NCCGA Past National Champions
Fall Nationals – Myrtle Beach, SC
Our National Partner Play Golf Myrtle Beach helped bring Fall 2018 NCCGA Nationals to the beaches of South Carolina. Barefoot resort and its four courses hosted the National Championship and National Invitational, keeping all the players at one site!
Barefoot Resort is an absolute beast, with four courses designed by famous architects and golfers Pete Dye, Greg Norman, Tom Fazio, and Davis Love. The Championship was held on the Dye and Love courses, which provided very different golf experiences. Golf Academy of America – Myrtle Beach, was able to turn an early day one lead into their first ever National Championship victory.
Ian Martin from the University of Michigan won the individual title. His scores of 67-74 were good enough to win by two over Ben Frazzini of Minnesota. Martin rattled off six straight birdies to end his first round, and he never looked back., bringing him back from a seven stroke deficit following day one. Congratulations to GAA – Myrtle and Ian Martin for a fantastic tournament!
