Written History of LPA Planned

By Susan Thompson 

The 50th anniversary of the Lake Panorama Association will be August 14, 2018. At its April meeting, the LPA Board of Directors discussed ways to help celebrate this important milestone. It was agreed some sort of an event will be coordinated with Panorama Days, normally held the first weekend in August.

Friends of Lake Panorama’s first annual “The Beach Ball” rolled out a bouncing “Fun-Raiser” with proceeds to help build a new playground at Sunset Beach. Guests flocked to the beach-themed party May 6 at Lake Panorama National Conference Center. Inside the weather was perfect and guests arrived decked out in sunglasses, shorts and skirts, with many enticed by the rays to purchase tickets through eight fun-raising options.

The swimming pool and spa on the south side of the Lake Panorama National conference center is open for the season, and expected to remain open until the end of September. Pool hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Private pool parties can be scheduled in two-hour increments at a cost of $150. 
The pool is a cooperative effort between the Clover Ridge Interval Owners Association and the Lake Panorama Association, with operations handled by Lake Panorama National. 

Panorama West Golf Course and Clubhouse Updates

The Panorama West clubhouse was built in 1997. Besides the pro shop, it houses a full kitchen and community room.

A lot has changed at the Panorama West Golf Course since it first opened in 1971. What began as a nine-hole par-3 course now offers the option of playing five of the holes as a par-4. The present clubhouse was completed in 1997 in the middle of the nine-hole layout, which led to the course being rearranged.

The Lake Panorama Association owns the facility, and managed it until 2013, when the operation was placed under the Lake Panorama National umbrella. Again this season, several updates and improvements are underway.
