Apparently one Web.com stop in Illinois wasn’t enough for 2016, and then there was two, within a six week period in the summer ahead.
Panther Creek Country Club in Springfield will be the host of the Land of Lincoln Charity Championship, it will be played from July 11-17. This is the first year of a five-year deal, and the purse is $550,000.
Panther Creek was designed by former U.S. Open Champion Hale Irwin, and was the previous home of the LPGA’s State Farm Classic from 2007 through 2011.
There is no answer yet to if the dates will stay the same in 2017, when the John Deere Classic likely returns to the same week. (In 2016 the John Deere Classic will be played during the Olympic games in August).
“Our membership is ecstatic to host the inaugural Land of Lincoln Charity Championship,” said Panther Creek Country Club Board President Leo Zappa. “We are confident that the Web.com Tour will find our course to be a phenomenal venue for the players, and one that will escalate this event into the upper echelon of the tour’s annual stops.”
The Birmingham-base Bruno Event Team will manage the championship.
The launch for sales and sponsorship is already underway, there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved in these area’s.
The Web.com gives it’s players a chance to earn one of the 50 PGA Tour Cards that are up for grabs. 25 cards are earned by the top money winners for the season, with the other 25 earned in the season ending four-event Web.com Tour finals.
