Looking Ahead to 2015 LPN Golf

2014 LPN golf club members now should have received renewal forms for the 2015 season. The mailing includes three types of golf membership applications. Regular memberships are available to both LPA members and non-members. There is a significant "early bird" discount available to those who pay in full by Jan. 31.

Better yet, pay in full by Dec. 30 and be entered into a drawing held the next day. The grand prize is a new set of Ping irons, with a retail value of $799. Three other prizes awarded will be a Titleist golf bag, a round of golf for four with carts, and a $100 pro shop gift certificate.

Also in the mailing are forms for special memberships for those who were not LPN golf members in 2014, and distance memberships for people who are not LPA members and who reside more than 18 miles from the LPN. A partial list of 2015 tournaments, plus application forms for both men's and women's leagues and the LPN Diner's Club also are included in the mailing. The three golf membership forms also are available here. Questions? Call the pro shop at 641-755-2024.

Panorama West Membership Statements Coming Soon

The Panorama West golf operation is managed by Lake Panorama National. Membership mailings for the 2015 Panorama West golf season are in the works, and will be sent soon to anyone who was a 2014 member. The mailing will include a statement for the 2015 season based on a person's 2014 membership category, plus other items such as trail fees and cart storage. Please review the statement to make sure you are being billed correctly for 2015, make checks payable to the LPN, and mail to 5071 Clover Ridge Road, Panora, IA 50216. To make changes to a 2015 membership, call Royce Shaffer at 641-755-2020 so he can adjust your account.

Both LPA members and non-members can purchase annual Panorama West memberships. LPA members who join annually receive a discount over non-members. For instance, a single membership for an LPA member is $210.09, compared to $253.35 for a non-member. These prices include tax.

New members joining in 2015 who were not members in 2014 can join at a discount that is available to both LPA members and non-members. This promotional rate is offered to encourage more people to purchase an annual membership at Panorama West. For 2015, singles can join for $168.53, couples for $258.41, families for $308.96 and students under 16 for $44.94. The new member form is available here.
