The second annual Chris Kyle Legendary Classic will take place at the Tierra Verde Golf Club, in Arlington TX on Tuesday, November 6, with a monster celebration benefitting the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation to take place that night at the all new $1.1 billion Texas Live! Entertainment venue that connects Globe Life Park with AT&T Stadium.
The Chris Kyle Legendary Classic, presented by the R.J. Carroll Company was launched last year in conjunction with the City of Arlington to celebrate the life of the American Sniper, Chris Kyle – a proud Texan who called nearby Midlothian home.
The event was used to raise money for the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation – which was launched on Veterans Day in 2014 in Chris’ honor by his wife, Taya Kyle. The Foundation provides experiences to enhance the marriages of military service, veteran and first responder couples.
The Chris Kyle Legendary Classic, presented by the R.J. Carroll Company allows teams of four to enter the competition and take on the 18 holes of the challenging Tierra Verde layout at 7005 Golf Club Drive, Arlington, TX.
Various sponsorship levels are available – as is the option for companies to sponsor teams containing service members and allow them to have an enjoyable experience from the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.
18 local legends that served in the military or first responder communities are honored on each of the holes.
The name – the Chris Kyle Legendary Classic – was coined by Chris’ son – who, along with his sister and mother, Taya – play an integral part in the planning for the event with its organizer – Constable Clint Burgess.
“The Chris Kyle Legendary Classic was an amazing event last year and I think this year is going to be even bigger,” said Taya Kyle – Executive Director, Chris Kyle Frog Foundation. “The addition of the Texas Live! celebration to Honor Chris and all our military service, veterans and first responders will be a great event that everyone can get involved in.
“The City of Arlington has worked so hard to make it a week long Veterans Day Celebration and these two events will be central to that.
“Once again Constable Clint Burgess and his partner on this event, Paul Faulks of 3Di Sign Design have done an enormous job in pulling this together and we’re just so pleased they have chosen the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation as the not-for-profit partner.
“We had a great turnout for the Chris Kyle Legendary Classic last year and this year – with the Cowboys kicking things off with Monday Night Football and the Texas Live! event – there is no better time to be in Arlington celebrating everything that is great about America and honoring our Veterans.”
The event is a major third quarter fundraiser for the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation. The Foundation provides experiences to married couples in the military, veteran and first responder communities.
There are several levels of programs that couples can take part in from Date Night Out experiences at special events, to a Revitalization Retreat – a short stay vacation and longer programs such as the Empowered Spouses Retreat weekend and also the Mastering Your Marriage program launched in 2017 – which is a curriculum-based, six month clinical trial program conducted with Baylor University and the University of Texas.
On average in 2018, the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation has provided experiences to eight couples per week across its programs and is looking to expand on that.

The Tierra Verde Golf Club is located on 7005 Golf Club Drive, Arlington, TX.
