PGA North is on course for its busiest campaign for years with several new fixtures and the welcome return of some old ones.
The Leeds Cup goes back to its spiritual home Cobble Hall, the PGA North Region Championship will be played at Bolton Old Links for the first time, and the long-running James Brearley Lancashire Open remains at Blackpool North Shore.
And the end-of-season Order of Merit will be settled at Cumberland club Carus Green.
Collective prize funds of more than £30,000 are at stake in the School Bus pro-am at Disley, the Campey Turfcare Pro-Greenkeeper Challenge at Hart Common and the inaugural Renewable Energy pro-am at Hull.
Regional secretary Jonathan Paine said: “As well as these events we will also be returning to familiar clubs for many of our fantastically supported pro-ams at Brough, Hazel Grove, Werneth, Delamere Forest, Lancaster, Crewe and Sand Moor.
“In all 2017 has a positive outlook and we hope that we will continue to grow throughout the year.”
Meanwhile, assistants’ rankings events are scheduled for Carlisle, Ellesmere, High Legh Park, Helsby, Northcliffe, Dore & Totley with the final at Bolton.
