LPN Weekly - 12/18/2016

Looking for Last Minute Gift?

Gift Cards can be purchased at the LPN front desk and are available in any denomination of your choosing. The LPN front desk is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. These cards can be used in The Links or the pro shop, and make great gifts and stocking stuffers for family and friends.

Holiday Hours

The LPN will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day, so staff can enjoy time with family. Normal hours will resume on Monday, December 26 and Monday, January 2.


New Year's Eve Special

International Solheim Cup Comes to Iowa

The 2017 Solheim Cup will be at Des Moines Golf and Country Club August 14-20. Every two years, the Solheim pits the top U.S. women golfers against the best European golfers. Des Moines Golf is the first 36-hole facility in the United States to host The Solheim Cup, which will allow the PING Junior Solheim Cup to be held at the same venue. The Junior Solheim Cup, patterned after The Solheim Cup, features the top 12 girls from the United States against those from Europe.

Tickets are available for purchase now, with a variety of packages and single day options. One current special offer includes a commemorative cap and two “Any Day Grounds” tickets for $100.

Several Lake Panorama National members have signed up as tournament volunteers. Volunteers pay $160 and are asked to work three shifts. In exchange, they receive volunteer credentials good for all seven days, free parking, a Solheim Cup logo golf shirt, jacket and cap or visor, bag, lanyard, insulated cup and commemorative pin, breakfast and lunch on work days, and are invited to a volunteer appreciation party. To learn more about the 2017 Solheim Cup, purchase tickets and register to volunteer, visit the event website.
