The Ladies European Tour Qualifying school is coming up in just a couple of months. Yep, it’s that time of year again. Everyone is starting to make their travel plans.
This year the LET has moved it’s Qualifying School to Marrakech, Morocco after many years at the lovely spanish resort of La Manga. Micro climate weather in the Murcia region of Spain has started to become a bit less predictable than in the past. It has been especially true during the 1st couple of weeks of December, when the LET has traditionally scheduled its Q School. In addition, the LET Q School has a new sponsor, which of course is always great to see.
The new european womens mini-tour , United Ladies Pro Tour, has a tournament scheduled near Malaga/Marbella, Spain 21-23 November. That is the last warmup playing opportunity for pros and aspiring pros before the 1st round of LET Q School. Great deal too (free accommodation, free training facilities). We highly recommend it, just as we did the Murcia Ladies Open (LET Access Series) which was held just before Q school in 2010.
Travel to Marrakech is bound to pose a few problems if you haven’t been there before, so we thought we’d post a few links that might be of help, especially for family, friends, and fans/supporters who may want to be in Morocco to support the golfers.
Many flights actually connect through Casablanca (Mohammed V), so be aware that transfers and customs clearing may actually be there. There are reasonably priced flights to Marrakech from Malaga (Spain) via Casablanca on Royal Air Maroc and direct flights from Madrid & Barcelona for those getting in a competitive round just before Q school.
