About the Championship

The NCCGA National Championship is club golf’s staple event capping off each fall and spring season. Past national championship sites include Pinehurst, Firestone Country Club, Barefoot Golf Resort, TPC San Antonio, The Homestead and Sea Island just to name a few. The Fall 2016 National Championship is headed to Walt Disney World Resort, where 256 of the top club golfers against the country will test their skills on the Palm and Magnolia Courses. The same courses that hosted the Walt Disney World Golf Classic on the PGA Tour, an event won by golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods (among others).

The Fall 2016 NCCGA National Championship will feature 30 of the best club golf teams, as well as 16 individuals representing their schools. The tournament will be a 2-day, 36-hole team and individual stroke play event. The University of South Carolina took home the Spring 2016 championship in dominant fashion, and NC State’s Zac Lewis set a new championship record in route to earning medalist honors. Who will emerge on top this year in Orlando?

The National Championship highlights firsthand how much #clubgolf loves this game. Learn about past National Champions here.
