Coming in second with 11.5 points were Jennie Taylor and Kerstin Koenig.

Nancy Stone broke all records in >20 handicap category and finished first with a total of 15 points.

The closest to the pin were won by Marianne Meola (3 times) , Patty Gift and Jennie Taylor

Thursday League, Saturday League and Saturday Fun play will start up again in November.

Weekly Thursday Afternoon 9 & Unwind @ 4pm

We are a small, relaxed  group of golfers of varying skill levels (some do not even have a handicap) who like to play 9 holes.
Several of us still work so that is why we play at 4:00pm at a more centrally located course in North Naples, Bonita  or Estero.

If you would  like to be added to the Afternoon 9 & Unwind Email Notification List contact the volunteer coordinators, Renee Porter-Medley orTrisha Hare.
Afterwards, we usually go out for food & beverage at a nearby restaurant.
The coordinators will send out a weekly email confirming location, green fee and any other information.

HOLE-IN-ONE

EWGA SWFL Hole-in-One Insurance
 
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 SWFL Chapter 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!                    


If you do not see your name on THIS LIST and you have paid please contact:
