The Tournament would not have been possible without the support of its generous sponsors and donors: Vasari Country Club, Naples Acura, Audi Naples, VW of Naples, DeMarco Tile, Calusa Construction, Mike Horn Insurance, Hawthorn PNC Family Wealth, Studio A.D. Architect, Kathi Schweikhardt (Realtor) of Premiere Realty Plus Co., Bluewater of South Florida, Inc., Ferguson Waterworks, CFA Society, Woodruff Institute, the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens, Royal Woods Golf and Country Club, Hunter's Ridge Country Club, Southwest Florida Brewery Tours, Broken Niblick, Outback Steakhouse, Tacos n' Tequila, The Golf Guys, Joey D's, Dick's Sporting Goods, PBS Construction, and Daane Properties. Please make sure to show your appreciation for these local establishments by considering each of them first for any goods or services you might require. Thank you all for your immense help and support! We look forward to making next year's Golf Tournament even better (which, considering how amazing this year's was, seems impossible)! GO GATORS!!!!

August 6, 2015 - On August 5, 2015, the Gator Club of Naples hosted its second annual Send-Off for those Collier County area students who will be entering their freshman year at the University of Florida beginning the Summer of 2015, Fall of 2015, and Spring of 2016 semesters. These “Baby Gators” are, by far, the most impressive and the most intelligent young adults that the Club has had the pleasure of meeting.

Also, the Gator Club of Naples would like to thank its generous Send-Off Reception sponsors: Quarles & Brady LLP and Moe’s Southwest Grill. Thank you and go Gators!
