Do I need to be a professional? 

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 GolfCatcher PGA EuroPro Tour Qualifying School.

It’s 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.
