WELCOME

Welcome to the Southwest Florida Chapter of the LPGA Amateur Golf Association. 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.

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!
