Clarksville, TN – On a day that would have been perfect for the game that he loved, longtime outstanding golfer and advocate of junior golf in the Clarksville area, the late Dr. Keith Peterson was honored with a statue at Swan Lake Golf Course October 21st.
In a ceremony near the putting green, and preceded by a short address from Clarksville mayor Kim McMillan to a gathering of around 75 friends and family, a bronze statue of a young golfer was unveiled to honor Dr. Peterson, who passed away in May.
“It totally blows my mind and it would his too,” said Peterson’s wife of over 43 years Sally. “He fell in love with this statue when he saw it years ago and he always wanted to get one. So just the statue itself would have been amazing, but to have it near the putting green is perfect because it was his heaven and just a perfect place for him.”
Dr. Keith Peterson’s statue was unveiled Wednesday October 21st at Clarksville’s Swan Lake Golf Course.
