SPRINGFIELD, Illinois – April 5, 2018 – Lincoln Land Championship officials announced a new partnership with local business, Landmark Cadillac, to serve as Official Vehicle of the local tourney. As part of the agreement the shared VIP Hospitality area on the tournament’s finishing hole will be renamed the Landmark Cadillac Club and new packages for this area are available in 2018, including the ability to buy single passes by the day. “This is one of the best ways to enjoy the tournament, said Executive Director Kate Peters, “the Landmark Cadillac Club includes magnificent views of the 18th green, shaded seating with food and beverages included.”
“Our partnership with Landmark Cadillac will include elements meant to grow attendance and participation in the tournament,” said Peters. “In addition to sponsoring the shared hospitality area on #18, those who test drive at Landmark Cadillac will receive complimentary tickets to the tournament. Another great addition is that participants in the LRS Pro-Am will have a chance to win a new Cadillac, valued at $50,000, with a hole-in-one on the 17th hole and spectators can participate in a putting contest throughout the four official rounds culminating in 3 participants attempting to win a $25,000 cash prize. And, for the first time in tournament history, Landmark Cadillac will give two lucky fans a chance to take a shot at a $1,000,000 hole-in-one. We are thrilled to expand our partnership with our friends at Landmark Automotive Group.”
In two short years, the Lincoln Land Championship presented by LRS has become a staple on the annual Springfield sports calendar, joining the John Deere Classic (Silvis) and the Rust-Oleum Championship (Ivanhoe) as the only PGA TOUR-sanctioned events contested annually in the state of Illinois. “Landmark Automotive Group has been both a longterm supporter of professional golf and local Springfield charities,” said Sean Grant, President and CEO for Landmark Automotive Group. “We are very vested in the community and view our expanded partnership as a win-win. Support for the tournament is growing and we want to be a visible part of its long-term success.”
The 2018 tournament is scheduled for June 26 – July 1, 2018, with official rounds scheduled for June 28 – July 1.
