BIG RAPIDS, Mich. – Suzy Green-Roebuck, a member of the Ohio State women’s golf team from 1986-89, was inducted into the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame over the weekend at Ferris State University’s Katke Golf Club.
“It’s humbling to be in the Hall of Fame,” said Green-Roebuck who joins her father Pete Green, a 1986 inductee, in giving the Hall of Fame its first parent-child members. “It’s hard to find the right words to describe how wonderful it feels.”
Green-Roebuck is joined in the 2017 induction class by: PGA Master Professional Bob Ackerman, PGA Professional Brian Cairns, PGA Tour veteran Tom Gillis, the late Alex Ross of Detroit who was a U.S. Open winner 110 years ago, and Michigan State University women’s golf coach Stacy Slobodnik-Stoll. Together this group is tied with 1990 for the largest class in history and brings the overall number of inductees to 119.
Green-Roebuck won her third Michigan Women’s Open title last summer at age 49. She played for seven years on the LPGA Tour in the 1990s, and was a four-time winner on what is now the LPGA’s Symetra Tour. As an amateur she won the Michigan Women’s Amateur among other titles.
