2021 Alps Tour Qualifying School, First and Final Stages return to Italy
September 6th, 2021 – New venues and old venues, too. After last year’s edition and thanks to the precious support of the Italian Golf Federation in the year when the tour celebrates its 20th anniversary, and the hospitality granted by all the venues involved, the Alps Tour Qualifying School will be hosted again in Italy, in November.
The tournament that decides who is going to have access to our Tour in the 2022 Season and become the next rising golf stars will take place on three different courses in three different areas of the country for the First Stage, and has been confirmed near Rome, on two adjacent courses, for the Final Stage. With the Qualifying School, the Alps Tour confirms its goal of “Raising Golf Stars” – the tagline created with the new logo for the 20 years of life of the tour – and opens the door to the future stellar careers of its most talented members.
The First Stage is scheduled on November 4th and 5th over 36 holes on three courses and a maximum of 78 players per course: Golf Club Le Fonti, 36 km from Bologna airport; Miglianico Golf & Country Club, the traditional venue for seven edition of the Abruzzo Open, 250 km from Rome Fiumicino airport and 18 km from Pescara airport; and Acaya Golf Club, venue for the 2021 Alps Tour Spring Series, 68 km from Brindisi airport and 16 km from Lecce, one of the most beautiful cities in the South of Italy.
The Alps Tour Qualifying School is open to male professionals belonging to a PGA or a recognised golf federation, and male amateurs with max hcp of 2,0. When applying for the tournament, the player must choose the venue (Le Fonti, or Miglianico, or Acaya) where he would like to play. The entry fee is 700 € and includes both First and Final stages and the yardage books.
The Final Stage – with a total of 144 admitted players – will then take place on November 10th – 12thover 54 holes on two venues North of Rome, like last year, with two rounds alternated on Terre dei Consoli Golf Club, a Robert Trent Jones jr design, and on Golf Nazionale, a Jim and George Fazio Design, with the last round on Golf Nazionale, the challenging and beautiful golf course owned by the Italian Golf Federation inaugurated with the World Cup back in 1991, and recently renovated.
The Final Stage is open to the players who qualified after the First Stage and to the exempt players – as the Alps Tour members ranked in the 2021 Order of Merit but not admitted to the Grand Final, or players who took part in the 2021 European Boys/Men Team Championships.
The Top 35 ranked players at the end of the Final Stage will obtain a full category (cat. 6) to play the 2022 Alps Tour events.
The entry deadline for both stages is October 13th.
