By COLIN FARQUHARSON (Tournament Controller)
Lincolnshire Under-13 county champion India Clyburn, only just turned 12 years of age, is the youngest player so far to enter the 2009 Hacienda del Alamo February Festival at the five-star golf resort in Murcia, south-east Spain.
India, who had qualified for next year's Wee Wonders World Championships at Pinehurst, has a handicap of 12.
She will partner her 17-year-old sister, England girl international Holly, a +1 player, in the Costa Calida Pairs on Sunday, Feburary 15 - first nine holes greensomes, second nine holes better-ball foursomes - and both Woodhall Spa Golf Club members will play as individuals in the 36-hole Hacienda del Alamo Ladies Open on the Monday and Tuesday over the Dave Thomas-designed course.
