The winner of the Youth Achievement (girls) category at The Comet Sports Awards is flying off for some winter sun this weekend
Stevenage golfer Charlie Douglass will fine tune her game for the 2007 season with warm weather training in Spain organised by the English Ladies' Golf Association.
The 17-year-old, from Brocket Hall Golf Club, was the runner-up in the 2006 English girls' championship.
She is one of eight players from ELGA's Team England Futures under-18 squad who will spend a week at the La Cala resort, near Marbella, from Saturday onwards.
