Clearview Golf Course's layout with gently rolling terrain and undulating greens serves as a challenge to experienced golfers, yet also provides an enjoyable round for those players new to the game.
Course architect and owner William "Bill" Powell began construction of Clearview Golf Course in 1946. The first nine holes were opened for business two years later. The second nine was added in 1978.
With the help of his wife, Marcella who passed away in June of 1996, and their children Renee and Larry, Clearview has gained notoriety for being the first and thus far, only golf course designed, built, owned and operated by an African-American.
You can help to preserve “America’s Course" and the Legacy of this National Historic Site. A Tribute to Mr. Powell, who passed away December 31, 2009.
