The NHGA and the game of golf are lucky to have him.”

Arvanitis, a Manchester native who plays out of Derryfield Country Club was surprised by the honor. “No I didn’t see it coming,” he said. “Matt  (Schmidt) and Joe (Kane, NHGA Board President) wanted to meet me. I thought they were going to offer me a job.”
“To have my name up there with the likes of (past Honorees) Rich Parker, Kirk Hannefeld, Craig Steckowych, Phil Pleat , Bobby Mielcarz, and Jimmy Sheerin, guys I grew up with, competed against and respected immensely is quite an honor for me,” said Arvanitis.
