The deadline for entries to the Ladies European Tour’s Qualifying School for the 2009 season is fast approaching. Anyone who may need to attend Q School and who has not yet submitted their entry form is being urged to do so well before the deadline of Friday, December 5 at 5pm.
Both stages of Qualifying School for the 2009 season will take place at the popular La Manga Club in Murcia, Spain, over a two-week period from January 5-16, 2009. Many stars of the professional and amateur game have already signed up.
If you retain your card for 2009 season following the Dubai Ladies Masters, all entry fees will be refunded.
Those wishing to apply are urged to hurry as interest in becoming a member of the LET is now so strong that competition to win a place on the tour via the Qualifying School is intense. For example in 2007, there were 168 players competing for one of only 30 full playing cards available.
The Qualifying School will form a key part of the LET policy for determining the starting field for tournaments in 2009. Players finishing in the top 30 of Stage II, Final Qualifying, will be offered membership of the Tour in Category 8a. Players tied for the final qualifying place will be subject to a play-off over holes to be decided to determine Category 8a players for the 2009 season.
The aim of the School is to maximise the opportunity to play for the top 30 card holders. For further information on how to sign up please download the forms from the bottom right side of the Ladies European Tour website.
