Powerful Spanish squad of the 1 to 3 October at the Terramar Golf Club
Remarkable amalgamation of seniority and youth in the roster of Spanish players present at the Estrella Damm Ladies Open presented by Catalunya, tournament that returns to the Ladies European Tour calendar and whose fourth edition will be held at the Terramar Golf Club of the 1 to 3 October 2021. A score of local golfers will want to follow in the footsteps of Carlota Ciganda, champion in 2019, and will face the qualified international squad led by the laureate Emily Kristine Pedersen, protagonist in the last Solheim Cup won by the European team and last year's winner of the Race to Costa del Sol, the ranking of the European women's circuit sponsored by this region of the Andalusian coast.
There is expectation to see how Ana Peláez responds to this new challenge, who dazzled last year at the Andalusia Costa del Sol Open in Spain while still an amateur and who joined the professional ranks this year at the Aramco Team Series in Sotogrande. After your career at the University of South Carolina and going through the most exclusive appointments (como el Augusta Women’s Amateur Tournament, the U.S. Open, the Palmer Cup or the European Championship), the malagueña arrives at Terramar with the firm intention of carving out her place on the Ladies European Tour.
Peláez will be escorted by other players who have already been found in the amateur field and who make their debut on this circuit, like Elena Hualde from Navarra, the Madrilenian María Herráez, the Valencian Marta Pérez and the Catalan Paz Marfà, who makes his professional debut in Sitges. It so happens that Peláez, Hualde, Herráez, Pérez and Marfá, next to the Guadiareña María Parra, made up the Spanish team that was the European Under-18 champion by teams in 2015, a golden generation.
Nagore Martínez Salcedo also deserves special attention, of only 13 years, who arrives at the tournament after finishing second (and play the playoff for the title) in the prestigious Amundi Evian International Championship. This young promise has been champion of Catalonia in four consecutive editions and champion of Spain twice. In 2021, what's more, has been awarded two zones of the RFEG and is currently the number 1 in the National Children's Ranking.
Spanish women complete the registration with international victories on the professional scene such as María Hernández, Mireia Prat, Natalia Escuriola, Maria Beautell, Elia Folch, Carmen alonso, Noemi Jimenez, Patricia Sanz and Laura Gómez. Rounding out local cast Harang Lee, Marta Martin, Marta Muñoz (which also premieres on the LET), Natasha Fear and Camilla Hedberg, local player who will undoubtedly have the support of the public gathered at the Terramar Golf Club.
