PGA Tour Series-China has announced it will hold two qualifying tournaments in Guangzhou and Haikou, China, as well as two others in Lagoi, Indonesia and Phuket, Thailand.

The qualifiers will begin in January 7-10, with Foison Golf Club in Guangzhou hosting the Mainland China Qualifying Tournament. The other sites are Mission Hills Golf Club’s Lava Fields Course in Haikou on Feburary 25-28, with Thailand’s Laguna Golf Phuket again a host site on March 3-6, along with Laguna Bintan Resort in Lagoi on January 14-17, Indonesia – the first PGA Tour Series-China event held in that country. The final three tournaments are open to players from outside mainland China.

PGA Tour Series-China executive director Greg Carlson said: “It’s always exciting to begin thinking about a new season, and going to Indonesia for the first time begins a new chapter in our history. It’s at the qualifiers where many players are beginning their professional journeys, and we recognize the talent that has come through our Tour during these past five seasons.

“The fact we play this Tour in China accentuates the importance of the mainland China qualifying tournament. We will continue to identify the best, up-and-coming players from China, and many will come through our qualifying tournament as we remain committed to growing the game in China.”

PGA Tour Series-China is a China-based men’s professional golf tour as part of the PGA Tour’s global expansion. The tour started in 2014. After a hiatus in 2017, the tour resumed in 2018.
