European Tour Qualifying School

More about the European Tour Qualifying School

The PGA European Tour operates the three leading men's professional golf tours in Europe: the European Tour, the European Senior Tour and the Challenge Tour.

The Qualifying School has been providing players from all over the world with a platform to make it to the European Tour since its inception in 1976.

Three stages. 252 holes. 25 cards. European Tour Qualifying School is arguably the toughest test in golf. Held between September and November each year, only the top 25 players – and ties – at the end of the six-round Final Stage will make the grade and earn European Tour cards for the following season. Competitors from around the world travel to venues in Austria, England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden in a bid to make it on to Europe's top tier.
