This year, the Friends of UNH Hockey Golf Tournament will be held at 2 prestigious golf courses-The Golf Club of New England and Portsmouth Country Club.
The Golf Club of New England is an Arnold Palmer designed course situated on 450 acres of beautiful farm land. His expertise was enlisted and applied throughout the design of this course. Each hole uniquely takes advantage of the natural setting through large wooded areas, old stone walls, fields lined with giant oak trees and flowing streams. The Golf Club of New England is a premier private club. Ray Bourque, who holds his annual charity golf tournament there, says “It is the best kept secret of New England Golf. This course has been chosen by the USGA as the site of the 2012 US Junior Amateur Championship and will be the first USGA championship hosted in the State of New Hampshire. Go to their website www.GolfClubne.com and get a view of each hole you will be playing. The Golf Club of New England is extremely excited about the opportunity to be one of the courses hosting the Friends of UNH Hockey Golf Tournament.
Portsmouth Country Club will again host the Friends of UNH Hockey Tournament. Considered a championship golf course designed by the famous Robert Trent Jones, it is located on and bordered by the breathtaking beauty of Great Bay. It is consistently ranked as one of the best in New England. The Portsmouth County Club was established in 1901 by a group of Portsmouth men who wanted to have a place of their own to play golf. When in the 1950’s the US Government decided to build a bomber base in New Hampshire, they took the property by eminent domain forcing the club to find a new location. The original course is now the Pease Golf Course. The present property was bought for $40,000 and the 18 hole golf course was built in 1956. It hosts the annual Portsmouth County Club Junior golf camp and is a beautiful coastal masterpiece. You may view this exquisite Golf Course at www.portsmouthcc.net.
