Greensboro, NC — December 6, 2017: The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Golf Tour (PKBGT) announced a new partnership with Orange Whip Trainer, an entity of Jimmy Hack Golf to join as a Premier Tour Partner.
Orange Whip, an Easley, South Carolina based company, will offer a “first tournament free” program for girls interested in trying any PKBGT Regional One-Day event. The Orange Whip First Tournament Free program eliminates a major barrier to entry for girls wishing to play tournament golf by making their introduction to tournament golf free.
“The Orange Whip is very excited for the opportunity to partner with the PKBGT Tour to help promote girl’s golf. We are committed to helping all golfers reach their playing potential and have more fun on the golf course,” said Orange Whip CEO and Developer Jim Hackenberg.
In addition, Orange Whip will be contributing to the “Inspire. Dream. Achieve” grant fund, which provides financial assistance towards tournament entry fees for players with financial need.
“We are excited for Orange Whip to join the PKBGT ‘Let’s Play’ Campaign to create more opportunities for girls to experience and develop in tournament golf,” said PKBGT Director Mike Parker. “We are honored to work together to create more on-course opportunities for the girls and eliminate obstacles to entry.”
Representatives from Orange Whip will be present for product demos at the PKBGT Orange Whip Classic at the Clemson University Walker Golf Course from February 10-11, 2018 in addition to select PKBGT events during the 2018 season.
