This week, Las Colinas Country Club welcomes the return of the Warrior Open, a competitive 36-hole golf tournament that honors U.S. service members who serve and sacrifice to defend the United States of America. This tournament also honors the many organizations that support the military and their families, and Las Colinas Country Club could not be more proud to welcome participants.
After a warm-up round yesterday, the first official round of the Warrior Open begins today with warrior-only competition. Tomorrow the warriors will be paired with PGA tour professionals for an exciting 18-hole Pro-Am. During the tournament, service members have the opportunity to chat with President Bush, who frequently travels around to every hole visiting the players and taking pictures with family members.
"We will crown a champion. More importantly, we will honor all those who serve and sacrifice to defend our freedom." –President George W. Bush
The Warrior Open is a part of the Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative, whose mission is to honor the service and sacrifice of post-9/11 veterans and military families by improving their well-being and unleashing their potential.
We are proud to open our Club to these extraordinary service members, and look forward to an amazing tournament. We wish the participants luck, and thank them for their service and sacrifice.
