  • President: 1 year term

Our 3rd and last even in this summer Match Play Series will take place on 9/12 at Naples Lakes Country Club with a morning shot gun. Not only will we have prices for the event winner but we are also crowing our overall Summer Match Play Champion in each category. A lot of players still have a chance for the overall win so we hope to see you there for a great competition.
