President’s note:

So nice to see everyone at the Naples Lakes at the monthly June event. Dawn again did an amazing job putting together a fun event!

As we get closer to our winter season, we are looking on ways to lower the costs of play for our members. We are actively looking for Sponsorships!

If you have a business or know of a business that would like to get in front of our group, please let me know so we can reach out to put together a package for them!

Played 10+ Holes & Got Rained Out? Still Post that Score - Here's How!

In case you are unable to finish your 18 hole round, due to weather or light conditions, you can still post your score for handicap purposes, as long as you completed at least 10 holes. Your score has to be entered as a hole by hole score on your GHIN app. 

For Example: You played 14 holes, scored a 70 so far, but are unable to finish due to a thunderstorm. You'll enter the current scores hole by hole.

Once you get to 15 you hit the post button since there a no more scores. 

A message will pop up that says your round is not finished would you like to post. 

You hit yes and your score will post and show the score as 70 (14). The app will calculate your handicap differential based on the holes played. 

9 Holes or Less?

If you are able to finish 9 holes only, please post your score as 9 holes. 

If you play less than 9 holes you won't be able to score, but probably get a rain check for a new round.


For more information and/or if you'd like to establish a handicap please contact Kerstin at
