Putting with Courage

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.
