Summary

Summary

The triumphant story of William J Powell, the only African American to design, build, and operate his own public golf course. The World War 2 veteran overcame racism and limited funds to make his life's dream come true, only to be rebuffed from PGA membership. Eventually he was accepted by the PGA and today his strength and dignity are the hallmarks of a legendary career.
