The military is a key part of San Antonio and the Valero Texas Open. Many enlisted and retired men and women from the armed forces take leaves of absence to be volunteers at the Valero Texas Open. And from a historic perspective, the Valero Texas Open is the only PGA TOUR event to have been played on a military golf course (Fort Sam Houston Golf Course in 1950, 1951, 1956 & 1960).
The freedom assured for us by those who defend America make events like the Valero Texas Open possible. We are proud to honor the armed forces.
