About

The Fall 2017 National Championship is headed to the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, where 224 of the top club golfers across the country will test their skills on the top Snow Mountain and Wolf courses. The Las Vegas Paiute Resort courses are ranked in the best courses you can play in Vegas. The Paiute Resort plays host to numerous state and regional championships each year.

The championship will feature 27 of the best club golf teams, as well as 8 individuals representing their schools. The tournament will be a 2-day, 36-hole team and individual stroke play event. The University of Georgia took home both the Spring 2017 & Fall 2016 championships in dominant fashion. Who will emerge on top this year in Vegas?

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