Naples´ first golf course, wth boundaries of Third St. South, Fifth Ave. South and Eighth Ave. South, was created in the 1920´s. Golf balls were often lost in the white sand, or to alligators who occasionally mistook them for their eggs. W.J. Pulling won the first official golf tournament in 1925.

The sign was sponsored by the McCabe Family.
