LPN Weekly - 4/19/15

Swimming Pool Memberships Available

Good progress continues on the swimming pool and spa on the south side of the LPN conference center, with the facility expected to be open at least by Memorial Day weekend. The pool will be available at no cost to people who own weeks in the Clover Ridge Interval Owners Association, or have traded weeks to stay at the resort. People staying in the LPN Inn and Suites also will have free access to the pool.

All other pool users must purchase an annual membership or pay a daily fee. For LPA members, a 2015 pool membership for a single is $75 and for a family is $130. For the general public, a single membership is $85 and a family membership is $145. The daily rate is $3 per person. Pool memberships can be purchased online here. Membership forms also can be printed and mailed or dropped off with payment at the LPN front desk.

Pool hours will be 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Private pool parties can be scheduled in two-hour increments at a cost of $150. The LPN staff will manage the pool and make sure people using it are Clover Ridge or LPN guests, have purchased an annual membership, or paid a daily fee. Once the summer season is in full swing, snacks and drinks will be available for purchase near the pool.

Driving Range Remains Closed

The LPN driving range is closed because of construction to replace the Clover Ridge septic system. Weather permitting, work is expected to resume Monday. Once work is underway again, it will be three weeks before the range can reopen. We apologize for the inconvenience, but this has not been within the LPN's control.

Bud Light 8" Cup Tournament Sunday

The Bud Light 8" Cup is next Sunday, April 26. As the name implies, the cups on the greens will be 8 inches. Entry fees are $120 per team if all members are LPN golf members, and $240 per team if all members are not LPN golf members. If your team has a mixture of LPN members and non-members, see the entry form or call the pro shop for a fee breakdown. Registration begins at 10 a.m., with a shotgun start at 11 a.m. and awards at 4 p.m. Entry fees cover golf with cart, range balls, hors d'oeuvres and prizes. Download the entry form here.

Administrative Professionals Week

This is Administrative Professionals Week, designed to highlight the important role of administrative professionals in the workplace. Wednesday is Administrative Professionals Day. Show appreciation for the administrative professionals in your business by bringing them to lunch at The Links, where specials will be offered throughout the week. On Wednesday, administrative professionals can choose a free dessert.

The Links Closed Saturday

The Links Restaurant and Lounge will be closed all day next Saturday, April 25. A large wedding reception will be held that day, so the entire facility is needed to accommodate that special event, and the kitchen staff will be busy with food preparations.
