NEGT History


The New England Golf Tour is dedicated to the memory of Buddy Young, former Tournament Director of the N.E.P.G.A., South African PGA Tour, Boston Bruins Tucker Anthony Classic and the North Atlantic tour. The tour is carried on by Buddy's son, Christopher, Golf Teaching Professional, Georgetown High School Varsity Golf Coach,  and founder of The Honda North Junior Golf Tour.

The NEGT is a Professional and Amateur Mini Tour which was established in 2006 to provide venues for aspiring golfers seeking tournament experience with competitive cash and prize rewards. The foremost objective of its committee will always be to present the competitors with an operation that consistently reflects an appreciation of The Game of Golf by conducting itself in accordance with the rules as laid down by The Game's governing bodies and ensuring that its integrity and traditions are preserved. Every effort will be made at each event to guarantee that the competition is fairly conducted so that a deserving champion is identified.
