ASHLAND, Ore. — When the Veterans Memorial Golf Course closed at the White City VA center, the Veterans Golf Club of Southern Oregon stepped in.
They wanted to make sure that local veterans could still continue to use golf as a therapeutic outlet.
"We watch them grow," Tony Yanez, president of the Veterans Golf Club of Southern Oregon. "Not only do they get better at the game of golf... [but also] we actually see them start to mellow out."
They even donate sets of clubs to veterans who can't afford them on their own, so that they can continue to heal as they practice and play golf.
