LPN Weekly - 3/30/14

Lake Panorama National Golf Leagues

We're just a month away from LPN league kickoffs. Men's leagues are Wednesdays, with several options - an 18-hole noon league with play from either white or red tees, a 9-hole 3 p.m. league with the same tee options, and a 9-hole 6 p.m. league with all players teeing from the white markers. A Men's Stag April 30 includes cocktails and munchies at 5:30 p.m. and a program and raffle drawing at 7 p.m. League play begins May 7. See more here.

The LPN 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. A kickoff dinner is May 1 at 5:30 p.m. The evening will include dinner, program, gifts, prizes and details about the 2014 league. The season opens May 8 with a mixer, followed by league competition beginning May 14. Learn more about the LPN women's league here.
