The table below shows the 2001 European Tour schedule which was made up of 47 regular tournaments, which included the four major championships and the World Golf Championships.

There were several changes from the previous season, with the Dunhill Links Championship replacing the Dunhill Cup, the Open de Madrid replacing the Turespana Masters, the Standard Life Loch Lomond being rebranded as the revived Scottish Open, the addition the Caltex Singapore Masters, the Argentine Open and the Sao Paulo Brazil Open, the return of the Cannes Open replacing the originally scheduled Estoril Open, and the loss of both Brazilian 500 year anniversary tournaments and the Belgian Open.

Terrorist attacks in the United States on 11 September led to changes on the tour schedule with the WGC-American Express Championship being cancelled and the Ryder Cup matches at The Belfry being postponed until 2002. The Estoril Open was also cancelled in the wake of the attacks due to security concerns by the tournaments main sponsors.
