https://www.ventrac.com/ At American Lake Veterans Golf Course they fight for America, they love America and they love American made tractors.Solely operated, maintained and managed by volunteers, American Lake Veterans Golf Course is a semi-private course set up for disabled and handi-capped veterans. Their mission is to provide rehabilitation and support to those who have given so much to our country. Being the only fully ADA-accessible, 18-hole golf course means they can help veterans regain their confidence and pride in accomplishment with a rewarding game of golf, no matter their disability.Because they operate their equipment with the help of volunteers, they need machines that are safe and easy to use for anyone. They use their Ventrac for mowing around the sand traps, on the greens out front, and any hilly areas.Leaving a very light footprint on the golf course, the Ventrac 4500 is still able to get things done no matter the weather. In Lakewood, Washington heavy rains are no worry for the volunteers who run the Ventrac. The tractor handles wet conditions on the course where a lot of their bigger machines cannot.Everything they do at American Lake Veterans Golf Course is because of their love for their veterans and every volunteer is there to make a difference in a veteran’s life. They believe the American made Ventrac tractor is a perfect match for maintaining and caring for their golf course and veterans.Products featured in this video:Ventrac 4500: https://www.ventrac.com/products/tractors/4500 Contour Deck: https://www.ventrac.com/products/attachments/mj840 Dual Wheels: https://www.ventrac.com/products/accessories/70.4067 For more information, visit https://www.ventrac.com/ Find a dealer near you! https://www.ventrac.com/dealers Get a FREE catalog! https://www.ventrac.com/contact/catalog Subscribe here! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0aiC7V2JS3nh11R5tRuIUw Connect with Us!Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ventrac/ Instagram - @ventrac_tractorsTwitter - @ventracThis place just gets better and better and we do it because of our love for our veterans and what they have done the sacrifices that they have made to make our country free. It's a semi-private golf course. It's set up for disabled veterans and handicapped veterans. That is fully 88 compatible. The front nine has been redesigned to make it that way and the back nine which was designed by Jack Nicklaus was constructed that way. Those people who can't stand or move very readily they can go anywhere that a golfer can walk. When these guys come over to our golf course we let them know no is not in our vocabulary. When they come in their shoulders are slumped forward their heads down but by the time they leave this place their shoulders are back they're smiling and they're giving someone grief and that's what we want from our veterans. Since our veterans are American-made the ventrac is American-made. It's just a great pairing. I have two Purple Hearts being wounded in Vietnam. I love America. I fight for America. And I like american-made. We love the Ventrac especially around the sand traps. We use it on the front around all the greens and then on any of the hilly areas. This thing is fantastic. We've got some steep steep undulation here and with the contour head on the ventrac we have no problem with scalping. We have no problems with anyone driving it. We get so much rain here that when the course is really wet that machine can get out here and work where a lot of our other bigger machines cannot work and put a very light footprint on the golf course and still good things done. The volunteers that we have here they're here because of their love for our veterans and everything we do at this golf course is because of our love for our veterans and most of us are veterans and a lot of us are combat veterans and we're just giving back to the guys we love that we served with.
