Qualifying School Contests

Minor League Golf is a proven professional golf training ground that prepares players and provides a path up to status tours.

This year (2017) we ran 6 contests year where the winner received a full paid entry into 2017 Web.com Qualifying School. Last year (2016) we ran 5 Qualifying School Contests.

So far 25 Qualifying School Entries and Ten $1,000 Monday Qualifier Bonuses have been awarded.

ALL WINNERS WILL BE REIMBURSED AFTER THEY PLAY IN THEIR FIRST ROUND. IF YOU ARE NOT GOING THIS YEAR YOU CAN USE THE MONEY TOWARDS NEXT YEARS QUALIFYING SCHOOL.

Rules of Minor League Golf Qualifying School Contests

  • A Player can only win one Qualifying School contest per calendar year
  • Contest will follow MLGT policy for a weather shortened event.
    Please click to read the section on an Official Tournament
  • In the instance that more than 25 players sign up for the $200 contest the balance after the $4,500 - $5,200 Qualifying School spot is paid will go towards the 2nd place finisher's Qualifying School entry
  • If less than 25 players sign up for the Qualifying School Contest the Minor League Golf Tour will pay the difference, so a full Qualifying School entry is paid out
  • If a Player wins the contest and uses $2,700 to compete in Qualifying School pre-qualifying and does not make it through, the balance of the contest money ($2,500) will go towards their Qualifying School entry fee next year



Anybody who is planning on playing Q-school would be crazy to not play in these bonus events. I won the Qualifying School Contest in 2009 and made it to final stage for the first time. I might not have been able to pay for Q-school if it wasn't for the MLGT!
