Couples Murder Mystery Rescheduled

Thanks to all who had signed up for the first Friday Couples of the season. Unfortunately, rain canceled the planned Murder Mystery event. Never fear, you'll have another chance to solve that murder at the July 24 Friday couples.

But first, the June 12 Friday Couples will have a 1970s theme. This will be a four-person best shot played '70s style. Sign up in the pro shop to play with another couple, or to be matched up another couple. Check in at Spikes for a 5:30 p.m. start. Cost is $10 per couple. Start looking now for your bell bottoms!

June Brings Junior Golf League and School to LPN

The LPN junior league kicks off June 1 and runs each Monday for 11 weeks through August 10. There is no cost for this league, which begins at 5 p.m. each week. Boys must be able to walk 9 holes, carry their clubs and be able to keep score. For girls, the number of holes played will depend on time and skill level. Contact Gary Babcock or Zach Hammerberg in the LPN pro shop at 641-755-2024.

The 17th annual Junior Golf School will be four Wednesdays in June, beginning June 3 and continuing through June 24.

The final session June 24 will be at the Panorama West golf course and be a golf tournament and pizza party from 10 a.m. to noon. The school is sponsored by the Guthrie County State Bank and the Lake Panorama Association. Entry deadline is May 29. The entry form is available here.
