MOOR ALLERTON GOLF CLUB, Leeds is to once again stage the 72-hole PGA EuroPro Tour Clipper Logistics Players Championship. Our 2016 event will see the players competing between 21st and 24th September in the final event to secure a place in the Order of Merit top 60 and an invite to October’s season-ending Tour Championship.
Last years event was a huge success. It saw an increased prize fund of £60,000 as well as the EuroPro Tours first 4-day championship. Welshman Mark Laskey won the event in 2015 after carding a final round 68, with only a single dropped shot.

James Whitaker, Head Professional at Moor Allerton Golf Club said: “We are thrilled to have the PGA Euro Pro Tour back to Moor Allerton for the fourth successive year. Last years tournament was incredibly well supported throughout and we saw a host of spectators over the four days, as well as some fantastic golf. I’m sure this years event will be bigger and better with the plans and work already in progress. It will also have extra excitement this year with it being the final event before the season ending Tour Championship”.
The HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour 2016 schedule sees them build on its status as the leading satellite to the European Tour.
Daniel Godding, Director of Operations for the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour, said: “2015 was without a doubt our best season ever. We increased prize money, staged our first 72-hole event, saw more players compete than ever before and had the level of the tour recognised by the Official World Golf Ranking and our tournaments now carry World Ranking points. The HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour is all about development and the success of our members in 2015 speaks for how strong the tour now is. As well as our top five progressing to the Challenge Tour we saw members gain European and Challenge Tour cards through European Tour Q School last season and we are all excited to see who will make that jump this year.”
