The NCCGA North region was founded prior to the start of the Spring 2014 season, and includes teams primarily in Wisconsin and from the upper peninsula of Michigan. Since the birth of the Region, Wisconsin (Madison) has dominated, claiming all but two of the Regional Tournament titles. Marquette claimed both Regional Tournament titles in the Fall of 2015. North Regional tournaments are always held at top Wisconsin public golf courses such as Glen Erin Golf Club (Janesville, WI), The Golf Courses of Lawsonia (Green Lake, WI), and Lake Arrowhead Golf Course (Nekoosa, WI). The North Region is now a member of Zone #1. In the spring of 2018, Wisconsin-Madison made its return back to another National Championship at Norwood Hills CC and Wisconsin-Stout being another top contender locally at regionals. Look for Wisconsin and Stout to compete with Marquette come fall of 2018! Wisconsin-Madison and Marquette made the trip to Barefoot Resort in Myrtle Beach to compete for the 2018 Fall National Championship. They both performed well and finished with team scores of 781 and 792 respectively. Look for both teams to challenge for the National Championship again this spring. It was a tight race this spring in the North region as Wisconsin-Madison outlasted Marquette for the regional title. 4 teams from the region made the trip to Indiana for Nationals with Wisconsin-Madison and Marquette both posting top 20 finishes at the National Championship and Wisconsin-Oshkosh and Wisconsin-Stevens Point placing 4th and T10 respectively in the Invitational. Wisconsin continued their dominance in this region as they took the title this past fall and made a return trip to Nationals where they posted at Top 25 finish. Marquette continues to push for the crown and will return a strong team for the spring.
