“I am only one of the thousands of veterans benefiting from golf at American Lake. Unlike many veterans, I was lucky not to lose legs or arms in combat. But when a stroke left me partially paralyzed, the golf program at American Lake helped my recovery. Our new Rehabilitation and Learning Center, along with nine more holes, will give every disabled veteran the chance they deserve."
"Golf is mostly understood to be a ‘gentleman’s’ sport and the whole feeling around it is just the opposite of a war setting. Administering a nine hole course with this kind of demand is tough to do in the current, second-hand trailer that we use. Tripping over each other to help veterans isn’t what we have in mind for the future.”

“These guys defended the great country of the United States of America and it’s a pleasure to be part of their lives. I can’t give enough for these people. These are guys, of all races and backgrounds, who defended our great country. When I look around here I see those who’ve served, during their military careers, and those who continue to serve in the capacity of a golf course volunteer. It makes for meaningful lives."
