Planning is underway for the 2015 Brokers International Iowa Open to be held at Lake Panorama National Golf Resort Aug. 13-16. The Pro-Am will be Thursday, Aug. 13, and the three-day Iowa Open will begin Friday, Aug. 14.
This is the sixth year Brokers International has been the lead sponsor for this tournament at the LPN. During this time, the tournament has hosted the top professionals and amateurs from Iowa, plus expanded to include top golfers from outside of Iowa. Again this year, there will be a $25,000 purse for the top professional.
The Pro-Am will be open to the first 36 four-person teams. Each team will be paired with a PGA professional at a draw party Aug. 12.
After serving five years as the tournament director, LeRoy Oxley is giving up that position. LeRoy has overseen what is considered the best tournament in Iowa next to the Principal Senior PGA event. The Iowa Open has grown and prospered under his leadership, and we thank him for his service and dedication.
Gary Soreide has been named to succeed LeRoy as the Brokers International Iowa Open tournament director. Gary has been a member of the LPN since 1975, was a prior two-time club champion and the co-founder of LPN’s version of the Ryder Cup.
2015 tournament forms and information will be posted on the website www.iowaopen.com as soon as those become available. Gary can be reached at email@example.com or cell (515) 240-4272. We are seeking volunteers and sponsorships, so feel free to contact Gary with questions.
