Seeking Granite Club Sponsors

Lake Panorama National has a tee box sponsorship program that began in 2008 to support the construction of Spikes. Donor signs are made of granite, and Granite Club members can be businesses, organizations, couples or individuals. Funds are used for capital improvements at Lake Panorama National Resort. Seven holes remain available for 2018. The annual fee is $500, plus new members are asked to pay the $250 cost of their engraved granite sign.

Granite Club members receive a foursome of golf, including carts, when they pay a new membership or renew an existing membership. Club members also are recognized on the LPN website, in this LPN Weekly e-newsletter, and in an email to all LPN members. It can take a few weeks to get the granite signs completed and installed, so the sooner we get started, the sooner we can have your sign in place for the 2018 golf season. Contact John Dinnebier at 641-755-2080 if you, or your business, would like to become a 2018 Granite Club member.
