Welcome to american lake Veterans golf course
Current course hours are 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.
This course exists solely because of dedicated volunteers. Thanks to golf legend Jack Nicklaus, the nation’s only golf course designed for the rehabilitation of wounded and disabled veterans now offers our deserving veterans a first class, entirely ADA-accessible, 18-hole golf course. Learn about our volunteers on our YouTube video.
As veterans learn that playing golf is possible, no matter what their disability, they regain their personal pride of accomplishment, of control, of success—even if it’s just a putt. As they gain confidence on the course, they find themselves surrounded by others who have been there and care.
The golf course was designed as a place of respite rather than rehabilitation, and the needs of the disabled were not considered. Still, it was a valued asset of the hospital and served patients healing from all types of injuries for many years.
