New Hampshire Golf Hall of Fame Committee Selection Process 

The NHGHOF Committee consists of six members, representing all areas of the state, men and women golfers, allied golf organizations, and avid golf historians. 

Nominees must receive at least two thirds of the votes from the Committee. In the event that no nominee receives two-thirds, the two nominees that have received the most votes will be voted on again by the Committee. If no candidate on the second ballot receives two-thirds of the vote, there will be no inductee for that cycle. The Committee recommends that in a given year, between three and five candidates should be considered. The Committee will have the right to include posthumous candidates and will consider nominations made from the public.

Nominations accepted beginning January 1st and must be received by April 1st.
