The New England Golf Tour is dedicated to the memory of Buddy Young.
He was the Tournament Director of The New England PGA and the South African PGA Tour. Recognized internationally as an authority on the Rules of Golf, he believed that tournaments should operate under two basic principles: (1), that the competition be fairly contested, so that a deserving champion may be identified and, (2), that the traditions and the integrity of the Game are preserved.
Tournaments are open to the first 18 Professionals and the first 12 Amateurs to enter. Professionals play in 6 groups of three and play for a cash purse. Entry fees are $175 for Professionals and $75 for Amateurs. 100% of Pro entry fees goes to the purse after course costs, ($25 cart fee). 1/3 of the field gets paid, with last place money at least equal to the entry fee. 1st place is $1,000 for the first three events with a field of 18 Professionals. $1,250 is 1st place is for the Tour Championship, with 18 Professionals. The Amateur field is combined with the 12 playing sponsors to total an Amateur field of 24 players. There are gross and net prizes for the Amateurs and a skins pool for both Pros and Amateurs.
Players competing in previous years will have first refusal to enter events.
The New England Golf Tour handles registration, starting, rulings and scoring with over 50 combined years of experience within its staff. Every effort will be made to conduct the competition fairly so that a deserving champion may be identified.
