Concord, NH –  The New Hampshire Golf Association (NHGA) made an exciting announcement last week as they added the Stroke Play Series to the 2017 Tournament Schedule.  The purpose of the Stroke Play Series is to provide more competitive playing opportunities, outside of the regular NHGA championships, for the low handicap golfers throughout the state.
The Stroke Play Series is targeted towards players with a handicap of 12.0 and lower.   Each Stroke Play Series event will be an 18-hole round played at different courses around the state. Each event will offer a Regular and Senior division, prizes will be awarded and those participating will have the opportunity to earn Player of the Year & Tri-State Team points.
NHGA Tournament Director, Greg Howell, expressed his excitement for the new additions to the schedule saying, “We have a steadfast desire to add playing opportunities to New Hampshire golfers of all ages and abilities.  The Stroke Play Series will be an excellent opportunity for the top players in the Granite State to compete and earn Player of the Year points in addition to prizes.”
This year’s Stroke Play Series will have four events spanning from May to September.  The Series will kick off at Green Meadow Golf Club on May 25th followed by Loudon Country Club on June 15th, Sky Meadow Country Club on July 24th and concluding with Kingswood Golf Club on September 18th.  Each event is just $60 to play and anyone interested in playing should sign up online through the New Hampshire Golf Association Tournament Registration page.
The NHGA will continue to conduct the Tournament Series which are events open to golfers of all ability levels with no restriction on handicap index.  The Tournament Series will be visiting Wentworth by the Sea on May 6th, Lake Sunapee Country Club on June 22nd, and Concord Country Club on October 29th.
