About the NHGA Junior Golf Tour
Founded in 1998, the NHGA has strived to create a junior program that creates playing opportunities for players of all skill levels and abilities. Our program is structured to provide opportunites for junior golf development through fair competition, while encouraging proper course etiquette and good sportsmanship through playing and enjoying the game of golf.
The NHGA Junior Tour is supported through the generosity of the Thorpe Family Foundation.
Our tour is currently broken down into two divisions, open to both boys and girls.
Birdie events are open to boys ages 10-12 and girls ages 10-13. Competitors in the Birdie division will participate in 9-hole tournaments throughout the state. This is a great way to get a taste of competitive golf in a welcome and fun atmosphere.
Eagle events are open to boys ages 13-18 and girls ages 14-18. The Eagle division is broken down into Eagle A (ages 15-18) and Eagle B (ages 13-14). Competitors in the Eagle division will participate in 18-hole tournaments. Eagle events are designed for players with some tournament golf experience and are a great way to prepare for middle school, high school, and college golf.
Other Highlights of the NHGA Junior Golf Tour
Our Birdie events are $10 and Eagle events are $20. Each event includes golf and lunch for players after the round. You won’t find a better youth sports deal in The Granite State.
Golf should be fun. The NHGA strives to create a welcoming environment for all players to enjoy their day on the golf course. NHGA staff is present at all events to ensure that the needs of each and every player are being met. We want to create golfers for life.
Make New Friends
Golf is an individual sport, but also forces players to interact with other competitors. Our events are a great way to make new friends on and off the golf course. Participants come from all over the state and range in skill level from beginners to those who have played on the Junior Tour for many years.
All players must pass a Rules and Etiquette quiz prior to their first event. This quiz, plus the on course experience is vital for young golfers as they learn the complexities and intricacies of the game. NHGA staff will be present on course to assist with Rules issues during play.
Play New Courses
Events are held across the state at NHGA Member courses. This gives players the opportunity to play courses that they may not have normally had a chance to experience.
Compete for Prizes
Prizes are awarded at each event. We will also recognize Players of The Year in all of our divisions. Those players will be recognized at the annual NHGA Champions Dinner held each fall.
