“dig deep, hit ‘em straight, help make a difference, and have a lot of fun!”
The Gunny loved his golf, to him a round was 36 holes and 54 sounded better. He would have wanted you to come join us on the 16th to honor both him and all of our military members.

What many do not know about R Lee Ermey was his tireless devotion to our Military and our Veterans. One of the organziations he annually supported was
Homeless Veteran Services of Dallas (a registered 501c3) located near the Dallas VA hospital and run by Gunny's friend and fellow Viet Nam era Marine, Ken Watterson.
100% of the proceeds go to Homeless Veteran Services of Dallas
Since opening in 2012, HVSD has served over 65,000 of our most vunerable veterans and their families by offering a day center via the Veteran Resource Center, employment training, meals & clothing for homeless veterans, showers and laundry facilities and the Stop One suicide prevention program.
Oh yeah, we plan to do this Gunny Style and have a great deal of fun while honoring the memory of Gunny R Lee Ermey and supporting an organization doing great work for our most vunerable Veterans.
We will be joined by multiple celebrity golfers from the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers as well at 12th Sgt Major of the Marine Corps Gene Overstreet, Tournament Guest of Honor and Gunny's brother and frequent golf partner, tournament host Jack Ermey.
