The New England Golf Association (NEGA) announced that the Junior Amateur Championship set to be held at Seekonk’s Ledgemont Country Club in August has been canceled.
“Anytime we have to take away playing opportunities it is a major disappointment. Canceling the New England Junior was not an easy decision, and we know how important this event is to the top junior players in the region. Ultimately, with the guidelines that are in place in New England, we aren’t able to conduct the New England Junior Amateur Invitational in the way that has made it such a popular event. Trying to run the event any other way would be a disservice to the players, families, staff, and volunteers that make it such a wonderful Championship,” said Greg Howell, the NEGA Manager of Operations.
The event was originally scheduled to be held on August 11 and August 12.
The Junior Amateur Championship
The New England Junior Amateur Invitational is an invitational event, with seven boys and three girls from each New England state selected to compete in a 54-hole team and individual stroke play competition.
Currently, the NEGA Junior Amateur is set to be contested in Maine in 2021, with a host course to be determined.
