Fifty teams and 400 golfers competed in the finals November 2-3 with a day of four ball match play and a day of single match play.

The Canton Birdie Bunch team finished in FIRST PLACE!  The winning team members were Ann Godwin, Doreen Smith, Kathy Dent, Debbie Kandel, Bobbi Barchiesi, Kandy Jones, Debbie Quinn, and Mary Peppard. Kandy Jones played for Debbie Johns in the finals since Debbie was unable to travel to Texas.

HISTORIC Clearview Golf Club

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.
Donate to the Clearview Legacy Foundation,
P.O. Box 30196,
East Canton, OH 44730

Renee Powell learned the game of golf from her father and went on to the LPGA Tour. She is a member of the LPGA and PGA and was recently one of the first women inducted as an honorary member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews. Clearview's Head Golf Professional, she is known as one of America's top teachers.  

Larry Powell is Clearview's Course Superintendent. His work has been recognized by NASA and the Golf Course Superintendents.

Tuesdays: Women's Impact, Inc (you must be a member to play) hosts a league
Wednesdays: Ladies on the Links 3-hole league includes an instructional component and feeds into the 9-hole league.
Wednesdays: Ladies on the Links 9-hole league
Thursdays: Thursday morning ladies 9-hole league  (the longest running ladies league at a public course in Stark County)

Congratulations to Renee Powell on being one
of the first seven female members of the R & A.

Baby it's cold outside!

Throughout the winter when it's just too cold to golf, we hold monthly Euchre nights.  Be sure to watch your email for the announcements and join us so you don't lose track of your golfin' buddies.  We do a lot of talking about 'waiting for spring'.
