To become a member of the Canadian Professional Golf Tour players must compete in Qualifying School.

This Qualifying school will be held at the Country Club at Soboba Springs and the Oak Valley Golf Club in Southern California from May 8 - 11, 2012.

Number of Spots Awarded
In 2012 the Canadian Tour will be awarding a record number of Cards to participants in Qualifying School. The top 30 finishers will earn fully 'exempt' status for the 2012 Season with the next 30 + Ties earing 'non-exempt' status.
Successful Qualifiers who earn Exempt Status can enter and play in any Full Field event they choose.
Some Canadian Tour events have limited fields. Eligibility for these Restricted Field Events (e.g. Tour Championship, Team Matches) is based on the Order of Merit (Money List) as of a certain date.
Successful qualifiers who earn non-exempt status are ranked based upon their finish at their respective qualifying school and qualify for events based upon their ranking number. A non-exempt member may have to qualify to earn a spot into an event. Non-exempt members can improve their ranking within the membership by winning a tournament (would obtain exempt card) or within the non-exempt category through a minimum of two planned re-shuffles (based on the OOM) during each Tour season.
The Member Entry Fee for Canadian Tour events is $450.00.
Successful Qualifiers must also pay the Annual Membership Fee of $525.00. This is a yearly fee paid by all members of the Canadian Tour prior to the beginning of each season.
