The 2018 Bonnie Blackburn Girls Golf Fest is set for October 19-21. 

Girls ages 7-17 are invited to attend.  


Bonnie Blackburn: Her Passion For Golf and Orange

Bonnie Blackburn (1917-2004) was an avid golfer for over half a century. Her enthusiasm and passion for the sport was known throughout Tennessee, particularly in the Knoxville area where she resided. She was involved not only with the Tennessee Golf Association, but also with the Knoxville Area Women's Golf Association and an avid follower of NCAA Women's Golf, especially rooting for the University of Tennessee Lady Vols. Bonnie funded the Bonnie Blackburn Girls Golf Fund which focuses on exposing and growing the game of golf to young women and annually provides most of the funds necessary to conduct the annual Bonnie Blackburn Girls Golf Fest.


This year, the BBGGF is celebrating all the great things that happen during the Fall in Tennessee. Pumpkins, cooler temperatures, college football, tailgating and of course, fun golf activities.
