The Peggy Kirk Bell Golf Tour Kentucky Series will include six events between June and August. The goal of the series is to promote and increase participation among middle and high school girls’ golfers.
All PKBGT events are “girls only” and divisions are based on skill/yardage instead of strictly age. We have divisions of play for players 9 – 17 years old of multiple skill levels, including players just getting their feet wet with on-course stroke play competitions (Futures 18-hole & Discovery 9-hole) as well as a college preparatory division (Prep 18-hole) for players looking for longer yardage competition. Players can play one or play them all!
2020 SERIES SCHEDULE:
FORMAT: Each event will feature a stroke-play tournament for each Series of play. The Top finishers in each Series at each event will receive awards in addition to season-long points in their division.
