Golf Leagues Winding Down
The 2019 golf league season is coming to a close. The three LPN men's leagues and two women's leagues have ended weekly competition, and will wrap up their seasons this week with shootouts and awards.
At Panorama West, the Tuesday night men's league will finish this week. The Thursday morning men's league will wrap up their season with a shootout September 12. The Tuesday women's league has one more week of competition, then will finish the season with a best-shot tournament and awards luncheon September 3. Thanks to all who participated in these leagues, and we look forward to another great season in 2020.
Try the New Links Menus
Have you been in the Links in the past two weeks to look over the new menus? If not, we hope you will this week. The main menu is available for both lunch and dinner, plus a separate dinner menu with additional entrees and sides is inserted in the evenings.
The main menu includes “signature sandwiches” that includes long-time favorites, plus new sandwich offerings—Southwest Turkey, Cuban, French Dip and Philly. There also is a new “build-your-own” sandwich section. Choose one of four proteins—half-pound beef patty, pork tenderloin, six-ounce chicken breast, black bean burger—then add cheese and toppings to finish off your sandwich order.
Popular flatbreads and wraps remain, plus some new options. Salads and “shareables” round out the main menu. A choice of one side is included with all sandwiches and wraps, with a few additional sides available for an extra cost.
A new breakfast menu offers egg entrees, sandwiches and sides, plus pancakes, French toast, and Belgian waffles. The breakfast menu is available each Saturday and Sunday morning, and now offered one hour more each of those days, with serving beginning at 8 a.m. and extended until noon.
