USGA to Honor Veterans on February 18

FAR HILLS NJ - On February 18, the United States Golf Association Museum will host a day of programming honoring all veterans and active military.  Renee Powell, daughter of World War Two veteran William Powell, will share her father's legacy as a veteran, and as a designer and operator of the Clearview Golf Course in East Canton Ohio.

William Powell's life and legacy are captured in the "More Than a Game" Exhibit currently on display at the Golf Museum.

Renee Powell is an accomplished golfer, who competed in the NCAA at Ohio University and Ohio State University, then on the LPGA tour from 1967-1980.  She began playing golf at age three at the golf club founded by her father.  After leaving the professional tour, Powell founded Clearview HOPE, a program to help female veterans find healing through the game of golf.

Ms. Powell will bring her father's story to life.  William Powell served in the military at a time when even the Armed Forces were segregated.  Determined to make a difference after he left the military, Powell bought land in the area of Canton, Ohio and founded the Clearview Golf Course.  His work was historic because he was the first African-American to build, own and operate a golf course in America.  Clearview Golf Course is Clearview HOPE's headquarters.

The programs will be held at 10:30 am and 2:00 pm on Saturday, February 18.  Reservations are required to attend either program.  Seating is limited.  Admission is free for all veterans and military personnel.  R.S.V.P. to kgianetti@usga.org no later than February 10.
