JWU Rec Day

Every Friday the Jaywalker U students head out into the Rocky Mountains for a day of fun in sobriety. Today the JWU students spent the day golfing in beautiful Glenwood Springs, CO.

Jaywalkers Renew Passion for the Links

Jaywalkers Sweep RVR Club Championship “ Having stepped away from competitive golf for the last five years of my life. I was extremely excited and slightly nervous when Jaywalker presented myself and three other Jaywalkers with the opportunity to play in the River Valley Ranch Club Championship. This event would consist of two rounds of golf with prizes being awarded for both the low gross and low net scores. Setting relatively high expectations for myself, I made every attempt to ready my game for the tournament. I had played solid golf in the weeks leading up to the tournament and was ready see what I could do against a competitive field.

Tee Time

“Golf is the closest game to the game we call life.  You get bad breaks from good shots, you get good breaks from bad shots – but you have to play the ball as it lies.” -Bobby Jones Golf is not only a game that teaches you how to deal with good and bad breaks, it teaches you about respect, integrity, honesty, problem solving, and so much more.  Jaywalker Lodge feels that these and other lessons learned through the game of golf, translate directly into a successful life in recovery.
