WEST END, N.C. -- The Camden Country Club Board of Directors has announced the inaugural Creed Junior Boys’ Invitational to honor the late Jimmy Creed of Camden for his support of junior golf at the Camden Country Club. 
The tournament will be contested on May 25-26 at the Camden Country Club.
The event will be a 36-hole stroke play tournament for junior boy golfers between the ages of 13 through 18 who have not finished high school. There will be divisions for players ages 13-14, 15-16 and 17-18. Trophies will be awarded to the overall boys’ champion and the top three places in each division.
Creed passed away in October of 2012 and was one of the most popular and well-thought of members at the Camden Country Club. 
“He loved kids and was very supportive of the junior golfers at the club,” said Camden CC head professional Matt McCarley. 
“He was a former junior champion here at the club and made it to the semifinals of the CGA Four-Ball championship.” 
Proceeds from the tournament will go to a scholarship foundation to help children in Kershaw County. 
 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 regularly rated in the top 25 of South Carolina golf courses.
 An anticipated field of 72 junior golfers will compete on the course which has hosted numerous tournaments including the Carolinas Four-Ball, South Carolina Amateur Championships, South Carolina Amateur Match Play Championships, Carolinas Senior Championship, South Carolina Junior Match Play Championships and many other prestigious amateur and professional events.
 The tournament will be conducted by the Carolinas Golf Association.
