Panorama West Irrigation Project to Begin

Thanks to the James and Joyce McLuen estate, who gifted 20 percent of their estate to Friends of Lake Panorama for the “upkeep, beautification or expansion” of the Panorama West golf course, substantial improvements are underway at Panorama West. Landscapes Unlimited has been awarded the bid of replacing the original irrigation system at this facility. Material delivery and preliminary work will start May 22, with the project being fully underway Tuesday, May 29. Completion is expected by the end of July. During construction, all golfers will need to check in, or call the pro shop to learn about daily hole closures. For more information, call the pro shop at 641-755-2250.
