Our Mission

The NHWGA Charitable Foundation is operated exclusively to provide funding and other financial support through scholarships, subsidies and grants to the youth and other qualified individuals of New Hampshire and to affiliate with other non-profit organizations whose objectives are similar to ours.

With Your Help

Your gift to the NHWGA Charitable Foundation will allow us to continue our commitment to the NHWGA Junior Championship Tournament and to continue our scholarship program for college age girls interested in continuing their affiliation with the sport of golf.

Please consider donating to our scholarship foundation.


The New Hampshire Women’s Golf Association Scholarship program was initiated in 1970. This scholarship program is open to NHWGA members or a female relative of a member and must be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate degree program at an accredited college or university.

In addition, the Jean E. Lyons Memorial Scholarship is open to a female golfer who is a resident of the State of New Hampshire or a playing member of a NH golf club and is pursuing higher education at an accredited college or university.


Junior Girls Golf

One of the goals of the NHWGA is to encourage junior girls to play golf, build character and learn good sportsmanship, by providing them with positive experiences through competitive and educational event. It is our hope to promote the honor and integrity of the game to all who aspire to play, while preserving the traditions of golf.

The NHWGA Junior Girls Championship is held each year and is open to all junior girls from ages 5 to 17.
