The Jacksonville Country Club Board of Directors and the Carolinas Golf Association have announced the dates for the tenth 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 14-15, 2018 at Jacksonville Country Club in Jacksonville, N.C.

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.
