The New Hampshire Golf Hall of Fame is dedicated to the preservation of golf’s history in the Granite State. It is a way to honor deserving men and women who have made an impact on golf in New Hampshire either through amateur golf achievements, professional golf accomplishments, or contributions to the game in a non-playing capacity.
