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.
Claire Lilley, ELGA's national training manager, said: "This week will be really good preparation for the start of the season.
"The girls will work mainly on short game technique, taking advantage of the warmer weather and the very good facilities."
