junior golf


Junior Golf at Lake Panorama National continues to be successful thanks to the help from LPN members, organizations and businesses whose contributions are invaluable to the success of the program. Guthrie County State Bank and Lake Panorama Association have contributed greatly to our programs.

The Lake Panorama National Pro Shop carries a variety of golf equipment for junior golfers. We are a partner with U.S. Kids Golf — the No. 1 Brand in junior golf worldwide. We also stock junior equipment from Wilson Sports. We use a fitting method to ensure juniors have the right length of golf clubs. In addition to clubs, we sell gloves, golf shoes and many other accessories for the junior golfer.

Don’t hesitate to call the Pro Shop if you have any questions regarding Junior Golf at LPN.
