Why does NHGA Membership Matter?
The New Hampshire Golf Association is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that supports and upholds the ancient and honorable traditions of the game of golf in New Hampshire. Since its inception in 1905, the NHGA has served as the governing body of golf in the Granite State. Our role and importance to the game of golf has continued to evolve since that time.
While conducting Championships is a large part of what we do, the NHGA serves the game in many different ways:
Did you know the NHGA:
- is headquarted in dowtown Concord and employs a full-time staff of five
- annually gives back more than $150,000 to the game of golf in New Hampshire
- conducts the NHGA Junior Golf Tour which provides playing opportunities for young players of all skill levels
- provides handicapping support and maintenance to more than 100 member facilities and 18,000 individual members
- has a dedicated volunteer base that helps out each year not only at tournaments, but also course rating, marking, and measuring
- works closely with the NHWGA, The First Tee of New Hampshire, and McDonough Scholarship Foundation to foster and grow the game of golf in the Granite State
