6TH JIMMY ANDERSON SET FOR APRIL 5-6, 2014

     The Jacksonville Country Club Board of Directors has announced the 6th Jimmy Anderson Junior Boys’ Invitational will be played on April 5-6, 2014. This annual junior tournament was created in 2009 to honor Mr. Jimmy Anderson for his service as golf professional at Jacksonville Country Club and his dedication and support of junior golf.

     The event will be a 36-hole stroke play tournament for junior male golfers between the ages of 13 – 18 who have not finished high school. In the past this event has been open to boys and girls, but with the tournament becoming so popular, a second tournament has been created for the girls only. The girls’ event will be held on October 4-5, 2014. The boys’ event will be conducted by the Carolinas Golf Association while the girls’ tournament will be conducted jointly by the Carolinas Golf Association and the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour.

     Jimmy Anderson was the head golf professional at Jacksonville Country Club for over 25 years. Each Saturday morning, he conducted a junior golf clinic to help spread the game of golf to the next generation. During his tenure at Jacksonville CC, he taught many juniors including Mallory Miller, the 1987 N.C. Junior Champion and numerous future collegiate and golf professionals. Not only did he teach the game of golf, but was always there with a helpful word of encouragement to any young golfer.

     An anticipated field of 72 golfers will compete on the George Cobb designed course that opened for play in 1954 and has hosted numerous tournaments, including the Carolinas Golf Association’s 2007 North Carolina Mid-Amateur.
