LPN Mixed Couples Next Weekend
Slots remain in the annual LPN Mixed Couples tournament next weekend. There will be a shotgun start at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 27, and a 9 a.m. start Sunday, July 28. The format has mixed couples playing as partners. Both partners drive from their respective tees, then each plays a second shot with the other’s ball. After the second shots, the couple chooses the ball with which the hole will be completed. At that point, the two players alternate shots until the ball is holed.
Entry fees are $155 for LPN member couples, and $235 for non-LPN member couples. Fees include two rounds of golf with carts, practice balls, Saturday evening dinner, and prizes. Register by calling the pro shop at (641) 755-2024 and paying by credit card. Or print the form below, complete it, and drop off at the LPN with entry fee.

LPN Partners Club & Reciprocals
No doubt about it, LPN golf members play a lot of their golf at LPN. But when the course isn’t available, or members are ready for some variety, they have other options. For instance, the “Partners Club” includes three other great Iowa golf clubs. Members of the LPN can play Tournament Club of Iowa at Polk City, Legacy Golf Club at Norwalk and Amana Colonies Golf Club at Amana Monday through Thursday for $35 plus tax. LPN members simply call these clubs and make their own tee times. Any accompanying guests must pay the full rate.
In addition, a reciprocal program includes nine other courses. The courses in this program allow LPN members to play at reduced rates, with tee times arranged by the LPN pro shop. Fees cover 18 holes of golf, cart and range balls, with taxes extra. Tee time restrictions apply, and accompanying guests pay full rate. Reciprocal clubs for 2019 include Atlantic Country Club, Bent Tree Golf Club in Council Bluffs, Carroll Country Club, Fort Dodge Country Club, Honey Creek Golf Club in Boone, Indianola Country Club, Lake Creek Golf Course in Storm Lake, Landsmeer Golf Club in Orange City, and Majestic Hills Golf Course in Denison.
