It is a privilege to confirm that for the third consecutive year La Cala will host the Alps Golf Tour 1st Stage and Final Stage of its Qualifying School.
The 1st Stage of qualifying will take place on December 11th & 12th and will be played on all of our three courses. The Final Stage will take place on December 15th, 16th & 17th. In total we anticipate that the event will bring approximately 250 + players from about 19 different countries.
Stage 1, will see approximately 190 players compete in the qualifying rounds in order to earn the right to compete in the final stages, the qualifiers from this event will then join with those that have prequalified from earlier qualifying events and when the last putt drops and all rounds have been completed, the top sixty-five golfers will earn their playing privileges for the 2015 Alps Tour Season.
As usual, there will be a local flavour to the event and a little bit of magic possible also, with Javier Ballesteros the son of the legendary Severiano Ballesteros competing. Javier will be making his pro debut and if he has half the charisma and character as his dad, then he will surely be one of the sixty-five players to leave La Cala with a smile and with an early Christmas present. Other locals in the field include Patrick Simard, who after having a great college career at Ohio State is hoping to make the break through and prove his skills as a Professional.
