League play is a big part of the fun at the Panorama West Golf Course. For the 2019 season, there are two men’s leagues and one women’s league. League members must either purchase an annual Panorama West membership, or pay the $16 daily green fee.
TUESDAY WOMEN’S LEAGUE - Everyone is welcome, from beginners to experienced players. The format is individual play, so no partners are needed. League members tee off any time 7-10:30 a.m., and gather in the clubhouse following their round for snacks and beverages. Prizes are awarded weekly in two flights for special events and low scores. Records kept throughout the season are the basis for annual awards presented at a wrap-up luncheon. A kickoff luncheon will be April 30 at the Lake Panorama National Resort conference center. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. with lunch at 12 p.m. RSVP to Paula Hansen at 712-249-0780, or email@example.com. Cost of the luncheon is $15. Dues are $30 for league play.
League play begins May 7 with a two-gal best shot at 9 a.m., immediately preceded by a golf clinic presented by Gary Babcock, LPN Head Golf Professional. The first day of regular play will be May 14, with August 27 the last day of regular play. A four-gal best-shot and awards luncheon will be September 3.
