The Dutch will host the B-NL Challenge Trophy as the Challenge Tour returns to The Netherlands for the first time in over a decade

The Challenge Tour has announced its schedule of tournaments for 2021, which will feature 25 events in 15 different countries.

The schedule, which is subject to the impact of Government guidance in the countries where tournaments are played, features a mixture of long-standing and new tournaments in a season which will run from April to November as the next crop of golfing stars compete for one of the 20 cards on offer for the 2022 European Tour season, which represents an increase of five from the 15 spots available at the end of the last full Challenge Tour season in 2019.
New additions to the schedule include a trip to The Dutch, the three-time host venue of the KLM Open on the European Tour, for the B-NL Challenge Trophy, as the Challenge Tour returns to the Netherlands for the first time since 2009. New events in the UK and Germany, whose venues are yet to be confirmed, will also make their debuts on the schedule, with all three events taking place consecutively in August and September.

Several long-standing events such as the Hauts de France – Pas de Calais Golf Open, the Swiss Challenge and the Rolex Trophy, will all return to the schedule in 2021, with the latter celebrating its 30th anniversary at Golf Club de Genève, as the top 40 players on the Road to Mallorca rankings tee it up alongside amateur guests in the Pro-Am format.

The 2021 season will begin with the Limpopo Championship in April, the first of three co-sanctioned events with the Sunshine Tour in South Africa, and end almost seven months later at the Challenge Tour Grand Final in Mallorca in November.
