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 collective players from all levels of NCAA competing at the same location on a 36-hole layout. There are currently 46 New England colleges and universities as members of the NEIGA.

Blackstone National Golf Club is a public 18 hole, par 72 course designed by Rees Jones. The design utilizes the natural contours of the New England countryside to create a mix of different holes with undulating fairways and greens winding its way through tree lined fairways and various water hazards.

Suffolk's card of 646 was good for 12th, tying Southern Maine, in the field of 19 at Captains Golf Course. Husson took home the crown with just 10 strokes above par finishing 11 points ahead of runner-up Rhode Island College.
