The Fall 2019 National Invitational heads to Oklahoma for the first time and will bring region winners and wild card teams and players from across the country together to compete. Dornick Hills Country Club will host the Invitational on its Perry Maxwell designed course (also designed Colonial CC & Prairie Dunes). The winner of the National Invitational will receive an automatic bid to the Spring 2020 National Championship!
The National Invitational is a 2-day, 36-hole stroke play event. On the same weekend, WinStar Golf Club in Thackerville, OK will host the National Championship.
Why Dornick Hills?
Recently, NCCGA Nationals has visited the Midwest (Indiana and St. Louis), the East Coast (Disney and Myrtle Beach), and the West (Las Vegas). We picked Dornick Hills because it’s in a unique area and will be a totally new experience for many of the players.
Dornick Hills is one of the oldest golf clubs in Oklahoma, and was the first club in the state to become affiliated with the USGA. The club also hosted a PGA TOUR event called the Ardmore Open from 1952-1954 and the LPGA Ardmore Open in 1954. Dornick also hosts many state and local competitive events and qualifiers.
7:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Tournament participants are able to schedule practice rounds up to a week before the Invitational. Practice round will be booked directly with the NCCGA. Practice rounds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and are subject to availability. Teams and individuals are recommended to book practice rounds ASAP to ensure availability. There is a Friday shotgun available for all participants at $40 per round.
Registration & Careers in Golf
Players will meet at the WinStar Resort and Casino driving range from 2-5PM for pre-championship registration and the Careers in Golf networking event. Players will have a chance to meet with some of the best companies in golf like the PGA of America, Topgolf and the USGA!
Rapsodo will be running a long drive contest with their launch monitors. Other contests, gift bag pick up, team photos, grand raffle, free range balls, and free food will all happen during Careers in Golf.

Pairings and hole assignments will be generated and distributed based on Saturday’s performance. Times are also dependent on weather delays which could result in a later finishing time. Any groups needing to leave early will receive double par for any unfinished holes. An awards ceremony with trophy presentation will follow the round.
