LPN Solheim Deadline July 5
In recognition of the 20th anniversary of the LPN Solheim, team captains Kathy Moline and Kim Kent have chosen “Cheers to 20 Years!” as their theme. The 2019 LPN Solheim is open to all women golfers who are members of Lake Panorama National and have an established handicap, with exceptions made for former Solheim captains. The kickoff will be August 22, after women’s league play, with a shootout August 23, and team competition August 24.
For the Friday shootout, “betting tables” open at 5:30 p.m. with the competition at 6 p.m. Team pairings will be based on handicaps, with all teams advancing past the first hole. On Saturday, tee times will begin at 11 a.m. Team pictures will be taken on the 18th green after the competition, with dinner, awards and the announcement of the 2020 Solheim captains to follow.
Registrations are due by July 5. Entry fees are $85 for all events, which includes a shirt, Friday night shootout with dinner for two, Saturday Solheim team competition with dinner for two, and awards. For those not participating in the Friday shootout, the fee is $65.
Rally for Tori’s Angels July 18
For the second year, the LPN women’s league is sponsoring a nine-hole, four-gal best shot event to raise money for Tori’s Angels. This fun evening will be Thursday, July 18, with check-in at 5 p.m. and a 5:30 p.m. shotgun start. Golf will be followed by a pizza party, door prizes, silent auction, and a visit from some of the people directly involved in Tori’s Angels. The foundation provides financial support to Iowa children with life-threatening medical challenges.
The entry fee is $40 for LPN members, and $50 for non-members, which covers a T-shirt, golf and dinner. Those who already have a Tori’s Angels T-shirt to wear that night can mark “no shirt needed” on their form, and $15 of their entry fee will go directly to Tori’s Angels.
This event raised more than $3,300 last year, and organizers hope to match that this year. So besides recruiting participants for the event, they also are asking for donations of gift baskets or other items for the silent auction. Entry forms are available in both the Panorama West and LPN pro shops, and online. For more details, contact Becky Rolfes at 515-681-9111 or email@example.com.
