Concord, NH –The premier amateur golf championship in the state of New Hampshire now has a site for the next four years. Bretwood Golf Course will host the 2017 New Hampshire Amateur Championship July 10th – 15th, 2017. NHGA Executive Director Matt Schmidt made the announcement today.

“We have our state championship in a great position for the future with the host sites we have in the next four years” Schmidt said. Before going to Bretwood in 2017 the event will be at Laconia Country Club in 2016, followed by Abenaqui Country Club and Portsmouth Country Club in 2018 and 2019 respectively.

“Bretwood is a great test for the best amateurs in the state. There’s a lot we can do as far as setup with the golf course to make it a great championship. The NHGA appreciates the efforts of the Barrett family and the staff at Bretwood for all that they have done to make this happen.  We are also thrilled to be returning to Keene, which is a great golfing town and has always been very supportive of the NHGA.”

The New Hampshire Amateur Championship is conducted every year by the New Hampshire Golf Association.  It is open to any player who holds an active NHGA GHIN handicap of 12.0 or lower.  There are seven 18-hole qualifiers held across the state in advance of the Championship proper.  156 players then compete in a 36-hole stroke play qualifier, with the low-64 players advancing to the match play portion of the event. 

The New Hampshire Golf Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to fostering the ideals and traditions of the game of golf in New Hampshire.  The NHGA was established in 1905 to foster, promote, conserve and administer the game of golf in the State of New Hampshire, as embodied in its ancient and honorable tradition. This includes handicapping, scholarships, tournaments, promotion of Junior Golf, and promotion of the Rules of Golf and any other activity reasonably related to the foregoing. For more information on the NHGA, visit
