Traveling to Mt. Washington Omni Hotel and Golf Course is a long ride. It is all worth it though. Once you arrive, and step out of the car, you feel a sense of relaxation. The air is crisp, the views are stunning, and the golf course is great. That is what greeted the 29 teams (116 players) that found their way here for a NHC/NEPGA Pro am. We are very fortunate to have facilities like Mt. Washington host our events, it does not go unnoticed. Todays team format is 1 bb gross or 1 bb net.
