The New Hampshire Junior Tournaments are open to boys and girls over 10 and under 18 years of age as of 6-25-13 and not in college. Players must present an established USGA Handicap Index from a New Hampshire member club that uses the NHGA's handicap computation service, GHIN. Note: GHIN Handicap cards may be available to junior players free of charge; contact your local NHGA golf club for details. The NHGA classifies their junior events as either BIRDIE or EAGLE tournaments.

EAGLE tournaments are 18-hole events for 13-17 year old male golfers and 14-17 year old female golfers.
