Live Life. Play Golf.

Our Story

Nextgengolf was founded by Kris Hart in 2010. The company originated as a Boston-based affordable golf membership program for recreational college students called CollegeGolfPass, which helped make golf more affordable for college students. The company expanded nationwide after merging with The National Collegiate Club Golf Association (NCCGA) in 2013. In the first year of the merger, the company started 100+ new club golf programs and supported over 10,000 student golfers. Prior to Nextgengolf taking over the NCCGA, our COO Matt Weinberger built the NCCGA into a true National organization while he was a college student in 2012 and 2013.

Over the next two years college golfers kept coming to us saying “thanks for all the help in college”, but kept asking “what do I do now” after graduating college. CollegeGolfPass and NCCGA rebranded as Nextgengolf in January 2014, knowing we could help graduating college golfers. As a result, in 2014 we developed the Nextgengolf City Tour which provides team-based golfing opportunities for young adults in their 20’s and 30’s near major cities.

Between the NCCGA and City Tour, Nextgengolf is the leading entity for golfers in their 20’s and 30’s in the US. At the core of our organization we run great golf tournaments and are in the golf experience business. Beyond running great events, we work hard to provide meaningful content and information to young adults and the golf industry at large. Our organization does not focus on the best golfers, rather we support “the rest” and care about the future sustainability of golf.

In 2017, the leadership at Nextgengolf started The National High School Golf Association, a initiaitve focused on the growth and development of high school golf. Check out our sister site to learn more.

As of April 1, 2019, Nextgengolf was acquired by the PGA of America. Read the press release

Brand Ambassadors

Student Advisory Group

At the core of the NCCGA is our Student Advisory Group. The group has 4-5 members, each with slightly different responsibilities and goals. Annually, students are elected to the group as the highest level of leadership in our organization. Learn more

The NCCGA has brand ambassadors called "Regional Ambassadors" who are student representatives in 29 regions across the country that volunteer their time to help out at NCCGA events. These students help the on-site golf course staff make the experience of club golf amazing. When you see one of these girls or guys at a tournament, say thank you for their service and help volunteering!
