On May 13, 2017 the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour will play the Middle Atlantic One-Day Series event at Augustine Golf Club, located in Stafford, VA. One-day tournaments are designed for golfers of all skill levels, but are a great place for development golfers to “get in to the swing of things” playing tournament golf. The goal of One-Day Series events is to provide a fun and friendly tournament on a premium golf course. The tournament features a field of 23 players and will include the Prep, Futures, and Discovery Series.
Featured in the Prep Series is Jessica Rathbone (Montpelier, VA 2020). Jessica is currently ranked 7th on the Storie Apparel Order of Merit – MA. She also finished top 10 at the PKBGT Masters at Greenville Country Club.
Featured in the Futures Series Sue Lee (Lorton, VA 2022) and Brooke Burnette (Suffolk, VA 2018). Lee is ranked 6th on the Storie Apparel Order of Merit – MA and was runner-up at the Maryland Classic last weekend. Burnette is ranked T12 on the Storie Apparel Order of Merit – MA and finished top 10 at the Carolina’s Classic last weekend at Carolina Trace CC. Both players look to continue their success this weekend at Augustine Golf Club.
The Discovery Series features a field of two players from the Virginia 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. On 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.
