Camden CC to host 4th Creed Boys' Invitational

The Camden Country Club Board of Directors has announced the dates for the 4th Creed Junior Boys’ Invitational to honor Mr. Jimmy Creed of Camden, SC for his support of junior golf at Camden Country Club.  The event will be a 36-hole stroke play tournament for junior boy golfers between the ages of 13 – 18 who have not finished high school.  It will be contested on May 28-29, 2016 at Camden Country Club in Camden, SC.
 
Mr. Creed passed away in October of 2012 as one of the most popular and well thought of members at Camden Country Club.  “He loved kids and was very supportive of the junior golfers at the club,” said Camden CC head professional Matt McCarley.  McCarley added, “He was a former junior champion here at the club and made it to the semi finals of the CGA four ball championship.”  Proceeds from the tournament will go to a scholarship foundation to help local kids. 
 
Located in historic Camden, South Carolina's oldest inland city, the Camden Country Club was chartered in 1899 as a place "for golf, polo and other athletic sports" and established in 1903.  Camden Country Club is considered one of South Carolinas distinguished private clubs. Camden Country Club golf course was re-designed in the late 1920's by the renowned golf course designer/architect, Donald Ross. The course was revamped to a more traditional Ross design in 2012 by Kris Spence. The par 70 golf is a challenging 6,455 yards from the "tips," and is always rated in the top 25 of South Carolina golf courses.
 
An anticipated field of 84 golfers will compete on the Donald Ross designed course that has hosted numerous tournaments, including the Carolinas Four Ball, SC Amateur Championship, SC Amateur Match Play Championship, Carolinas Senior Championship, Carolinas Junior Championship, SC Junior Match Play Championship and many other prestigious amateur and professional events.
