Women's League Shootout Thursday
The LPN women's league comes to a close this Thursday, with a shootout beginning at 5:30 p.m. followed by a wrap-up dinner. Advance sign-up is needed for the shootout, so if you haven't yet registered, contact the pro shop at 755-2024. There will be two age divisions for the shootout - those who are 60 and over, and those under 60 years of age. League members who don't play in the shootout are welcome as spectators. There is no cost for the shootout or awards dinner.

Talk Like a Pirate Open is Sept. 15
The 8th Annual Talk Like a Pirate Open will be Sunday, Sept. 15, with an 11 a.m. cannon ball start. This four-person best-shot tournament uses a mixture of 2-inch, 4-inch and 8-inch cups on the greens. An entry form is available here. Call the pro shop for more information.
LPN Eagles Club Outing Sept. 18
The 2013 LPN Eagles Club outing will be Sept. 18, with a shotgun start at noon. Check in at Spikes beginning at 11:30 a.m. Participants must be a member of the Eagles Club. Scoring an Eagle (gross or net) in an LPN sanctioned event, or making an Eagle in the presence of another Eagle Club member, makes a person eligible for the club.
The next step is paying the one-time entry fee of $20, which covers the cost of a Pukka Golf cap with the LPN Eagle Club logo, and entry into the Eagles Club outing the first year. After the first year, there is a $5 entry fee to play in the outing. Additional Eagles Club caps can be purchased in the pro shop at discount pricing.
More information about the Eagles Club outing is available here. Sign-up by calling the pro shop at 755-2024.
