The LET Access Series (LETAS) has announced a schedule of at least 14 events across six European countries in 2024, with seven cards available for the 2025 Ladies European Tour season through the season-long order of merit.
Europe will play host to all the tournaments across the season, which will take place between April and October.
Sweden will host four tournaments in 2024, while France is set to hold three tournaments and England has two events. There will also be visits to the Czech Republic and Denmark during the year.
The season is due to get underway at Golf de Terre Blanche, back for its 12th edition, before rounding out at the Calatayud Ladies Open at Gambito Golf Calatayud.
At the end of the season, seven players on the LETAS Order of Merit will earn LET membership for 2025, while players finishing in eighth to 32nd positions will be exempt into the final stage of LET Q-School – an increase of 10 spots.
The number of LET cards rewarded has increased from previous years and reflects the strength and depth of players on LETAS.
So far, three events have announced elevated purses for 2024, including the Terre Blanche Ladies Open, the Santander Golf Tour, and the Lavaux Ladies Open.
A new event hosted at The Club at Mill Green, the Get Golfing Women’s Golf Open, is offering one of the largest individual prize funds in the tour’s history – €80,000.
With a few tournaments still waiting to confirm their prize funds, including the Rose Ladies Open, the tour’s current total prize money stands at €600,000.
Last season, Denmark’s Sofie Kibsgaard Nielsen was crowned LETAS Order of Merit winner and Rookie of the Year after winning three times in her maiden season as a professional.
Five other players clinched LET cards for 2024, including Swiss players Elena Moosmann and Chiara Tamburlini, and three English players – Emily Price, Hannah Screen and Gemma Clews.
Alexandra Armas, LET CEO, said: “We are extremely proud to be able to announce the schedule for the 2024 LET Access Series. It looks set to be a fantastic year and it also shows the commitment there is to provide greater competitive opportunities to players which in turn gives them the potential to progress to the Ladies European Tour.
“The LET is dedicated to supporting our members and growing the game of golf to new and existing markets, and we are excited to confirm the release of this schedule in what will be another great year.”
Ana Larraneta, LETAS tour director, added: “To be able to continue to provide a full schedule with increasing prize funds year on year is amazing for LETAS members. I would like to thank the federations, our sponsors and partners who are committed to growing the women’s game, for their continued support and we’re excited for the year ahead.”
