ABOUT THE PEGGY KIRK BELL GIRLS' GOLF TOUR


Founded in 2007 by the non-profit Triad Youth Golf Foundation as a local girls' golf tour in the Triad region of North Carolina, the tour began as a simple concept from Tour Founder Robert Linville, PGA: create more effective competitive playing opportunities for girls in the Carolina's. Developed as a partnership with Tour Director Mike Parker and two LPGA teaching professionals, the tour set out to change the landscape of junior girls' golf. By utilizing innovative yardage-based divisions instead of the traditional age-based format, the tour focused on developing tournament experience at the players pace. Learn more about the PKBGT at http://www.pkbgt.org/.

PKB Girls' Golf Tour

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

In 2017, the PKB Girls’ Golf Tour enters its eleventh season. In its short history, the Tour has grown leaps and bounds. Started in 2007 as a venue for aspiring collegiate golfers in the Carolinas to develop, compete, and be recognized, the Tour has expanded to host events in seven states, with over 600 members, and more than 550 members advancing to the collegiate ranks.

We are excited about the Tour’s growth and the profound impact it has had on its participants’ recruitment and success in college. In addition, it is rewarding to hear the many stories of friendships made both on the course and in the gallery. We strive to make the PKBGT more than just a golf tournament. We aim for a positive environment to grow and sustain girls golfers.

In the fall of 2014, the PKBGT started the Let's Play Campaign. Our vision through the Let’s Play Campaign is to establish 1,000 “girls’ only” tournaments in the next 10 years based on a multi-level competitive framework which cultivates, enhances, and recognizes girls’ successes in the game.

PKBGT Let's Play Campaign

We aim to accomplish this vision through 3 strategic goals:

  1. INCREASE LPGA-USGA GIRLS GOLF MEMBERSHIP AND PARTICIPATION
  2. SUSTAIN GROWTH THROUGH APPROPRIATE COMPETITIVE OPPORTUNITIES
  3. DEVELOP EQUITY IN COMPETITIVE OPPORTUNITIES FOR GIRLS IN GOLF

Join us on the Let's Play Campaign!
