Montrose is only Scottish venue on 2017 EuroPro Tour schedule

The PGA EuroPro Tour has announced its 16-tournament schedule for 2017, with seven new venues on the stellar line-up. Each event will have a £50,000 prize fund.
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, near Newcastle  hosting the EuroPro season opener (April 26-28) before staging the British Masters in the autumn.
In May, the PGA 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.
It will be the only port-of-call North of the Border

The season concludes with the Tour’s top 60 players contesting the Tour Championship. Players qualify to play on the PGA EuroPro Tour either through a two-stage Qualifying School in the spring, or thanks to their 2015 achievements.
