WELCOME

Welcome to the Southwest Florida Chapter of the LPGA Ladies Who Play. We formed the chapter in 1999 with ladies primarily in the Naples area. We recently changed our name from the Naples Chapter to the Southwest Florida Chapter, and our members stretch all the way from Marco Island to Naples to Ft. Myers and beyond to Cape Coral.

Summer Golf is Here!   
 
We will be continuing our Thursday Wandering Summer Golf and Lunch Program.
Space is Limited so register early.  

For those of you who have not participated in this group before, we play a rotating group of courses. This is not  a competitive league.  We have added some new courses our chapter either has not played, or not played in a while.  
Cost for play will vary based on club fees, but will be in the range of $50-$60 which includes lunch.  Lunch is always optional.  
Tee times will be in the AM, but subject to course availability.  Registration will be through 123 and open 2 weeks prior to play date.  Registration will close at noon on the Tuesday prior to play.  Come regularly, or when you see a course you have wanted to play but just have not had a chance. The full schedule is below.

HOLE-IN-ONE

Hole-in-One Insurance
 
Congratulations!
 
The tradition of celebrating the rare feat of a Hole-In-One with your fellow players is well established, and, as the odds of getting a hole in one, very roughly, are 12,500 to 1 for an amateur player, it is indeed reason to celebrate!
 
The resulting bar bill from the celebration round of drinks traditionally bought for fellow players that day can be daunting, which is why we encourage you to purchase  Hole-in-One Insurance for just $5. Don't be that person that just sneaks away without celebrating your shot of a lifetime!
 
The fund was established to help subsidize the traditional celebration of buying drinks should a Chapter member get a coveted Hole-in-One in any official Southwest Florida Chapter event or outing.
Having submitted a paid bar bill receipt to the Event Chair, the player will be reimbursed by the Chapter Board for that expense, not to exceed the total amount of funds held in the Hole-In-One account, which fluctuates depending on how many Chapter members participate, and how many Hole-In-Ones are paid out.
 
Following payout for Hole-In-One celebrations, should the fund fall below $250, participating members will be asked to reinvest $5 to help cover the next celebration(s). Members can elect to participate in the insurance program at any time by paying the $5 fee at any Chapter related event.
  
Only members that have paid for the insurance in advance will be reimbursed for Hole-In-One celebration expenses so don't run the risk. Your next round may be the one......  SIGN UP NOW!
