Play for Charity!Charity

Over the past 40 years, Randy Jones has supported & played in hundreds of charity golf events here in San Diego. In 2012, he made the decision to run his own golf tournament with two goals in mind…
Goal 1: He wanted to involve as many local charities as possible, helping them raise awareness and dollars for their own charity.
Goal 2: He wanted to find the top amateur foursome from all of the charity golf tournaments played in San Diego.

The Randy Jones Invitational has been a huge success with around 1,500 golfers, representing over 200 local charities, that play in Randy’s tournament each year.

In 2015, the Randy Jones Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was established to provide kids from military families the opportunity and resources to get involved in sporting and outdoor activities.

The Randy Jones Invitational now in its 3rd year is the only championship golf tournament of its kind in San Diego and is an invitation only event.
