1st International Women’s Day Golf Tournament


This year, the 8th March will see the birth of a new event, the “1st International Women´s Day Golf Tournament” to celebrate International Women’s Day.


The brains behind this event is Karen McMahon, who is well known on the Spanish Costa del Sol as she is presenting the English programme “News & Views” on the local TV channel 3.40 TV in Mijas (Málaga).

When Karen mentioned her thoughts to the Swedish golf manager of La Cala Resort, Ana Nyblom, they quickly had the plans for the day ready:

An open golf competition for lady golfers of any age and handicap. Teams of four players representing a country, in the format of Texas Scramble, to assure that players of all levels can take part and enjoy the day.

The competition will be played on Campo Asia, the first course of the Resort, opened in 1991 and designed by Cabell B. Robinson.

Caracala Spa, who this year celebrates its 5th anniversary, will be the main sponsor with the Townhall of Mijas, 3.40 TV and News & Views supporting the event.

At La Cala Resort, ladies golf has always been supported. The Qualifying school of the Ladies European Tour has been played at the Resort twice and the Royal Spanish Golf Federation has returned three years with the International Lady Junior Championship. Some players that have taken part in these championships are the young and very successful Spaniards Azahara Muñoz, Maria Hernandez & Belen Mozo, English Felicity Johnson & Melissa Reid, French Anne-Lise Caudal, South African Lee-Anne Pace, Norweigan Marianne Skarpnord, Swedish Pernilla Lindgren & Louise Stahle and Dutch Chrijse de Vries.

Entries can be made directly to La Cala Resort by phone (+34) 952 669 033, email golf@lacala.com or on www.lacala.com (golf/competitions).

La Cala Resort is recognized by the Royal Spanish Golf Federation as the biggest golf resort in Spain with 60 holes of golf, the only David Leadbetter Golf Academy in Spain, 5* hotel with 107 rooms, Caracala Spa with 1300 m², restaurants and football pitch.
