Sixteen events in seven different countries as the prize fund increases for the 2022 LET Access Series.

The LET Access Series (LETAS) is excited to announce the 2022 schedule which is set to feature 16 events in seven different countries across the year.

Players will be competing for a combined prize fund of €710,000 which is an increase on the €552,500 on offer in the 2021 season.

Europe will play host to all the tournaments which will take place between March and October with four trips to France including both the season opener and season finale.

There will also be five tournaments in Sweden, two in Switzerland, two in Spain, as well as visits to Czech Republic, Denmark and Belgium.

The season is set to get underway at the Terre Blanche Ladies Open in France between March 31 and April 2 before finishing at the LETAS Grand Finale L’Isle Adam – Paris between October 21-23.

LETAS has proven to be an excellent pathway for players to develop with Olivia Cowan and Sanna Nuutinen, who graduated in 2015 and 2016, both having secured status on the LPGA Tour for 2023.

Last season England’s Lily May Humphreys was crowned LETAS Order of Merit winner and Rookie of the Year after clinching her maiden LETAS title at the Golf Flanders LETAS Trophy in Belgium and recording seven top-10 finishes.

Five other players clinched their LET cards for 2022 alongside Humphreys including Scotland’s Gabrielle Macdonald, Russia’s Nina Pegova, England’s Rachael Goodall, Sweden’s Sofie Bringner and Finland’s Emilia Tukiainen.

Top six earn membership to the LET

This year will also see the top six players on the 2022 LETAS Order of Merit earn membership to the Ladies European Tour in 2023, while players finishing in sixth to 20th positions will progress to the final stage of LET Tour School.

Speaking about the announcement Alexandra Armas, LET CEO, said:

“We are extremely excited to announce the 2022 schedule for the LET Access Series. With 16 events on this year’s schedule, it looks set to be a great year for the Access Series and it will continue to provide greater competitive opportunities with the potential to progress to the Ladies European Tour.

“The LET is dedicated to supporting our members and growing the game of golf to new and existing markets and we are proud to confirm the release of this schedule. I would like to thank our sponsors, partners and all the federations that have shown their belief, vision and perseverance.”

Ana Larraneta, LETAS Tour Manager, said:

“I’m really excited and proud to announce the schedule for the 2022 season. It is amazing for LETAS members to have such a full schedule and to have a great increase in the prize funds across the season. I’m grateful to the support of sponsors, partners and all the federations who are committed to help grow the women’s game.”
