New Hampshire Amateur Championship - July 11th - 16th - Laconia Country Club
Laconia Country Club will host the 113th State Amateur in July, where 144 of the best players in the state will compete for the sixty-four spots in the match play bracket. Connor Greenleaf was the 2015 Champion at Mount Washington Restort GC. Laconia CC last hosted the State Amateur in 2004. This will mark the 7th time Laconia CC has hosted the Championship since 1930. Qualifers for 2016 will be held at Windham CC, Nashua CC, Lochmere Golf & CC, Breakfast Hill GC, North Conway CC, Hanover CC, and Waukewan GC. 
New Hampshire Open Championship - July 27th - 29th - Owl's Nest Resort & Golf Club
The New Hampshire Open will return to Owl's Nest Resort & GC for the third consecutive year, but will see a format chance for 2016. The tournament will now be three-days long with a cut after two days and thirty-six holes instead of the 18-hole cut used in previous years. In 2015 Grayson Murray took home the trophy and the $5,500 1st place check after scorching the golf course for all three rounds. Ryan Kohler defeated Joe Leavitt in a playoff for Low Amateur honors. 
Mid-Amateur Championship - September 29th-October 1st - Lake Sunpaee Country Club

The fifty-four hole Mid-Amateur Championship will be held at Lake Sunapee Country Club as the event will return to the traditional Thursday-Saturday schedule with a cut to the low 27 players after thirty-six holes. Ryan Kohler ended Brett Wilson's bid for three consecutive Mid-Amateur Championships when he took home the honors in 2015 at Stonebridge Country Club. Lake Sunapee last hosted the Mid-Amateur in 2004 when Phil Pleat was victorious. 
 
Stroke Play Championship - August 8th-10th - Beaver Meadow Golf Course
New Hampshire's only seventy-two hole stroke play event will be in the state capital in August as Beaver Meadow GC will host the event for the 1st time. James Pleat took home Champion honors in 2015 after holding off an incredible comeback effort from 2014 Champion Joe Leavitt. Beaver Meadow is just the third golf course to host in the seventeen-year history of the event. 
Senior Championship - September 6th & 7th - Montcalm Golf Club
The Senior Championship will be heading to Enfield, NH for Montcalm GC's first NHGA Championship. Bob Mielcarz was the Champion in 2015 at Kingswood GC, ending Phil Pleat's incredible run of Senior Championships. The 2016 version of the thirty-six hole Championship should be incredibly competitive as many of the players will have seen the host club only a handful of times. 
Junior Championship - June 27th-29th - Concord Country Club
Concord Country Club is back on the Championship schedule for the first time since hosting the New Hampshire Amateur in 2012. The club will be familiar to some of the junior players, as it was the host of the 2014 NHIAA Division 1 Golf Championship. 2015 NHGA Junior Player of the Year Brandon Gillis will look to defend his title at Concord in the three-day event. The top sixteen players from the stroke play portion will advance to the Championship Flight of match play.

Chelso Barrett and Tim Manwaring were victorious in 2015 playing Canterbury Woods CC & Owl's Nest. 
Senior Match Play Championship - August 29th-31st - Country Club of New Hampshire
The Senior Match Play Championship is a new event for 2016 modeled after the Junior Championship. 72 players will play for the top 48 spots in flighted match play.
