Suzhou, Qinhuangdao added to 2018 schedule

PGA TOUR Series-China has confirmed that the 10th and 11th events of the 2018 season will be held at the Jinji Lake International Golf Club (pictured) in Suzhou, west of Shanghai, from August 30-September 2 and the Qinhuangdao Poly Golf Club in Hebei province from September 6-9.

The Suzhou Championship will be the first professional tournament to be held at Jinji Lake since the 2010 China Open, while the Qinhuangdao Championship will be the first ever-professional golf tournament hosted by Qinhuangdao Poly Golf Club.

This week’s Yantai Championship at the Ian Woosnam-designed Yantai Nanshan Mashanzai Golf Club in Shandong province is the season’s seventh event and kicks off a three-week stretch in July.

The Tour will remain in Shandong province for the Qingdao Championship at Tiger Beach Golf Links (July 19-22) before heading to the capital for the Beijing Championship at the Topwin Golf and Country Club, which hosted Tour events in both 2015 and 2016 and was a seven-time host of the Volvo China Open.

Every tournament on this year’s PGA TOUR Series-China offers RMB 1.5 million, a 25-percent increase over purse levels from 2016. 

The PGA TOUR established PGA TOUR Series-China in 2014 as its third international developmental tour, following in the footsteps of PGA TOUR Latinoamerica and the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada. Since its inception, PGA TOUR Series-China players have received Official World Golf Ranking points for top finishes at official tournaments.
