10 Reasons Why I Love Club Golf

Club golf is the perfect opportunity to play competitive golf in college without having the same time commitment as varsity golf. Through club golf you will meet lifelong friends and enjoy competing against many cool people all across the country.

Inner city schools like ours often don’t have the space to build large facilities to attract and retain students. The golf club has been that selling point/retention tool at a fraction of the cost. Our students,faculty,staff and admissions department thanks you for that!

After leaving a varsity program and transferring to Saint Louis University, I was fearful that my golf career was over. The NCCGA and Nextgen have allowed me to compete at a high level and continue my golf career for years to come

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the NCCGA?

The NCCGA (National Collegiate Club Golf Association) is the governing body for non-varsity college golf.

Who is eligible to compete?

Any full-time college  student (undergraduate and graduate students included) that is an amateur and NOT on an NCAA varsity golf team. There is no age limit to participate in the NCCGA. Full-time status depends on what your school classifies as full-time.

What is the tournament format?

NCCGA tournaments are 2-day, 36-hole stroke-play events. Students participate as teams of 5-8, or as individuals if their school doesn’t have a participating club team. More details here.

What do the scores look like in the NCCGA?

NCCGA tournament scores range from below par to 100. All swings are welcome!

How many players are on a team?

A club team can bring 5 to 8 players to a tournament. The top 5 scores each day count towards the team score. A club team can also elect to have an “A” and “B” team, which would be a minimum of 10 players (5 on each) and a maximum of 16 (8 on each).

Clubs often have 30+ members on campus (some even have 100+), including many recreational players as well.

What are the costs?

NCCGA club teams pay two costs to participate in a semester.

  1. Team dues
    1. Team dues are $300 per semester and cover the entire team. New teams, however, pay a reduced team due of $150 their first semester participating.
    2. To compete as an individual, without a team, the dues are $30 per tournament and are added into the individual tournament cost.
  2. Tournament fees
    1. The NCCGA runs two tournaments per semester in each region, and the tournaments cost between $70-$110 per player for both rounds. Individuals pay the same price plus the $30 due built in.

What benefits does a team/student receive?

Club golf teams and all individual students that are members of the NCCGA receive discounts at local golf courses, discounts on equipment and apparel, job/internship opportunities, network events, as well as golf swag at each tournament.

What do we receive with our tournament fee?

The tournament fee includes 36-holes of tournament golf, range balls (in most cases), golf cart (if tournament is a riding event), a sleeve of Srixon golf balls, snacks, tees, ball markers, and more!

Does the NCCGA help with fundraising?

Yes! Nextgengolf has its own fundraising platform (think: Kickstarter) for NCCGA teams that allows friends, family, alumni, etc. to contribute directly to the team. Our sponsors have even stepped up to provide products the contributors can choose to receive. Learn more information about the platform here.

In addition we have additional resources if your club would like additional ideas or help running their own fundraising event. These include: bake sales, silent auctions, profit-share with local restaurant, and more.

How big is the NCCGA?

The NCCGA involves more than 250 active club golf teams and 10,000 students across the country.

Where are the tournaments located?

The country is divided into regions run by student Regional Coordinators.  The Regional Coordinator runs and coordinates two tournaments each semester. Regions are designed to minimize travel as much as possible for club teams. Which region would your school play?

When is the National Championship?

The spring NCCGA National Championship occurs in late April, and the fall National Championship occurs in early November. The best teams and individuals across the country qualify each semester. Qualifying procedure.

How do I sign-up?

Fill out a prospective team form and our leadership team will explain how we can help you start a club golf team on campus.

What if my school doesn't have a club team?

The NCCGA can help you through the process of starting a club golf team at your school. Everything from registering through club sports, recruiting players, and funding opportunities.

Students also have the option to compete in our tournaments as individuals if their school doesn’t have a club team participating.

What if I am a recreational golfer?

Nextgengolf is developing recreational golf events for those not ready to compete in NCCGA competitive tournaments. You can also still join your school’s club team and enjoy the access to course and product discounts.

Does the NCCGA run summer events?

The NCCGA does not run any summer events. However, our sister tour the “City Tour” is a summer tour for 18-34 year olds in cities across the country. Similar to the NCCGA, the “City Tour” is team-based and hosts weekend tournaments throughout the summer. Learn more about the City Tour.
