Seven more tournaments: Pro Golf Tour continues the season
Pro Golf Tour 2020
Good news from the Pro Golf Tour head office in Diedorf/Germany: seven more tournaments are expected to be held this year. The next step will be the Polish Open 2020 at the Gradi Golf Club in Prusice in Poland, now scheduled for 29 to 31 July.
Starnberg in mid-August
Afterwards, the sportsmen will move on to the first tournament of the 2020 season in Germany: the professionals will compete on the picturesque fairways and well-known fast greens of GC Starnberg near Munich in Bavaria from 17 to 19 August. In 2019, the Finn Sami Välimäki won his second trophy of the season here, thus laying the foundation for his later direct promotion to the European Challenge Tour, which he perfected just one week later in the Czech Republic with his third victory of the season; Välimäki even managed to qualify for the 2020 European Tour later as part of the European Tour’s Qualifying School, where he was also able to win in the meantime. The Pro Golf Tour players’ journey is also leading to the Czech Republic after the tournament in Starnberg this year: the Huatech Trophy by EXTEC 2020 will be on the tournament calendar there from 28 to 30 August.
Other events in the 2020 season are the Schladming Dachstein Open, which is being held for the first time and will be played from 2 to 4 September at the Austrian Schladming Dachstein Golf Club, the Haugschlag NÖ Open by perfect eagle in Lower Austria's Waldviertel region, which is scheduled for 8 to 10 September, and the grand season finale, the Castanea Resort Championship 2020 at the Castanea Resort in Adendorf in Germany.
Finally, the Pro Golf Tour Qualifying School for the 2021 season is scheduled from 13 to 16 October, at GC Paderborner Land in Salzkotten as in previous years.
Three promotion spots to the European Challenge Tour
What the Pro Golf Tour has also announced as part of the new schedule: at the end of the 2020 season, there will be three promotion spots for the best players on the Pro Golf Tour to join the 2021 Challenge Tour.
