Q School 2021 FAQs

Do I need to be a professional to enter the tour?

No. All professional golfers as well as amateur golfers with a playing handicap of two or better (as recognised by their respective CONGU or Federation Handicapping Scheme) can enter PGA EuroPro Tour Qualifying School.

It is not a breach of the Rules of Amateur Status, as approved by the R&A Rules Ltd, for an amateur golfer to file an entry for, and play in, any stage of PGA EuroPro Tour Qualifying School provided that, in advance of play, and in writing, he waives his right to any prize money in the competition.

Amateurs who enter Qualifying School and retain their Amateur Status during the event will have the option to either keep their respective category and become a Professional or retain their Amateur Status and forfeit their PGA EuroPro Tour Membership (for which there will be no refund). An amateur who relinquishes their Membership category at this time may regain it retrospectively at any time on the PGA EuroPro Tour schedule at no extra cost.

Do I get a practice round?

Yes. The official practice day is the day before the first round. You can arrange at the host club’s discretion any other practice times before the official practice day. 

What category can I achieve from Q School?

Categories can be found here. If you’re unsure if you need to go to Q School please do get in touch with us. 

 Do I have to pay for a membership to do qualifying school?

Players who are fully exempt from Qualifying School (Categories 1, 2, 7, 9, 11) may join the Tour at any time by paying their membership fees at the time of entering their first main tournament.

Exempt Member fee: £250

Non-Exempt Member fee: £445 (This includes entry into all stages of Qualifying School)

Do I have to enter the Final Stage when I enter the First Stage?

No. If you get through the first stage the PGA will automatically enter you to the final stage.  

When do entries close?

Wednesday 16th September 2020 at 15:00. 

How much will it cost me to play on the PGA EuroPro Tour?

Annual membership of the PGA EuroPro Tour costs £250 and is subject to an additional £7.50 administration fee. Entry to each event is £295 and is subject to a £1.95 admin charge. Entry to Qualifying School costs £195 and is subject to the same administration charges as a main-season event.

How many qualifying spots are available at each venue?

When Q School entries close, the number of remaining spots gets distributed between the five venues according to the field size. A provisional number is given before Q School and then the actual number is confirmed once everyone has teed off in the first round.
