The New England Intercollegiate Golf Association (NEIGA) is a non-profit organization, which was first organized in 1934 at the Oakley Country Club in Watertown, Massachusetts. NEIGA is believed to be the largest gathering of collegiate players from different NCAA Divisions competing at the same location on a 36-hole layout. Thirty-eight New England colleges and universities competed in the 2018 fall championship hosted at The Captains Golf Course in Brewster, Mass.
