On Saturday-Sunday, February 9-10, the 2013 Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour plays the Cape Fear Classic @ River Landing (River Course). River Landing, host of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington Seahawk Classic, is a challenging course for this two-day tournament. The event features a field of 22 players from the PKB Girls’ Golf Tour, the nation’s largest “girls’ only” junior tour with over 400 members in 2012, 137 alumni in the collegiate ranks and 29 National Letter of Intent signees for fall 2013.
