EuroPro Tour heading to Linden

The PGA EuroPro Tour has announced its tournament schedule for 2019 with five new venues bolstering the line up – including Northumberland’s Linden Hall.

The tour, which offers the UK’s most talented young professionals a route to the Challenge Tour along with more than £850,000 in total prize money in 2019, will head to the Northumberland course July 3-5.

The 6846-yard Jonathan Gaunt design will also host the first stage of the tour’s Qualifying School April 3-4 alongside five other venues around the UK.

The Linden Hall event in July is also set to be part of the tour’s new Macdonald Series, which will take place at four Macdonald Hotels venues. The leading player in the mini series will win a seven-night stay for up to four people at a Macdonald Resort in Spain.

The EuroPro Tour offers direct access to the Challenge Tour through the final order of merit.

The top five golfers at the end of the season will be awarded a category on the 2020 Challenge Tour.

The season concludes with the Tour’s top 60 players competing for the Tour Championship. Players qualify to play on the PGA EuroPro Tour through the two-stage Qualifying School in the spring or thanks to their 2018 achievements.
