Northeast Amateur


The Northeast Amateur Invitational is considered a ‘major’ in amateur golf, and is ranked #4 of the U.S. amateur golf events of more than 700 events ranked by the R&A World Amateur Ranking List. It is the only 72 hole amateur event played in twosomes, and has been given the name of “Masters of Amateur Golf” by a noted senior golf writer. The tournament began in 1962 and was played as a 54 hole event until 1968. Currently the tournament is conducted over 72 holes of stroke play, with a cut after 54 holes. The field consists of top amateur players throughout the world and is limited to 84 players, by invitation only.  The Northeast Amateur celebrated 50 years of success commemorated by the 50th Anniversary Book. The book is dedicated to the members of Wannamoisett Country Club in gratitude for their unwavering support of the Northeast Amateur Invitational Golf Tournament for the past 50 years.
