Disc Golf is a pretty underrated activity to do outdoors, but if you can get out on the course just one time, it will become something that you'll want to keep on doing! Even in the rain!
This group of Veterans and some Active Duty all braved the rain Saturday December 3rd, 2022 at the Cameron Park Lake Disc Golf Course. We had some nice hot coffee, saw some really good shots, and of course had some great conversations. Thank you El Dorado Disc Sports for hosting this group of veterans and we look forward to the next one on January 14th!
It seemed like John knew a thing or two about Disc Golf before coming out! He took down first place with a score of 8 under par! TSgt John Rodriguez is currently stationed at Travis AFB assigned to the 21st Airlift Squadron as a Squadron Aviation Resource Manager. Living in Vacaville, John runs the Lagoon Valley's Team Underground Disc Golf Club. Thanks for coming out John!
This monthly event is for all Veterans of the United States Military and is intended to introduce the great sport of Disc Golf and encourage Veterans to spend time outdoors together. Research has shown a strong connection between time spent with peers in nature and reduced stress, anxiety, and depression. We believe Veterans deserve a fun and engaging peer support system that can provide stability and recovery for those who have gone through the same struggles.
