LPN Weekly - 9/17/2017

As Fall Approaches, Hours Change

Pro shop hours at Lake Panorama National now are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Spikes will continue to be open as tee times warrant. Even when Spikes is closed, the pro shop staff will have the bathrooms there unlocked during pro shop hours. With cooler temperatures, great course conditions and less traffic, fall is the perfect time for a round of golf at Lake Panorama National. Book tee times by calling 641-755-2024.

Pro shop hours at Panorama West now are Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Hours during the week are intermittent. Play is always possible during daylight hours, and if the pro shop isn't open, those who need to pay green fees can do so at the kiosk located near the first tee. If you have Panorama West questions, call 641-755-2250.

Eagles Club Outing this Wednesday

The 12th annual Eagles Club outing will be this Wednesday 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 next Sunday, September 24, with an 11 a.m. cannon ball start. This four-person best-shot tournament features cups on the greens that are 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 on pricing. The entry fees cover golf, cart, flag events, contests, prizes and 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. Costumes are not required, but feel free to join in! Entry form and a list of past winners here.

Aerification Schedule

Panorama West completed aerification last Monday. Aerification of the LPN greens will be done Monday, September 25. To make this process as efficient as possible, the course will be closed most of the day. Weather permitting, the course will be back open by 4 p.m. Call the pro shop at 641-755-2024 for updates.
