The 1999 European Tour was the 28th official season of golf tournaments known as the PGA European Tour.[1]

The Order of Merit was won by Scotland's Colin Montgomerie.


The table below shows the 1999 European Tour schedule which was made up of 42 regular tournaments, which included the four major championships and the major national opens around Europe. There were several changes from the previous season, with the addition of three World Golf Championships, the Malaysian Open, the Estoril Open, the West of Ireland Golf Classic, the Scottish PGA Championship and the Sarazen World Open, and the loss of the Johnnie Walker Classic due to rescheduling from January to November, the Cannes Open and the Open Novotel Perrier. Money earned from the U.S. Open, U.S. PGA Championship and World Golf Championships counted towards the Order of Merit.
