Panorama West Updates
With the 2019 golf season winding down, clubhouse hours at Panorama West have been reduced. The clubhouse will continue to be open weekends, with hours dictated by play and weather. Open hours during the week will be sporadic.
The greens at Panorama West will be aerated tomorrow, September 9. Looking ahead, the Panorama Invitational Cross Country meet will be Thursday, September 19. This will mean increased road traffic in the area, and the golf course will close at 3 p.m. The Panora Fire Department Glow Ball tournament is Saturday, October 5. Rental carts for Panorama West will be removed after that event.
The Tuesday Night Men’s League, under the leadership of Bill Eby and Jay Merryman, donated an air compressor to the Panorama West pro shop for use by members and customers in need. A huge thank you to this group for their continued support!
Annual Eagles Club Outing Wednesday
The 14th annual Eagles Club outing is this Wednesday, with a shotgun start at noon. Check in at Spikes begins at 11:30 a.m. To be an Eagle 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 entry into the Eagles Club outing their first year. After that, there is a $5 entry fee. The format is Modified Stableford, with players choosing their tee box and handicaps based on that choice. Call the pro shop at 641-755-2024 to enter.

14th Annual Pirate Open September 22
The 14th annual Pirate Open will be Sunday, September 22, with an 11 a.m. cannon ball start. This four-person best-shot tournament features cups on the greens of two, four and eight inches. Entry fees are $140 per team for LPN members, and $260 per team for non-LPN members. Call the pro shop at 641-755-2024 for pricing if your team has a mix of members and non-members. Entry fees cover golf, cart, flag events, contests, prizes and more. Many participants take the "pirate" theme seriously, decorating their carts and dressing in pirate garb. This part is not required, but adds to the fun!
