On Saturday, May 5, the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour in partnership with the Middle Atlantic PGA plays the first Middle Atlantic One-Day Series event of the 2018 season at Augustine Golf Club in Stafford, VA.
The MA One-Day Series will include 8 One-Day tournaments in the Middle Atlantic region, concluding with a two-day Series Finale at the end of the season. These events offer innovative yardage-based divisions to girls aged 9-17. The PKBGT Series Progression allows players to progress towards playing collegiate golf by playing yardage/skill appropriate tournaments as they develop their game.
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 first Middle Atlantic One-Day Series event at Augustine GC features a full field of 53 players from the PKB Girls’ Golf Tour, the nation’s largest “girls’ only” junior tour.
