DALLAS (AP) - Former President George W. Bush will host a two-day golf tournament in October for members of the U.S. military wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

His presidential center announced the “Warrior Open” in a statement issued Wednesday. The statement says the 36-hole competition will be held at Las Colinas Country Club in the Dallas suburb of Irving Oct. 10-11.

Applications for the tournament must be submitted by July 15. Qualifications include sustaining serious injury in the war on terror.

In April, Bush joined people wounded while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan on a three-day mountain bike ride in West Texas.
