Green Fees Fall for Fall

Green fees at the LPN will decrease beginning Wednesday, Oct. 1. The rate will be $36 daily until 3 p.m. and $26 from 3 p.m. until dusk. These rates, which include shared cart, will remain in place until March 31, 2015. With some great fall weather ahead, the reduced rates make this a good time to invite friends and family for a round of golf. Book tee times at 641-755-2024.   

Oxley Honored by Iowa Section PGA

The Iowa Section PGA has announced LeRoy Oxley as the recipient of the 2014 Iowa PGA Distinguished Service Award. The award honors outstanding individuals and organizations for their contributions and service, and for inspiring others. Recipients are selected for their display of leadership, integrity, volunteering, sportsmanship and enthusiasm for the game of golf.

This is the first year for this award, so Oxley is the inaugural winner. He was chosen because of his five years as volunteer tournament director for the Brokers International, Ltd. Iowa Open at the LPN. He has served on the Iowa Golf Association board of directors since 2003, where he was president for two years. He has been active in course rating in Iowa since 2002. A special awards luncheon will be Oct. 21 at Riverside Casino and Golf Resort to honor Oxley and the other Iowa Section PGA 2014 award winners. More details here
