Xfinity to Sponsor New Hampshire Open Again in 2019

December 5th, 2018

Concord, NH – As the New Hampshire Open continues to attract some of the top professional and amateur golfers from around the country, the New Hampshire Golf Association’s (NHGA) relationship with Xfinity will continue into 2019.  Xfinity and the NHGA have officially agreed to continue Xfinity’s title sponsorship of the New Hampshire Open for the coming year. 
 
Xfinity has been a strong supporter of the NHGA and the New Hampshire Open, sponsoring the event in 2017 (Manchester Country Club) and 2018 (Stonebridge Country Club) and will once again support the Open as it moves to Keene, New Hampshire next June.  Professional golfers entering the tournament will be vying for a total purse of at least $40,000 thanks, in part, to the generous contribution from Xfinity.
 
NHGA Executive Director, Matt Schmidt states, “It’s with great excitement that we’re able to announce another year of partnership between Xfinity and the NHGA. The support of Ed Gallagher and the entire team at Xfinity has allowed the NHGA to elevate the Open to one of the premier events in New England.
 
“We’ve been able to attract top players from across the country and we look forward to a fantastic championship next year at both Bretwood GC and Keene CC. We value our relationship with Xfinity and look forward to seeing it grow in the years to come”, continues Schmidt.
 
The 2019 tournament will split time between Bretwood Golf Course and Keene Country Club with the championship taking place June 20-22, 2019.  The first day will be contested at Bretwood GC, the second day at Keene CC, and the final day of the 54-hole event will move back to Bretwood GC to crown the champion.
 
Bretwood Golf Course has been the host site for this particular tournament more than 15 times, while Keene Country Club has hosted the event five times.  This will be a unique experience for New Hampshire Open competitors as this is the first time in the tournament’s history that the event is being contested at two separate golf courses.  Both are great championship courses and will provide a tough challenge for all competitors.
 
The New Hampshire Open Championship is one of the longest running golf tournaments in the Granite State, beginning back in 1930.  Played over three days, a field of 156 professional and amateur golfers play 36 holes over two days with the field being cut to the low 40 and ties for the final 18 holes of play on the last day of the competition.
