Agawam Hunt to Host 64th New England Women’s Amateur
The New England Golf Association (NEGA) announced that the 64th New England Women’s Amateur Championship will be held at Agawam Hunt.
The NEGA also announced that the New England Amateur Championship will be held in Connecticut and the Senior Amateur will take place at Manchester Country Club in Vermont.
“The depth of championship-caliber golf courses across New England is always on display, and we think this year’s NEGA slate will also demonstrate the variety of courses across the region. These three venues are each incredibly unique, and it’s not often we can make a schedule announcement that boasts three clubs founded in three different centuries. We are thrilled to return to Agawam Hunt and Manchester Country Club and equally excited to add Great River Golf Club to the list of prestigious clubs that have hosted the New England Amateur,” said Greg Howell, NEGA Manager of Operations.
The Women’s Amateur will take place from June 28 to June 30.
Agawam Hunt, located in East Providence, Rhode Island, will host its first NEGA Championship since the 2002 New England Junior Invitational.
Originally founded as a nine-hole course in 1895, Agawam’s first 18-hole course was designed by Donald Ross in 1920 and has undergone numerous restorations in the years since.
Agawam hosted the New England Women’s Amateur in 1997, when Donna Glazer of Massachusetts won her first title.
