On June 26, 2017 the PKBGT played the North Carolina One-Day Series Event at MacGregor Downs CC in Cary, NC. The North Carolina 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 North Carolina One-Day Series events is to provide a fun and friendly tournament on a premium golf course.
