Spain-based Irish senior women's international & husband enter HdA
February Festival

Spain-based Pamela Morgan, a senior international for Ireland last season, is one of the latest entries for the Hacienda del Alamo February Festival at the five-star Murcia resort from February 12 to 17.
Pamela lives at Estepona on the Costa del Sol with his husband Brian. They both play off 10 and they are both members at La Cala Golf Club.
They have both entered the St Valentine's Day pro-am on Saturday, February 14 and the Costa Calida Pairs competition on the Sunday. Pamela will also play in the 36-hole opening event, the Murcia Ladies Open on Thursday and Friday, February 12 and 13.
Both Pamela and Brian, pictured above, are entitled to a free practice round over the Dave Thomas-designed championship course which delighted the Scottish Senior Golfing Society Spanish Festival competitors last week.

When charity doesn't begin at home ...
When Brian and Pamela went on holiday to Gambia, they got more than a tan. They got a mission - to help the local people. Louise France hears their story
