After leaning of Salute Military Golf Association's work with wounded warriors, Matt Rosenberger, a competitive high school golfer in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, was inspired to host a fundraising golf tournament to benefit SMGA. Matt and his father Glenn Rosenberger founded the North Texas Wounded Warrior Golf Association and hosted two successful charity golf tournaments in 2011 and 2012. These events raised over $22,000 for SMGA and hosted 16 wounded warriors.
With a partnership with Timarron Country Club and a team of dedicated volunteers, the NTWWGA became a SMGA full-service chapter in 2013. The inaugural North Texas Warrior Golf Clinic was held in the spring of 2013. This clinic, patterned after SMGA's eight-week clinic series, hosted 11 North Texas wounded warriors. All participants qualified to receive the TaylorMade clubs. In 2013, the NTWWGA also coordinated 93 free playing opportunities to 20 wounded warriors who participate in its programs.
The North Texas Wounded Warrior Golf Association is a 501(c)(3) federally-recognized public charity, run by a Board of Directors that includes two wounded warriors. The NTWWGA plans to host the North Texas Warrior Golf Clinic and the North Texas Wounded Warrior Charity Golf Tournament on an annual basis.
