Greensboro, NC- The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour concludes the 2020 South Carolina Regional Series this weekend in Florence, SC, at the Country Club of South Carolina. CCSC is a challenging, mature golf venue that has regularly served as a PGA-sanctioned tournament site where golfing legends like Tom Lehman and Lee Janzen played their way into The Show.

About the PKBGT

Founded in 2007 by Girls Golf of America, 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 2020-21 season will feature over 110 tournaments in 10 states on the East Coast, and with over 1,000 members, the PKBGT is the largest girl’s only tour in the country.  Learn more about the PKBGT at http://www.pkbgt.org/.
