MENA Tour Q School at El Jadida, Morocco
from March 7 to 9
DUBAI With just a few days to go, entries are fast picking up pace for the MENA (Middle East North Africa) Golf Tour Qualifying School to be held at El Jadida Royal Golf Club in Morocco from March 7 to 9.

Open to all professionals and amateurs — with a handicap of one or better (four or better for the MENA nationals) — the 54-hole Q-School will be held in two stages. The first stage, on March 7-8, will see players compete over 36 holes of stroke play when the half-way cut will be made, narrowing down the field to 70 players for the final stage 18-hole competition to be played the following day.

A minimum of 50 players from the final qualifying round will be eligible for Category-7 membership of the MENA Golf Tour for the 2017 season which will have close to 16 events, covering destinations in Morocco, Kuwait, Thailand, South Africa, Oman and the UAE.

The Q-School, which will be held in El Jadida for the first time, will offer MENA Golf Tour members the opportunity to earn full playing privileges on the tour in addition to becoming eligible for Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) points.

The top five players from the Q-School will share a prize fund of $ 6,000 with the winner walking away with a cheque for $2,250.

“We look forward to welcoming players from different nationalities in the field and hope to see what I believe will be an absorbing contest for securing tour cards.”
Interested golfers may visit for more information on the Q-School. Entries close on Sunday, Mar 5, 2017.
