The Ladies European Tour Access Series (LET Access Series), started in 2010 as the Generali Ladies Tour, is a series of golf tournaments for women’s golf professionals and top European amateurs who have not yet qualified to compete on the Ladies European Tour (LET). to do. The Tour is similar to the Men’s European Challenge Tour, which has been around for much longer and has many more tournaments.

Two more tournaments were added in the fall. At the end of this series, the three best professionals and the three best amateurs will receive an invitation to the French Open, which will take place in September. The best player will also receive a tour ticket for the next season. Number two and three can go directly to the Finals of the Tour School.

The Generali Ladies Tour would start in March 2010 with the Open at La Nivelle. However, the first lap was canceled due to snow on the track. The second round also turned out to be canceled, so it was decided to organize the tournament at a later date. That was June 9-11. The Terre Blanche Ladies Open, also in March, thus became the first tournament of this tour. It was won by 25-year-old Caroline Afonso, it was the first win since she turned professional in late 2007. The second tournament was won by 23-year-old Jade Schaeffer, born on the island of Réunion but living in Paris. Karen Lunn, president of the Ladies European Tour (LET}, played on La Nivelle to show her support.

The 2012 tour saw an amateur win for the first time in a tournament: Scottish Curtis Cup player Pamela Pretswell won the Ljungbyhed Park Ladies Open by two strokes before turning pro. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th place were also occupied by amateurs. Anastasia Kostina was the first Russian to win a LET tournament that year and received a wildcard to the Deloitte Ladies Open.
