Golf Lessons for Injured Vets

By John Campbell, TV9 Sports

Riverside-Cedar Rapids golf consultant Lou King had an idea, he has run with it and now things are rolling with the G-I-V-E program.

Under it, injured vets have been given free golf lessons this fall at Riverside Casino and Golf Resort. The teachers have been members of the Iowa Section PGA. They have donated their time. Riverside has donated its facilities. Hy-Vee has donated food and clubs to the vets.

It has all been coordinated by the Iowa City VA Medical Center.  17 injured vets completed the first session. A VA spokesman says they have a waiting list for future golf lessons.
