The cost to compete in the NCCGA for one semester is as follows: $450 team dues and then the per person tournament fees (which range from $70-$115). Those are the only costs charged by the NCCGA. This means a club golf team that sends 8 people to a tournament would pay $1400-$1900 (or $175-$240 a person)
A student playing as an individual would pay the $65 dues and then the per person tournament fees.
The majority of club teams receive funding assistance through the school, as well as institute a dues structure for the club. This means a student might not pay anything, or might pay a team $100 dues to join the club and that covers all their expenses.
Other costs clubs must consider: lodging, travel, team gear (if applicable), practice time, etc. The NCCGA usually recommends club teams set a budget of $1,500-$2,500 for a semester. This provides extra money for travel expenses, and leaves room for team polos (for example).
