Top Dressing & Cart Path Only at LPN
The Lake Panorama National Golf Course will remain open for play as long as weather and course turf conditions permit. In the annual effort to protect our turfgrass during the winter months, and ensure course conditions are optimal for next spring, top dressing of all greens will begin tomorrow. The top dress will remain on the greens over the winter for turf protection.
Also beginning November 20, all golf carts must remain on the cart paths, including to and from the golf course. The Irrigation system has been shut down for the winter, so it is important golf cart traffic remain off the turf. Golf cart tracks made in November will still be visible in the spring. We hope the weather provides more days of golf. Thanks in advance for helping protect our turf during the upcoming winter months.
