Crown Isle will host the fourth and final Mackenzie Tour - PGA Tour Canada Q-School next year.

Crown Isle fourth and final Q-School tourney next year

Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community will be the fourth and final stop of the 2016 Mackenzie Tour – PGA Tour Canada Qualifying Tournaments.

The Courtenay course is the only Canadian stop. Each Q-School will have fields of 132 players maximum competing for status.

The four 72-hole, no-cut qualifying tourneys will take place at the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at Reunion Resort in Orlando, Fla. March 21-25, PGA Village’s Wanamaker Course in Port St. Lucie, Fla. from March 28 to April 1, Carlton Oaks Country Club in Santee, Calif. from April 25-29 and Crown Isle from May 2-6.

“Over the past three seasons, we’ve had a great deal of interest from players in qualifying to play on the Mackenzie Tour, and we felt it was important to add a fourth site to give as many players as possible an opportunity to qualify,” said Mackenze Tour president Jeff Monday.

“Our goal is to provide opportunities for the best players available to earn access to the Web.com Tour, and we look forward to seeing the next generation of players to make the first step on the path to the PGA Tour.”

Reunion’s Nicklaus Course, which hosted Mackenzie Tour qualifying in 2014, returns as one of two Florida sites along with PGA Village’s Wanamaker Course, which has previously played host to PGA TOUR and Web.com Tour Q-School as well as the PGA of Canada Assistants’ Championship.

Carlton Oaks, also a previous host to PGA TOUR and Web.com Tour Q-School, will host Mackenzie Tour qualifying for the first time, while the spring’s final Qualifying Tournament will return to Crown Isle, which was recently announced as a host of Mackenzie Tour Qualifying through 2020.

The application to enter Mackenzie Tour qualifying will be open to the public live at PGATOUR.COM/MackenzieTour on Jan. 21, 2016. Entry fees will once again be $2,750 USD.

The full 2016 Mackenzie Tour schedule will be announced in early 2016.
