Since its founding in 1960, the Southeastern Amateur Championship has grown to become
one of the premier amateur golf tournaments in Massachusetts. Past champions include
Allen Doyle, holder of two US Senior Open Championships and former PGA tour card holders,
Dr. Bill Mallon, Dave Marad, David O'Kelly and Peter Teravanien. Dubbed the championship
of working men by tournament co-founder Roger Barry, the players compete for MGA
Player of the Year points in this final significant event of the season on the Massachusetts
2016 TOURNAMENT RECAP
The 57th playing of the Southeastern Amateur Championship concluded on Sunday,
October 9 with not a shot fired thanks to the remnants of Hurrican Matthew at the drenched Cohasset Golf Club.
Herbie Aikens of Pine Hills, with quality rounds of 68 at Easton Country Club at 69 at Marshfield Country Club was declared the victor by two shots over Patrick DiBartoli of the Country Club of New Bedford.
Atkins owns a sterling resume. His victory over a deep and talented field concluded another fine year. He will next play for Team Massachusetts in the Annual Tri-State Match against Rhode Island and Connecticut.
Steve Tasho won the Senior Division (70-72, 142), Dave Pomarico the Super Senior (74-75, 152), and Thorny Lea the team: Steve Tasho (142), John Hadges (144), and Steve Tasho, Jr. (145).
Despite the disappointment of not playing Cohasset, which has been beautifully restored, the players did enjoy two picture perfect days for scoring at Easton Country Club and Marshfield Country Club.
Next year's Championship will be played October 6-8 at Easton Country Club, Thorny Lea Golf Club and Wollaston Golf Club.
