County as our golfers drove west to Hollow Creek for the 9am tee time, the course remained dry and the sun made an appearance early in the afternoon. Thanks to everyone who came out to golf with Roost #4 … thanks to all of our hole sponsors … thanks to the staff at Hollow Creek for getting the signs placed, the carts lined-up, the course in tip-top shape, and for keeping our golfers fed & hydrated … and a special thanks to Frosty for making the whole thing happen! A good time was had by all!  Please enjoy these pictures from the tourney (with another thank you to Scott Habicht for recording the event!) …
