On August 5, 2017 the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour will play the Middle Atlantic One-Day Series event at Hobbit’s Glen GC. 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 Open Series events is to provide a fun and friendly tournament on a premium golf course. The tournament features a field of 35 players and will include the Prep, Futures, and Discovery Series.
Featured in the Prep Series is Faith McIlvain (Elliott City, MD 2020) and Hannah Jonely (Ashburn, VA 2020). Faith is currently ranked 8th on the Prep MA One-Day Series Order of Merit and finished in 3rd place at her last MA One-Day Series Event at University of Maryland. Hannah is currently ranked T17 in the Prep MA One-Day Series Order of Merit and finished runner-up at the Commonwealth Classic at Hidden Creek CC. They look to continue their success this weekend at the MA One-Day Series at Hobbits Glen GC.
Featured in the Futures Series D’yan Robinson (Richmond, VA 2022), Shaina Beach (Broadway, VA 2019), and Sue Lee (Lorton, VA 2022). D’yan is currently ranked 7th on the Futures MA Series Order of Merit and finished top-10 at her last two MA One-Day Series events. Shaina is currently ranked 25th on the Futures MA Series Order of Merit and finished T4th place at her first MA One-Day Series event at Belmont GC.

The PKBGT has partnered with the Middle Atlantic PGA and will host 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.
