LPN Golf Membership Extras

2016 LPN golf membership forms and payments are coming in nicely, but there's always room for more. Remember, members earn two free rounds of golf when they pay their 2016 dues. In the past, certificates for these rounds were printed for pickup in the pro shop. This year, a simpler method of tracking these free rounds will be used. A membership list will be kept at the LPN pro shop front desk. Whenever you’re ready to redeem one or both of your free rounds, just tell the staff, the round will be free, and a note will be made beside your name on the list.

Do you know someone who might be interested in an LPN membership? If so, let them know the benefits, and provide details on how to join. For every new member you recruit in 2016, you receive a $50 LPN Pro Shop merchandise credit. Just tell the person you recruit to list you as a referral on the new membership form. Details on membership options are available here.

First Tournament is April 24

The first organized golf tournament of the LPN season is always the Bud Light 8" Cup. This year's event will be Sunday, April 24. As the name implies, the cups on the greens will be 8 inches to help players who lost their putting stroke over the winter. 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.

Have You Tried the New Links Menu?

The new Links menu sports a new logo featuring silverware nestled in a golf bag, and includes old favorites, plus lots of new offerings. Chef Peter Makens says many of the items on the new menu are priced lower than the old menu, while offering more options for how they are served. All the sandwiches, wraps and burgers are served a la carte. On the old menu, these came with a side, so were priced higher. Now diners can choose from a longer list of sides in a wider price range.

Appetizer offerings have expanded, with several items Makens tested as weekly features making the regular menu, such as fried Brussels sprouts, coconut shrimp and bacon-wrapped shrimp. Cheese curds, chips and guacamole, loaded tater tots and jumbo buffalo wings also can be found on the 15-item appetizer menu. There are 15 different burger options, all available in two sizes. There also is a list of extras that can be added for a small fee, such as haystack onions, avocado, sautéed mushrooms or a fried egg.

The popular Links pork tenderloin still is available grilled or breaded. But there also are new options, including the sweet pepper loin, the big pig loin, the pig pile loin, and the pigs and apples loin. The menu includes 13 other sandwiches, four wraps, six pasta dishes, nine all-new flatbread pizzas, and several salads offered in two sizes. French onion soup always is available, plus a soup of the day. Steak, seafood, chicken and pork entrees round out the menu.

It's going to take you several visits to try all the new menu offerings, so make plans to visit the Links soon! Current hours are Tuesday through Friday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Breakfast is served on weekends until 11 a.m.
