It was back in 1923 that the women members of the Cochecho Country Club in Dover invited women from clubs in other parts of New Hampshire to a tournament. Mrs. A. B. Jenks, of the Manchester Country Club decided to form the New Hampshire Women’s Golf association”.

In 1930, the association decided to go it alone and broke its connection with the State golf association. Their yearly series of golfing meets at members’ courses and annual tournaments continued until the war years, when all activities were suspended because of gasoline rationing and the women’s work in civilian defense and allied war services. Coming back stronger than ever, the association today reflects the nation-wide upsurge of interest in the sport among women.


About the NHWGA

The New Hampshire Women’s Golf Association’s objective is to promote, stimulate, organize, and maintain interest and activity in golf among women in the State of New Hampshire.

During the summer months, weekly tournaments are scheduled each Tuesday at member clubs for the two handicap divisions. The two divisions of players join together in special team competitions five times a year as well. In addition, mixed teams of men and women play 4 tournaments per season. The premier event of the summer is the NHWGA Amateur Championship. We also sponsor the Junior Girls Championship and the Senior, Legend & Classic Championships.


To be eligible for membership in the association, one must have a current USGA handicap index of 40.4 or less, based on at least five 18 hole scores. An individual member must have an established USGA handicap at a member club. Currently there are two divisions for regular Tuesday play. These are “A” (USGA handicap index up to 21.9) and “B” (USGA handicap index 22.0 and up).


NHWGA is proud to award numerous college scholarships each year in addition to supporting the McDonough Scholarship Fund. more info » Tournaments
