The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour opened play at the eastern shores of Maryland for the inaugural Eastern Shore Girls Classic at the Links at Perry Cabin. Considered the last course ever designed by Pete Dye, this oceanside golf course is a must-play routing with natural dunes, stunning vistas, and island greens around every turn on the property. Arguably one of the priciest golf resorts on the East Coast, the PKBGT is very fortunate to host an event at this prestigious club.
Avery McCrery (Wilmington, DE 2025) blasted right through the door at the Links at Perry Cabin firing a round of 68 (-4) to lead by ten shots heading into tomorrow’s round. McCrery, a proven winner already this season, will look to hoist her second Bell National title of the season. McCrery dropped six birdies including three in a row on holes two, three, and four. McCrery’s opening round is her best this season by three shots, and just her second round under par of the 2020-2021 season.
