OUR MISSION



  • To ensure the future of the game by providing a “Girls Only Tour” that will actively increase participation and interest in girl’s golf
  • To provide a venue for aspiring collegiate golfers in the Carolina’s and beyond to develop, compete and be recognized
  • To provide affordable, top-level tournament competition and development


TOUR OVERVIEW



The PKBGT is an initiative of the non-profit Triad Youth Golf Foundation. The Foundation will provide financial and logistical support to the Tour and work with community and regional leaders to promote girls golf in the Carolina’s. The mission of T.Y.G.F. is to provide cost-conscious access to golf with a specific focus on girl’s golf development through the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf programs of Greensboro & Winston-Salem.

In addition, 2016 will feature the return of the Collegiate Series for 19 - 25 year olds looking for some competition during the summer months.

A players tour ranking will be tracked by the PKBGT Performance Index. In addition, each tour series will feature an Order of Merit Standings LIst which will gauge each player's standing in their given series.
