LAWTON – (Aug. 2, 2023) Comanche Nation Entertainment is teeing up for the return of its third annual golf tournament to support Comanche Nation youth. The tournament will be held on Monday, August 7 at Fort Still Golf Course with funds benefitting Comanche Cares, Comanche Nation Entertainment’s community giving initiative.
