Fifteen players from Britain and Ireland in

field for next week's Spanish amateur

Scotland (4), England (4), Wales (4) and Ireland (3) make up an entry of 15 players to the Spanish women's open amateur championship at Club de Golf Platja de Pals near Girona in North-east Spain next week.
Whereas the Portuguese women's open amateur championship on the Algarve a few weeks back was four rounds of stroke-play, the "Spanish" format is two rounds of stroke-play to produce 32 qualifiers for match-play.
The championship starts on Wednesday and finishes with an 18-hole final on the morning of Sunday, March 7.
Bidding for an Iberian double is Spain's Anna Arrese, a +3 player who won the Portuguese women's open amateur.
The GB&I entries with their handicaps are:
Kelsey MacDonald +2
Louise Kenney +1.8
Laura Murray +1.2
*Lauren Mackin 1.2

Rachel Jennings +2.6
Hannah Barwood +2.3
Charlotte Ellis +1.6
Charlie Douglass +0.8

Danielle McVeigh +2.5
Aedin Murphy +0.3
Clara Butler 1.6

Katherine O'Connor +1.4
Amy Boulden 0.4
Tara Davies 1.0
Gemma Bradbury 1.1

*Lauren Mackin's mother has informed the Editor that her daughter is a "recreational golfer" who "would never be able to play for Scotland because she lives in Spain." Majorca-based Lauren played well in the Orange Blossom Tour in Florida last month. She is a former Balearic Isles girl champion.
