Internationals Gabriella Cowley and Annabel Dimmock will represent England Golf in the Nations Cup event at the Helen Holm Scottish open stroke play championship at Troon from 25-27 April.

The following weekend, May 3-4, they will team up with fellow international, Alex Peters, for the Nations Cup event at the Welsh open stroke play championship at Prestatyn.

The players:

Gabriella Cowley, 18 (Hanbury Manor, Hertfordshire) was runner-up in this year’s Portuguese amateur championship. She won the England Golf girls’ order of merit for 2013, a year when her achievements included qualifying for the Women’s British Open, winning the Critchley Salver and helping England to retain their crown at the Girls’ Home Internationals.

Annabel Dimmock, 17, (Wentworth, Surrey, image © Leaderboard Photography) won the 2014 Jones-Doherty Cup during a successful trip to the USA for the Orange Blossom Tour, where she was also runner-up in the South Atlantic women’s amateur. She has followed up by becoming runner-up in the Spanish women’s amateur, taking fifth individual place in the European Nations Cup and, with Steven Brown, winning the Sunningdale Foursomes.

Alex Peters, 20, (Notts Ladies’, Nottinghamshire) has just won the 2014 Leveret, the prestigious scratch event at Formby ladies’, and reached the quarter finals of this year’s Spanish amateur. She topped the 2013 England Golf women’s order of merit, sponsored by Lorrin Golf having been runner-up in the English amateur and Welsh stroke play championships. Like Gabriella Cowley, she represented GB&I in the Vagliano Trophy against the Continent of Europe.
