Mark McNulty is excited for the MCB Tour Championship to get under way when the final three events of the 2019 Staysure Tour season begin at the MCB Tour Championship – Madagascar from November 29 to December 1.
The 66-year-old has played golf in an array of locations around the world but will make his first trip to Antananarivo, the Madagascan capital, as Golf Club Du Rova prepares to host the first European Tour-sanctioned event in the country.
Born in Zimbabwe, McNulty has won 58 worldwide titles and nearly claimed his 59th when he finished runner-up at the 2017 MCB Tour Championship in Mauritius.
The Irishman, who is playing his 15th season on the over-50s circuit, is eager to get the MCB Tour Championship under way, especially before ending the year at the familiar Legends Course at Constance Belle Mare Plage.
“I’ve never been to Madagascar before,” he said. “It’s one place that I’ve always wanted to go to for its photography, but I won’t be able to do much of that while I am there.
“I’m looking forward to Madagascar and then going to Constance Lemuria. I’ve heard the golf course is interesting and then finishing off in Mauritius, that’s a bonus and somewhere I like very much.
“It’s not going to be an easy three weeks of travel and at my stage of life you want to put the tough travels out the way but I’m really looking forward to it.
“I’ve known Raoul Gufflet, the Deputy Chief Executive of MCB, for a long time and he twisted my arm and said, “you’ve got to come out for these three” and finishing in Mauritius will be the icing on the cake.”
