It is a Northeast Amateur tradition to offer our contestants housing for the tournament week. If you would like private housing with a Host Family please indicate such when you register or contact the committee no later than June 1st to guarantee availability. The committee will provide accommodations in private homes from Sunday thru Saturday. You will be connected with your host approximately one week prior to the start of the tournament. Private housing is generally reserved for Contestants Only.
The tournament committee will provide transportation from T.F. Green Airport (PVD) upon request. The airport is about 15 minutes from Wannamoisett Country Club and is the best option if traveling by air.
