English teenagers shine in Spain 
8th March 2011

English teenagers, led by Norfolk's Amber Ratcliffe, staged a series of winning performances at the Hacienda del Alamo women's and girls' golf festival in Murcia Spain.

Amber, who trains with EWGA's Select Midlands squad, was a double winner, capturing the Murcia U16 title and the 54-hole Hacienda ladies' championship.

The Royal Cromer player was joined in the winners' circle by England girl international Bronte Law (Bramhall), Daisy-May Kenny (Cuddington), Gabriella Cowley (West Essex) and English schools' champion Meghan MacLaren (Wellingborough).

Amber, 15, opened her account with a 10-shot win in the Murcia U16 championship, concluding the 36-hole event with a level par 72. In the Hacienda ladies' championship she started with an immaculate four-under par 68 and went on to return a 54-hole total of one-under par, to win by four shots.

Bronte,15, scored a six-stroke win in the Murcia ladies' championship. She produced an excellent three-under par 69 in the second round to pull away from Lucy Williams (Mid-Herts), a past English mid-amateur champion.

Daisy-May also beat par in the second round of the Murcia U18 championship, with a one-under 71. She won by the massive margin of 31 shots and had the same 36-hole gross total as Bronte: 148.

Gabriella,14, won the Hacienda U16 girls' title by an impressive 11 shots from her closest challenger, Alice Hewson (Berkhamsted) the English U13 champion.

Meghan, 16, broke 80 in all three rounds to win the Hacienda U18 championship by three shots from Daisy-May.
