This week’s OCA Augas Santas International Ladies Open will see a field of 73 competitors from 18 different countries compete at Augas Santas Balneario and Golf Resort in Lugo, Spain.
Former European Solheim Cup team member Tania Elosegui is one of 11 Spanish players teeing up in the three-round Ladies European Tour Access Series (LETAS) event.
Current LETAS order of merit leader Melanie Maetzler of Switzerland and the recent Kristianstad Ahus Ladies PGA Open champion Isabella Ramsay of Sweden are among the other notable names in the field.
This is the fourth event of the 2014 LETAS season and the only Spanish event on the schedule this year. The galleries will no doubt be hoping for a home grown winner and their hopes rest with Elosegui, Virginia Espejo, Carmen Alonso, Maria Beautell, Marian de Miguel, Patricia Lobato Moreno, Judith Chavez Lopez, Diana Vazquez Paredes and the three amateurs Piti Martinez Bernal, Carolina Gonzalez Garcia and Rebeca Maruri Aldaz.
The 5,142 metre, 18 hole golf course includes two par 5s, 11 par 4s and five par 3s with an overall par 70 and is situated on a thermal spa. The resort lies in a valley between the Central Orensano Mountains, while the Carabelos River comes into play on several holes.
