The EuroPro Tour has announced it’s 16-tournament schedule for 2017, with seven new venues complementing the stellar line-up.
For the first time in its 15-year history, the EuroPro Tour will play the same course as the European Tour during the same season, with the Colt Course at Close House hosting the EuroPro season opener (April 26-28) before staging the British Masters in the autumn.
In May, the EuroPro Tour will make a welcome return to Ireland, where Ballykisteen Golf Club (May 10-12) will play host.
The following week the tour heads to Frilford Heath Golf Club in Oxford (May 17-19), where those who gained their tour card through Q School in April will return to the scene of their success.
In June, the tour makes its annual trip to Scotland’s east coast, where the historic Montrose Golf Links (June 13-15) will once again welcome Europe’s leading young professionals.
Studely Wood Golf Club is the venue for event five of the season (June 21-23) before the tour is back at Cumberwell Park Golf Club (June 28-30), which has established itself as a favourite among players.
