Snow Hill, NC– The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour headed east for the first playing of the Cutter Creek Girls Classic at Cutter Creek Golf Club in Snow Hill, North Carolina. This event featured contestants in our Prep Preview and Futures National divisions in the event just before the Regional Tournament of Champions at the Palmetto Dunes Golf Resort. Many of our youngest players on the tour who just graduated out of the Discovery Division made their eighteen hole debut at Cutter Creek Golf Club.
Cutter Creek lived up to the hype as one of the best up and coming golf facilities in the Carolina’s. Leading wire-to-wire for her first PKBGT National Series title was Charlotte Scully (Chadds Ford, PA 2021). Before this weekend, Scully’s best finish was 20th at the Mid-Atlantic Girls Championship at Musket Ridge Golf Club in Myersville, MD. The 17-year-old opened the tournament with a (+4) round of 76 that included a birdie on the first hole. Scully made it interesting for herself on the final day, going out in thirty-six and home in forty-three with a 9 on the par-five eighteenth hole. Waiting for Scully to finish was Karsyn Roberts (Pikeville, NC 2024), who tied Scully’s round on Saturday (+4). Scully sealed the deal in extras to claim the Prep Preview title.
1. Charlotte Scully (Chadds Ford, PA 2021) / 76 / 79 = 155 (+11)*
2. Karsyn Roberts (Pikeville, NC 2024) / 79 / 76 = 155 (+11)

Dominance, a trait that follows Jenna Kim (Raleigh, NC 2027) no matter where she plays. Fresh off one of the best seasons ever recorded on the Discovery NC Regional Series that included six victories and a scoring average under par, Kim tabbed her first National Series title over the weekend at the Cutter Creek Girls Classic. Kim fired a four birdie round of 72 (E) to open the tournament. The Raleigh, NC native, followed on Sunday with five more birdies and a final round score of 71 (-1) en route to a twelve shot victory. Finishing in the silver position was Ella June Hannant (Pikeville, NC 2027), a friend and fellow Pikeville, NC native of Karsyn Roberts. Hannant fired rounds of 77 (+5) and 78 (+6) to finish the tournament at eleven over par. Breannon Council (Wilson, NC 2024) rounded out the top three at (+23).
1. Jenna Kim (Raleigh, NC 2027) / 72 / 71 = 143 (-1)
2. Ella June Hannant (Pikeville, NC 2027) / 77 / 78 = 155 (+11)
3. Breannon Council (Wilson, NC 2024) / 80 / 87 = 167 (+23)
