BOYLSTON, Mass. – If you’ve seen the New England PGA tournament schedule for 2019, you’ve probably noticed a new event on the slate as the season kicks off.

The inaugural NEPGA Pro-Pro Blind Draw Scramble, to be played April 18 at the Country Club of Halifax (Halifax, Mass.), promises to provide an exciting and unique day of golf as NEPGA Professionals find their form for the 2019 season.

The blind-draw format adds a twist, and a bit of suspense. Players register for the tournament individually and the four-person teams will be drawn at random during lunch, then head straight to the course for the shotgun start.

Given the nature of the event, it couldn’t come at a better time in the busy NEPGA Tournament schedule. Those who have been hitting into a simulator all winter and those who haven’t swung a club in months will get a chance to tune up their game with a fun 18 holes while connecting with section Professionals they wouldn’t ordinarily play with.

The $100 entry fee includes lunch, carts, and golf on one of the best championship layouts in the Bay State. Registration for the tournament is now open and will close April 11.
