January Links Specials

Mid-week dinner specials in the Links Restaurant and Lounge have returned. Tuesdays feature home-cookin' entrees, with Wednesdays being "South of the Border" nights, and Thursdays offering Italian cuisine. This week, turkey and noodles will be featured on Tuesday. Wednesday's special is tacos, with chips, salsa, Spanish rice and refried beans. Spaghetti with breadsticks and a tossed salad is the "That's Italian" special this Thursday. All dinner specials are $9.95 plus tax and tip.

The Links is open Tuesday through Friday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Breakfast is served Saturday and Sunday 8 to 11 a.m. The Links is closed on Mondays. Come out of the cold and into The Links this week for some great food and friendship!

New in 2014 - Partners Club

Two other central Iowa golf clubs have joined the LPN to form a "Partners Club" for 2014. Members of the LPN can play both Tournament Club of Iowa at Polk City and Legacy Golf Club at Norwalk Monday through Thursday for $30 plus tax. Under this agreement, LPN members will be able to make their own tee times at these two courses, because each will have an LPN membership list at the pro shop counter. Any accompanying guests must pay the full rate.

This is similar to the reciprocal program that has been in place for several years. In 2013, there were 11 courses in this program that makes it possible for LPN members to play at reduced rates, with tee times arranged by the LPN pro shop. Confirmations for participating clubs for 2014 are being sought, and a full list of reciprocal clubs should be finalized by early February.

Partners Club - Reciprocal Program - two more reasons to join the LPN in 2014!

Early Bird Discount Ends January 31

If you haven't yet paid your 2014 golf membership, now is the time. All memberships paid in full by Jan. 31 will be at the "Early Bird" discounted rates. The membership applications show the advantage of this payment option, or call the pro shop at 641-755-2024 for details. Winter pro shop hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, closed Sunday and Monday.

Planning your 2014 Golf

A good way to keep from getting discouraged during these cold winter months is to start making plans for summer golf. The LPN website has been updated with 2014 dates for tournaments it will host, including those open only to LPN members and those open to non-members. Entry forms for these tournaments are being created in the pro shop now, and should be posted online by the end of the month. In the meantime, check out the tournaments and dates here and start to fill up your 2014 golf calendar.

Also new to the website is the 2014 LPN Golf Brochure. While this promotional brochure is geared to stay-and-play and Resort guests, it also includes details on 2014 green fees, new things on the golf course and at the conference center in 2014, and more. Copies of the brochure are available in the pro shop, in case you want to share with friends considering the LPN as a vacation destination this summer. The brochure also is online.
