Recap: Cape Fear Girls Classic

Wilmington, NC The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour headed to Wilmington, NC  for the final round of the Cape Fear Girls Classic at the Country Club of Landfall. 


Bell National

It was tight at the top of the leaderboard entering the final round but the day belonged to Kasey McIlvaine (Raleigh, NC 2023). McIlvaine pulled away from the rest of the pack by parring her first ten holes. From there she emphatically closed the door by playing her final eight holes in 2-under par to post a closing 70 (-2) and the only round under par for the tournament. This was McIlvaine’s first PKBGT win! Eleanor Burnette (Wrightsville Beach, NC 2023) started the day hot birdieing her first two holes of the day and adding a third on the par-3 sixth. She would go onto shoot a round of even par which would be good enough to finish in solo second. Zoey Cho (Suwanee, GA 2025) impressed by making four birdies on Sunday but would ultimately finish tied for third with Maria Isabella Errichetto (Southern Pines, NC 2027). Errichetto, who held a share of the overnight lead, made her lone birdie of the day on the 18th to share third place.

1. Kasey McIlvaine (Raleigh, NC 2023) / 72 + 70 = 142 (-2)

2.  Eleanor Burnette (Wrightsville Beach, NC 2023) / 76 + 72 = 148 (+4)

Futures National

Emerson Devers (Murrells Inlet, SC 2025) didn’t sleep on the lead Saturday night due to round one play needing to be finished early Sunday morning. But by the time she headed to the first tee on Sunday, she had a solo lead. After playing her first six holes in 3-over, she birdied the seventh and eagled the par-5 eighth to get back to even for the day. Devers would then birdie two of her final three holes to post 80 (+8) and win by four strokes. One of the youngest players in the field, Jasmine Limm (Chesterfield, VA 2029), shot the round of the day in the Futures National division with a Sunday 79 (+7). This moved her the leaderboard five spots and gave her a solo second place finish. Kirstan Hodges (Concord, NC 2026) birdied her first hole of the day and added another on the par-4 fourteenth hole pushing her into third place for the tournament. London Fitzgerald (Pinehurst, NC 2027) got off to a hot start on Sunday birdieing three of her first five holes. She would add another birdie before her round was finished and earned fourth place.

1. Emerson Devers (Murrells Inlet, SC 2025) / 78 + 80 = 158 (+14)
