Do you want a chance to play on the same course as the LPGA tour? How about an opportunity to qualify for an LPGA event at that very same course?
The LPGA Pure Silk Girls Junior Championship
The LPGA, in partnership the Middle Atlantic PGA, hosts the 2019 LPGA Pure Silk Girls Junior Championship on May 4-5, 2019 at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, VA. The event will feature the best players from around the region and beyond.
The All-Girls invitational tournament will be held on Kingsmill’s River Course-the same course that the LPGA pros compete on at the LPGA Pure Silk Championship, which takes place two weeks after the Junior Championship.
Courtesy of the MAPGA, the winner of the Pure Silk Girls Junior Championship receives an exemption into the Monday Qualifier of the LPGA Tour event, with a chance to play alongside LPGA Tour professionals on the River Course. They will be one of two amateurs with the opportunity to qualify for the event and the only junior to do so.
Earn an exemption through the PKBGT
The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Golf Tour is excited to announce that the Tour will be represented by several exemptions into the event. Who can earn an exemption into the LPGA Pure Silk Girls Junior Championship?

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.
