About the Jimmy Self Invitational


Named in honor of a man who gave so much to golf, the Jimmy Self Invitational was originally one of the top high school tournaments in South Carolina and has now become one of the SCJGA’s major junior championships. The 54-hole event has been presented by Greenwood Development since its inception. The original idea was to rotate the tournament’s location between Greenwood Development properties in Charleston, Greenwood and Hilton Head Island. This year’s competition at Palmetto Dunes continues the Jimmy Self Invitational’s legacy, adding to South Carolina’s rich history of amateur and junior golf.
