Recap: 2019 PKBGT Southeast Series at Spring Valley CC

On Saturday, August 3, the 2019 Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour played the Southeast Series at Spring Valley Country Club in Columbia, SC.  

These PKBGT regional 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.

Prep Division

Leading the charge at Spring Valley on Saturday, Sydney Bowes (Bluffton, SC 2021) took the trophy with a score of 81 (+9). Bowes made five pars in a row to close out her one-over-par front nine! 

Finishing runner-up on Saturday with a score of 82 (+10) was Fabienne Van Kleef (Hilton Head, SC 2020). Van Kleef carded two birdies, both on her back nine. 

Sharing third place in a two-way tie, Caitlyn Cash (Chesnee, SC 2020) and Heather Appelson (Wake Forest, NC 2023) each posted scores of 83 (+11). 

Capping off the top finishers in the Prep division, Mattie Padgett (Seneca, SC 2023) made one birdie in a round of 84 (+12). 

Futures Division 

Earning the win in a tiebreaker playoff finish, Alexis Hodge (Lexington, SC 2022) outlasted her competition, closing the tournament with a score of 83 (+11).

Falling just shy of the sister-sister dual victory, Kylie Bowes (Bluffton, SC 2022) should feel nothing but pride after matching Hodge’s score of 83 (+11). Bowes earned runner-up honors with a birdie to go with. 

Olivia Pellerin (Greenville, SC 2024) earned a third-place finish after posting a score of 90 (+18) in Columbia. 

Rounding out the top finishers at Spring Valley Country Club, Amanda Baker (Chapin, SC 2020) finished in fourth place with a score of 91 (+19). 

The PKBGT Southeast Series returns to the course on August 24 at Country Club of Spartanburg in Spartanburg, SC!

About the PKBGT

Founded in 2007 by the Triad Youth Golf Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, as a local girls’ golf tour in the Triad region of North Carolina, the tour began as a simple concept: create more effective competitive playing opportunities for girls. By utilizing innovative yardage-based divisions instead of the traditional age-based format, the tour focused on developing tournament experience at the player’s pace. The 2019 season will feature over 90 tournaments in 9 states on the East Coast and with over 900 members, the PKBGT is the largest girl’s only tour in the country.  Learn more about the PKBGT at
