Local high schooler to join in upcoming Championship.
SAVANNAH, GA – On Monday, March 1, 2021, Club Car announced a title sponsor’s exemption to Reed Lotter for the 2021 Club Car Championship at The Landings Club.
Vice President of Americas Sales for Club Car Mark Rickell shared this exciting news with Reed and his father, Chris Lotter, yesterday via a video conference call. Reed, a member of The Landings Club, is 16 years old and currently attending Savannah Country Day School. Reed is currently the 33rd overall top male player in Georgia and ranked 77th in the overall American Junior Golf Association Rolex Rankings.
When notified of the exemption, Reed expressed his delight to play at this elite level and to represent the city of Savannah. His father, Chris Lotter, stated, “We are very excited and honored for Reed to have this opportunity to play in this awesome event at The Landings Club. I am excited for the tournament to obtain Club Car as a sponsor and believe Reed will represent The Landings Club, Club Car, and Savannah Country Day School well.”
This will be Reed’s first appearance in a PGA TOUR sanctioned event; however, Reed is not a stranger to Deer Creek Course, as he shot the course record of 63 when he was 14 years old. This record was broken last year in the 2020 Club Car Championship by Julien Etulain who shot a 62 in the second round.
Scott Justman, Director of Golf Operations at The Landings Club, said, “Club Car’s decision to sponsor the Club Car Championship at The Landings Club was influenced by commitment to, and quality of, golf at The Landings Club. It is very exciting that they chose to utilize this limited sponsorship for a member of our Club.”
As this tournament is owned and operated by the PGA TOUR, local exemptions have been given back to the field in the past, prior to the title sponsorship with Club Car. The local exemptions awarded were through Web.com and Korn Ferry through their umbrella sponsorship of the Tour overall. Reed’s exemption would not be possible and could not come to fruition without Club Car as a title sponsor. This opportunity is historic for The Landings Club and its membership, as Reed will be the first junior player from our Club to play in this professional event.
The 2021 Club Car Championship will take place March 22–28 at the Deer Creek Course with the first round beginning on Thursday, March 25, and final round—with Seersucker Blazer “crowning”—on Sunday, March 27.
Military Appreciation Day will be Saturday, March 28, during which fans can view a variety of military equipment, see the military guest announcer, and the guarding of the American flag on #18. The day will conclude with a Military Appreciation Ceremony and Flyover on the practice range. Throughout the
weekend, families will also be able to enjoy the Family Fun Zone by Morris & Templeton Insurance. The zone includes an obstacle course from Habersham YMCA, inflatable golf targets, crafts, face painting, and more.
