What is the age where most girls start getting pubic hairs?

There is no given age.

Pubic hair is but one aspect of puberty and development, and, like most things has a good deal to do with individual genetics, so wheras one person can develop pubic hair at 11, another might not until she was 16 or 17.

This brought back a funny memory I thought I'd share:

For what seemed like a long time (although it was probably only a few months) when I was 11 or 12 I had one lone pubic hair that sort of jumped the gun on all the rest and decided to strike out all on its lonesome. I still remember finally taking tweezers to it because I decided it looked stupid down there without any others to keep it company!

Well i think i was about 8 or so when i started to get pubic hair ... it looked kinda weird!! It didn't all come at once, so it looked REALLY funny. I didn't try to pluck it like some others (not naming any names of course) *lol* j/p

When I was in like, fourth or fifth grade I got mine (but I tend to be ahead of everyone else...). I remember not having any, and then I remember having it, but I don't remember an inbetween stage...weird.

There is absolutely no answer to that question. While I first started seeing pubic hairs at 7 or 8, I know a person who didn't have any until they were 12 years old.
