Ozzie Newsome Bridge Builder Celebrity Golf Classic

On June 26, 2009, Greene County PARA golf participants took part in the 9th Annual Bridge Builder Celebrity Golf Classic that was held at the Ol’Colony Golf Course in Tuscaloosa. It was sponsored by the Alpha Tau Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.

At this event, the participants received free golf lessons from the staff at First Tee of Tuscaloosa. They got a chance to hit the ball off the tee and putt on the green. They also got the opportunity to interact with other kids from surrounding areas.

In addition, the golf participants met Ozzie Newsome, the general manager of the Baltimore Ravens, and other members of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.

See more photos of the participants in this event in our Golf Photo Gallery.
