Qualifying school

The qualifying school was played in Portugal in late January and early February 2017. There were two 36-hole "stage 1" events with the leading players in these events joining a number of exempt players in the 72-hole final stage. As in 2016 there were just five qualifying places available for the 2017 season. With 18 exempt players and a minimum field of 72 for the final stage, the leading 27 players and ties from the two "stage 1" event qualified for the final stage. There was a cut after 54 holes with players more than eight shots away from the fifth qualifying place not playing the final round.[1]

The following five players gained their places on the 2017 European Senior Tour:[2]
