Benefits of Hosting an NCCGA Tournament
In addition to tournament green fees the weekend of the event, the NCCGA will set up a practice round rate with you to encourage players to visit your course in preparation. Players will also be purchasing food and beverage at the course.
Leading up to NCCGA Regional Tournaments, we promote the host courses through local and national social media accounts. Our national twitter account @NCCGA and instagram account @NCCGA promote the host golf courses to all of our national audience.
The NCCGA will feature courses and also PGA Professionals who are supporting the game. Each host course is also featured on your specific region’s home page View Example

- The student ambassador will be on-site and will work closely to help the golf course staff
The NCCGA Provides
- The NCCGA will provide the scoring software, scoreboards, and sponsored prizes.
The Course Provides

"As the Director of Sales & Marketing I can tell quite a bit about an organization from the initial phone call. I can honestly say that everyone I dealt with from the NCCGA was courteous, professional and most importantly committed to growing the game of golf. It was a very enjoyable process. I hope the NCCGA continues to visit Harborside International and look forward to working with them again."

"I can’t say enough about how enjoyable and easy it was/is to work with this group of golfers. From the beginning, I have been impressed with the club players from Iowa State and it is refreshing to know that the players from other schools are cut from the same cloth. We had no issues throughout the weekend as everything ran extremely smoothly."
