The American Lake Veterans Golf Course in Tacoma is an accessible course for injured and disabled veterans. Because the funding for the course was eliminated, community members and golf all-stars, including Jack Nicklaus, have rallied to improve the course for all veterans, not just the able-bodied ones. Today, there are free clinics and golf available to disabled golfers. There also is free golf for VA hospital patients seven days a week and a free indoor practice facility. The course is operated and maintained by an all-volunteer crew.
