As the 2019 season wrapped up last weekend at Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club, the planning begins for the most wonderful time of the year…. Invitational season!!

This fall, the PKBGT will host four invitation-only events throughout the Carolinas. The most notable and top-ranked event of them all, the 11th annual PKBGT Invitational, will be held in the greater Winston-Salem area at Bermuda Run Country Club.
