Bedford, N.H. (August 8, 2019) – The 99th NEPGA Section Championship successfully concluded yesterday at New Hampshire facility, Manchester Country Club. Shawn Warren, PGA (Falmouth CC) was crowned the 2019 NEPGA Champion and is headed to the 2020 PGA Professional National Championship alongside 11 fellow New England PGA professionals who earned qualifying spots yesterday.
Two thousand and nineteen marks only the third time in the event’s history that it was played in New Hampshire, and the first time it was hosted at co-host sites Manchester Country Club and Concord Country Club. The final round was played at Manchester Country Club, a historic Donald Ross layout that was one of the very few viewed by Ross himself after completion. This par-71 course recently underwent a renovation project and hosted the 2017 New Hampshire Open, and is already scheduled to host the 2021 New Hampshire Open Championship and 2023 New Hampshire Amateur Championship.
“Hats off to the NEPGA, MCC staff and membership at MCC for putting on a fantastic event,” said Brian Kelley, general manager of Manchester Country Club. “This was a proud moment for our membership and staff. Our facility was in the finest condition its ever been in, and the team here put everything they had into making it that way for this very special tournament in our region.”
