Each spring, we conduct the North Texas Warrior Golf Clinic at Timarron Country Club in Southlake, Texas. We host between 12 and 18 warriors at this clinic. We provide a custom-fit set of TaylorMade golf clubs to those who met attendance requirements. See the Warrior Programs tab for more information about this clinic
We maintain relationships with over 50 warrior golfers in North Texas. Throughout the year, we coordinate playing opportunities for these soldiers. Golfers from our program have participated in events at the HP Byron Nelson Championship and the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. From our team of sponsors, our golfers have also received playing opportunities at several charity and corporate golfing events. If you have a playing opportunity available for wounded warrior golfers at your corporate event or as your guests at a tournament, please contact Curtis Fowler, NTWWGA Director of Operations, at 817-773-6836 or email@example.com to coordinate an invitation.
