Buy Your Pool Membership Now
Work is underway to get the LPN pool cleaned, filled and ready to open soon. If everything goes as planned, it will open May 1, and be open until the end of September. Guests of Clover Ridge and Lake Panorama Inn and Suites have access to the pool at no charge. All others must have an annual membership or pay the daily fee. Anyone using the pool must check-in at the window in the southeast corner of the pro shop. Those purchasing an annual membership will receive permanent wristbands. Those paying the daily fee will receive a paper wristband for that day. Annual memberships for LPA members are $75 for a single and $130 for a family. Non-LPA members can get an annual membership for $85 for a single and $145 for a family. The daily fee is $3. Those who join online will have their permanent wristbands waiting for them at the check-in window the first time they visit the pool.
Pro Shop Hours Expanding
As the weather continues to improve, the LPN pro shop hours of operation continue to expand. So does the amount of new merchandise that is arriving daily. Stop in between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. weekdays and 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekends to check out the wide variety of golf clothing, equipment and accessories offered.
