MENA Tour will have 21 tournaments

 on 2016 schedule

DUBAI  — MENA Golf Tour Patron Darren Clarke today announced the 2016 season schedule that expands its footprint in nine countries across three continents, highlighted by a ground-breaking tie-up with the Sunshine Tour.

Starting with the inaugural Qualifying School at Almenara Golf Club in the Spanish resort Sotogrande in the Cadiz province from February 13 to 16, the tour features a total of 21 tournaments, making maiden voyages to Spain, South Africa, Egypt and Kuwait. 
The introduction of the Q-School, conforming to the guidelines set forth by the game’s apex body, will pave the way for the MENA Golf Tour to become eligible for Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) status, hopefully in a month or two.

Meanwhile, the top 60 players from the 54-hole Q-School in Spain will be eligible for Category-7 membership of the MENA Golf Tour for the 2016.
