PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – The PGA Tour announced its 25-event Web.com Tour schedule Friday, adding new tournaments in Oregon, Nova Scotia and Ohio.

The Cleveland Open is set for June 5-8 at A.W. Tillinghast-designed Lakewood in Westlake. The Nova Scotia Classic will played July 3-6 at Ashburn in Halifax, and the Portland Open will close the 21-event regular season at Pumpkin Ridge on Aug. 21-24.

The Stonebrae Classic in Hayward, Calif., is returning after a one-year break because of clubhouse construction. It will be played July 31-Aug. 3.

Twenty-five PGA Tour cards for the 2014-15 season will be awarded from the money list at the end of the regular season. An additional 25 PGA Tour cards are available in the Web.com Tour Finals, the four event series that returns to Fort Wayne, Ind. (Aug. 25-31); Davidson, N.C. (Sept. 1-7); Columbus, Ohio (Sept. 8-14); and Ponte Vedra Beach (Sept. 15-21).

“This tour is clearly positioned as the path to the PGA Tour,” PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said. “We believe the Web.com Tour’s global appeal, presence and structure are at an all-time high and positioned to be elevated even higher.”

The tour’s 25th season will open Feb. 13-16 with the Colombia Championship in Bogota. The U.S. schedule will begin with the Louisiana Open on March 27-30.

Four events – Wichita, Kan. (June 19-22); Boise, Idaho (July 17-20); Springfield, Mo. (Aug. 7-10); and Knoxville, Tenn. (Aug. 14-17) – remain from the tour’s inaugural season in 1990.
