A lot of planning goes into the design of a golf course. Landscapers must survey the area, establish any obstacles and probably beautify the grounds before the first player can ever place their tees in the pitch. When developing a course for the physically impaired, the complications only grow - but one course in Tacoma, Washington, that hopes to be a new destination for disabled veterans is getting some design help from a very familiar face.

Jack "The Golden Bear" Nicklaus, a golfing legend who holds 73 wins on the PGA tour, is helping to redesign and expand the 18-hole layout of the American Lake Veterans' Golf Course, an expansive plot of land that was built specifically with disabled players in mind.

Nicklaus, who has designed more than 300 courses in his career, highlighted this effort as one that he will remember for a long time.

"All projects are very important to me. But this one is out of love," he told USA Today. "I'm a hired gun to do things a lot of places. But I'm not a hired gun here. I'm doing this because I want to do it."
