Maybe they can charge public players a few bucks to play. That might be a win win.

I don't see that happening seeing how public use isn't the intent or purpose of the course. P2P would be more like a win (for John Q. Public) lose (for the VA).

I don't think anyone quite understands federal funding.

I don't know if you mean that because it is federally funded, all taxpayers should have access, or if you mean that not all federally funded programs are open to all. I would say the latter is the case here. There are a lot of federally funded facilities available only to specific groups, particularly the military. Kudos to them for setting up alternative recreational opportunities for their patients. Beats shuffleboard I bet.

The restricted access to the course almost makes that much better. I haven't seen it yet, but for those that have they say it's pretty sweet. And being able to brag just that you got play it, is icing on the cake. I'll probably just walk it (if I"m allowed) and then try to mimic it at another location in town. So I can say I played a something similar.
NO!......Welp!?

Or maybe you can just have a dream about it. I bet unicorns will be there. :P

Really? I would think it would be good therapy for inpatients and outpatients to be honest. Don't get me wrong, I'm for massive spending cuts on the military. But after 10 years of wringing every last drop of duty from a tiny number of people, with multiple deployments etc. I feel that vets deserve whatever they get.

I'm just saying the cost of this course was not a hardship. They aren't looking to bring in any money. They just want an activity for staff and vets.

The courses original purpose was for staff wellness. It is not off limits to patients but it was also not installed specifically for them.

Guess I see that now on Shane's first post. Wellness is good too though. Most companies have gyms, etc. Still has my vote for good use of wellness funds.

We could all go buy green surgery clothes; just a idea.
