PKBGT Girls Jr. Series

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!
