The first stage of PGA EuroPro Tour Qualifying School due to be held at De Vere Slaley Hall has been switched to De Vere Oulton Hall due to heavy snow covering the course at Slaley Hall.
The first stage Qualifying School events at Stoke By Nayland and Players Club are unaffected.
Heavy snow across the country has been particularly badly felt in the north east, with up to six inches of snow remaining on the ground at Slaley Hall. The weather forecast for the area does not indicate an improvement in temperatures and in view of this, the bank holiday weekend and the state of the course, the decision has been made to move first stage Qualifying School due to take place at Slaley Hall to De Vereâ€™s Outlon Hall near Leeds.
The decision has been made at this time to allow players to make any necessary arrangements for travel and accommodation.
The 36-hole qualifying event will remain on Wednesday, April 3 and Thursday, April 4, with practice taking place on Tuesday, April 2.
