President George W. Bush to Host Third Annual Warrior Open Golf Tournament
The George W. Bush Presidential Center today opened applications for the third Warrior Open, a three-day golf tournament featuring members of the U.S. Armed Forces who served their country honorably and were severely wounded during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
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.
Applications for the tournament must be submitted via http://www.bushcenter.org/warrioropen by August 9, 2013.
To qualify for consideration, applicants must have been seriously injured in the war on terror during post 9/11 combat; be active-duty, retired, or honorably discharged; provide a valid GHIN number verifying a Golf Handicap Index of 20 or below; and, submit all application requirements by the deadline.
The Warrior Open is a program of the George W. Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative, which highlights the courage of U.S. military personnel and places an enduring spotlight on the sacrifice troops and their families make for our freedom.
