Make Plans for 2014 Golf Leagues

While there still are about three months of winter to survive before golf leagues start, it's never too early to get your entry forms completed and returned with league fees.

Men's leagues are Wednesdays. There are several options from which to choose. An 18-hole noon league offers participants the opportunity to play from either the white or red tees. At 3 p.m., there is a nine-hole league available from both the red and white tees. A 6 p.m. nine-hole league includes all players teeing from the white tee markers. Some men choose to play in both the 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. leagues. Cost of all men's leagues is $55. A kickoff event will be held April 30 with league play beginning May 7.

The women's league is held each Thursday with registration at 5 p.m. and a shotgun start at 5:30 p.m. This nine-hole league involves two-person teams. Sign up with a partner, or as a single and you will be paired with a partner. If you don't want to commit to playing weekly, sign-up as a substitute. The league fee is $40. An opening tee-off dinner is scheduled for May 1 at a cost of $15. The season will open May 8 with a mixer, followed by league competition beginning May 15.

Entry forms were distributed with the membership packets in December. The forms, plus more details, also are available online under the men's and women's league tabs on the LPN golf membership page.

Date Change for Member-Guest Tournament

The date of the Guthrie County State Bank annual member-guest men's tournament is May 31-June 1. The events listing mailed with the membership packets had this tournament a week later. Please update your calendars with the new dates.

Play More Golf in 2014 - Join Panorama West

Sometimes you don't have time to play 18 holes at the LPN, or the LPN course isn't available because of a large tournament or outing. A great alternative is Panorama West.

Those who were not a member of Panorama West in 2013 can join for 2014 at a discount. For instance, a single 2014 golf membership is $160.50 for new members. That compares to $200.09 for LPA members at the single rate, and $241.29 for non-LPA members at the single rate. Discounts also are available in the couple, family and student categories.

This is a great opportunity to play more golf, at a great rate, on a great nine-hole course. More details about Panorama West membership, including forms for new members and 2014 returning members, are available online.
