On Saturday, July 28th, the 2018 Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour played the North Carolina One-Day Series at Bermuda Run Country Club.
The NC One-Day Series will include 11 One-Day tournaments in North Carolina, 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 North Carolina One-Day Series event at Bermuda Run Country Club features a field of 48 players from the PKB Girls’ Golf Tour, the nation’s largest “girls’ only” junior tour.
The Champion of the Prep Series is Camryn Lamp (Conover, NC 2021) with a score of 80. Victoria Ladd (Greensboro, NC 2019) finished runner-up with a score of 81. There was a two-way tie for 3rd place.
