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 NCAA Divisions I, II, III and Club competing at the same location on a 36-hole layout. Thirty-seven New England colleges and universities competed in the 2015 fall championship hosted at The Captains Golf Course in Brewster, Mass.
Division I Bryant University, under the leadership of Head Coach Charlie Blanchard, shot a two-day total of 608 to win the overall championship. They were eight strokes better than runner-up Central Connecticut St. University. Southern New Hampshire University took the Division II title with a score of 609, besting Bentley University by four shots. Rhode Island College repeated as Division III Champions with a two-day total of 618, six better than runner-up Salem State.
Bentley's Malcolm Oliver overcame a 5-shot deficit after day 1 by shooting a closing round 67 (142) to become the first repeat medalist since Jim Hallet won three times in the 1980's.
