A September 2001 trip
to Panora by DianeA
Quote: We (my husband and I) went to Panora, Iowa to Clover Ridge Resort (a National Golf course, very nice) by Lake Panorama (beautiful). Beautiful area 45 miles from Des Moines. Panora is a quaint small town.
Being we were staying at one of the top 100 golf courses, Jim and a friend, Don, spent some quality time on the course. The 5th hole was right out our back door. I and friend Donna went and hit a bucket of balls. It is a beautiful, long course that runs in places by the lake. It is a fairly good sized lake. There is also a short 9 hole course.
Donna and I took in some of the shopping and lunch in nearby Des Moines. We also went to a small town for tea. Quaint victorian tea shoppe.
We watched the movie "The Bridges of Madison County" and then we going to go and see a couple (we ran out of time), but they are nearby and the movie is wonderful!
Clover Ridge Resort Condominiums through RCI are wonderful. We stayed in a large 3 bedroom unit. Fireplace, large kitchen and nice patio. It felt like home. We settled right in.
