Chili Dipper Open Next Sunday

The Chili Dipper Open is next Sunday, October 21, with an 11 a.m. shotgun start. This is an 18-hole two-person best shot tournament.

The 17th annual Iditarod will be held Sunday, November 4, at the Lake Panorama National golf course. This four-person, best-shot tournament involves playing 12 holes on a redesigned LPN course. For instance, the fourth hole will be a 449-yard par 5. Players will tee off from left of the #5 green and play to the #4 green, checking for traffic on the road before hitting to the green. The fifth hole is a 631-yard par 6, making it the #1 handicap hole on the Iditarod course. Players begin at the #10 white tees and play to the #17 green. Entry fees are $10 per person for LPN members and $30 for non-members. There will be a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Enter by calling the pro shop at 641-755-2024.

The Panorama West Clubhouse has a community room and kitchen that is great for holiday parties and family events. Call 641-755-2250 to discuss open dates. Since the clubhouse pro shop is closed for the season, this number isn't answered as often. Leave a message and someone will return your call.

Nightly and Monthly Lodging Available at LPN

Options to rent a townhome at Lake Panorama nightly or monthly have expanded, because of the dissolution of the Clover Ridge Interval Owners Association. A recent contract between Lake Panorama National and the timeshare association gives LPN the responsibility for reservations, check-ins, housekeeping and maintenance for the rest of 2018, and into 2019. The LPN already had contracts with private owners of eight townhomes and 27 guesthouse rooms to provide these services, and renting these private units is the top priority.

To discuss availability and make reservations, call the LPN front desk at 641-755-2080 or 800-879-1917 during business hours, which are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. Or send an email to lpnlodging@lakepanoramanational.org.
