9th Anderson Boys' set for April 1-2, 2017

 
The Jacksonville Country Club Board of Directors and the Carolinas Golf Association have announced the dates for the eight annual Jimmy Anderson Boys’ Invitational 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 from North Carolina and South Carolina between the ages of 13 – 18 who have not finished high school.  The tournament will be contested April 1-2, 2017 at Jacksonville Country Club in Jacksonville, NC.  Registration opens for exempt players on Monday, February 6th at 8m and opens for non-exempt players on Wednesday, February 22nd at 8 pm.
 
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 84 junior golfers from across the Carolinas 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.  This year’s event will be conducted by the Carolinas Golf Association.
