Panorama West Golf Course and Clubhouse Gift

Panorama West is the beneficiary of a generous gift from Jim and Joyce McLuen, who died in 2016. Twenty percent of their estate was directed to Friends of Lake Panorama for the “upkeep, beautification or expansion” of the Panorama West. 

The Friends board is seeking ideas on how to use the gift of $473,700.64. A meeting to gather input will be Monday, September 11, at 6 p.m. in the Panorama West community room. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and those who want to speak will be asked to sign-in. Ideas also can be sent to staff@friendsoflakepanorama.org.

A task force of representatives from the Friends board of directors and the Lake Panorama National board of managers will review all input, and make recommendations to the Lake Panorama Association board of directors.

Eagles Club Outing September 20

The 12th annual Eagles Club outing will be Wednesday, September 20 with a 12 p.m. shotgun start. Check in at Spikes beginning at 11:30 a.m. Participants must already be a member of the Eagles Club to play in this event. To be a club member, you must have made an eagle (gross or net) in an LPN sanctioned event, or in the presence of another Eagle Club member, and have paid the one-time dues of $20.

New club members receive a cap with the LPN Eagle Club logo, plus automatic entry into the Eagles Club outing the first year. After that, a $5 entry fee is required. The format for the outing is Modified Stableford. Players can choose the white or red tee boxes and handicaps will be based on which tee each player chooses. Sign up by calling the pro shop at 641-755-2024. A list of current Eagle Club members, plus past champions, is available here.


Talk Like a Pirate Open September 24

The 12th annual Pirate Open will be Sunday, September 24, with an 11 a.m. cannon ball start. This four-person best-shot tournament will feature cups on the greens of two, four and eight inches. Entry fees are $120 per team for LPN members, and $240 per team for non-LPN members. If your team has a mix of members and non-members, check with the pro shop for pricing. The entry fees cover golf, cart, flag events, contests, prizes and much more. If you're new to this tournament, you should know many participants take the "pirate" theme seriously, decorating their carts and dressing in some form of pirate garb. This part of the tournament is not required, but adds to the fun, so join in! Entry form and a list of past winners here.
