The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Golf Tour (PKBGT) announced a new partnership with Golf House Kentucky to bring a new regional series for junior girl golfers in Kentucky.
The PKBGT Kentucky regional series, which features three yardage-based divisions, is aimed at providing developmental junior girl golfers with a comfortable and competitive environment to compete and be recognized on the junior golf circuit. The series will take place at area courses across the state beginning in June. The schedule consists of five, one-day events with a two-day series finale in October.
Golf House Kentucky, the umbrella organization for the Kentucky Golf Association, Kentucky PGA and Kentucky Golf Foundation, will add the series to their current Kentucky PGA Junior Tour schedule to offer girls-only competitions to juniors in the region.
The introduction of the Kentucky Regional Series marks the sixth regional series offered by the PKBGT, an LPGA Foundation approved tour dedicated to creating on course opportunities for junior girls through girls-only golf tournaments.
“We are extremely excited to join forces with Golf House Kentucky and the Kentucky PGA Junior Tour to grow opportunities for junior girls to play in the state,” said PKBGT Tour Director Mike Parker.
The first event will be held Sunday, June 9th, 2019 at World of Golf Executive Course in Florence, KY. Registration is now open for girls ages 9-18. The point leaders of the six-event series will be awarded and ranked through the PKBGT Storie Apparel Order of Merit.

By utilizing innovative yardage-based divisions instead of the traditional age-based format, the tour focused on developing tournament experience at the players pace.
