Front Royal, VA– The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour headed north for the first of three events in the DMV for the Blue Ridge Girls Classic at Bowling Green Country Club in Front Royal, Virginia. The Bowling Green Country Club North Course, nestled in the northern neck of the Shenandoah Valley, features a picturesque backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains and a landscape dotted by historic 19th-century farmhouses. The Blue Ridge Girls Classic, the second event in the Prep Preview National schedule, welcomed thirty competitors between the Prep Preview and Futures National divisions to the Shenandoah Valley. Residents of North Carolina, Maryland, and Virginia are represented in this weekend’s field vying for bids to the National Tournament of Champions hosted in early December.
Three stand atop the leaderboard in the Prep Preview division with rounds of 78 (+6) for the leaders. Makayla Grubb (Stafford, VA 2025), Fannie Sukhumparnich (Bethesda, MD 2024), and Alice Zou (Potomac, MD 2022) hold the share of the overnight lead and will be in the final pairing for tomorrow’s round. Grubb recorded the most birdies of the trio with three. Sukhumparnich and Zou each snagged one during round one. Look for a shootout in the Blue Ridge Mountains between these three as they have all tasted the spoils of victory in the past year!
