Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Golf Association (NHGA) is happy to announce the newest staff member to join the NHGA, Chris Ingham.  Ingham will fill the Tournament Director role with the NHGA beginning on Monday, January 6.  The NHGA is excited to bring Ingham on board and feels his experience and knowledge of the game will be a great fit.
 
Ingham comes to the NHGA with golf industry experience spanning both Massachusetts and New Hampshire.  Most recently, he served as the Manager of Championships for Mass Golf where his responsibilities included administering Mass Golf Championships, qualifiers, and assisted at USGA qualifiers.  He also managed the Mass Golf Volunteer Appreciation Program and was responsible for the annual Volunteer Appreciation Day.

“Chris brings a wealth of golf administration experience to the NHGA”, says NHGA Executive Director, Matt Schmidt.  “His time as Mass Golf will be invaluable as he takes over the administration of the NHGA’s tournament programs.”
 
“Chris has shown an understanding and recognition of the high-quality tournament experience that we provide to all of our customers and we’re excited to have him join our immensely talented staff. As a native of New Hampshire, he’s familiar with the deep and important golf community within the Granite State and we have no doubt that he will continue the long tradition of top-quality tournament administrators who have worked for the NHGA”, continues Schmidt.
 
Filling the position of Tournament Director that was left vacant for the 2019 season, Ingham will be tasked with administering the NHGA tournament programs, including one-day events, championships and qualifiers.  He will be the point person at the NHGA for inquiries regarding the Rules of Golf, course marking and volunteer recruitment and retention.
