On August 26, 2017 the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour will play the Middle Atlantic One-Day Series event at The Hollows GC (Cottage/Lake Course). 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 23 players and will include the Prep, Futures, and Discovery Series.
Featured in the Prep Series is Paris Fieldings (Suffolk, VA 2023), Hannah Hankim (Potomac, MD 2021), and Jessica Rathbone (Montpelier, VA 2020). Paris is currently ranked 1st on the Prep Middle Atlantic Series Order of Merit and finished in 1st place at her last MA One-Day Series Event at Belmont Golf Course. Hannah is currently ranked 5th in the Prep Middle Atlantic Series Order of Merit and finished in 1st place at the MA One-Day Series at Hobbit’s Glen GC. Jessica is currently ranked 2nd in the Prep Middle Atlantic Series Order of Merit and was the 2016 Champion of the MA One-Day Series at The Hollows GC. They look to continue their success this weekend at the 2017 MA One-Day Series at The Hollows GC.
Featured in the Futures Series are Alice Zou (Potomac, MD 2022), D’yan Robinson (Richmond, VA 2022), and Katie Park (Fairfax, VA 2022). Alice is currently ranked 4th on the Futures MA Series Order of Merit and finished in 1st place at her last MA One-Day Series event at University of Maryland.

The Discovery Series features a field of 7 players from Virginia. They will play 9-holes for the title, and awards will be presented to the top-2 finishers in the series.
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.
