The Warrior Open is a 36-hole competition at Las Colinas Country Club in the Dallas area on September 26-28, 2013. The tournament will honor those who serve and sacrifice to defend the United States of America and will herald the many organizations that give their time, talents and resources to support the men and women of our military and their families.
