Changes coming to Lincoln Land Charity Championship

Flipping 9's to help seating, improve spectator hospitality

SPRINGFIELD (WCIA) -- The Lincoln Land Charity Championship will have several noticeable changes in its second year.  The biggest difference from year one is flipping the 9-hole format, in hopes of helping the fan experience and to provide more hospitality seating on the 18th hole.  As a result, the traditional first hole at Panther Creek Country Club will now be the 10th, the 9th will now play as the finishing hole.

"Every year you want to get better, so we are doing some fine tuning on some spectator enhancements," Lincoln Land Charity Championship Executive Director Kate Peters said.  "A little bit of fine tuning on the golf course, flipping the 9's to allow for some additional hospitality on 18.  There's a lot of really fun stuff, we have a great junior clinic sponsor on Tuesday and lots of little things that we are doing throughout tournament week."

The first round of the Lincoln Land Charity Championship tees off Thursday morning.  The four-day tournament runs through Sunday.
