On September 24, 2016 the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour will play the Middle Atlantic One-Day Series event at the Regency at Dominion Valley. The course was designed by Arnold Palmer and features wide fairways and gorgeous mountains views! There are 21 players in the field and will include the Futures and Discovery Series.
Featured in the Futures Series this weekend are Parker Perry (Richmond, VA 2020), Alice Zou (Potomac, MD 2022), and Shalie Williams (Shawboro, NC 2018). Perry is currently ranked 135th on the PKBGT Performance Index and won the inaugural Middle Atlantic Series event at Windy Hill last month. Zou is currently ranked 141st on the Performance Index and placed second at the Middle Atlantic Series event at Windy Hill. Williams is ranked 158th on the Performance Index and had two top-5 finishes this year.
The Discovery Series features a field of two players from the Maryland/DC area. They will play 9-holes for the title and awards will be presented to the top-2 players in the Series.
The PKBGT has partnered with the Middle Atlantic PGA and will host five one-day events in Virginia and Maryland. The series will feature three divisions: Prep, Futures, and Discovery. One the day of each of the Middle Atlantic Series events, players are welcome to attend our “Introduction to Tournament Golf” workshops. The workshops are designed to promote and increase participation among middle and high school age developmental female golfers. Topics covered at the workshops will include learning to become comfortable playing competitive golf, learning basic rules of golf, and building confidence on the course.
