Due to various concerns in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, the LPGA Tour has adjusted the dates for Stage II of 2022 LPGA Q-School. Stage II will still be held in Venice, Fla., at its traditional venue, Plantation Golf and Country Club’s Bobcat and Panther Courses. However, the dates have been adjusted from Oct. 18-21 to Nov. 17-20.
“We are so thankful that our friends at Plantation Golf and Country Club survived the hurricane and are all safe. Now that they have had time to survey the course, we agree that we need to make the difficult decision to postpone Stage II of Q-School,” said Kathy Lawrence, vice president of Tour Operations and Q-Series. “With Stage II in just two weeks, we do not have time to properly secure an alternative venue, and we also do not want to pull this competition from our long-time partners in Venice. They will have our full support as they clean up the course and we look forward to a great week with them in November.”
While the courses at Plantation Golf and Country Club did not see catastrophic damage, the storm surge downed a significant number of trees and washed out many bunkers. The greater Venice area also saw significant flooding, with many hotels and restaurants facing extended closures due to lack of power.
The entry criteria for Stage II of LPGA Q-School will not change. Entries closed on Aug. 8.
