The National Collegiate Club Golf Association (NCCGA) is the governing body for non-varsity college club golf in the United States. There are more than 300+ college golf club teams at universities and schools across the country, which makes the NCCGA bigger than NCAA in regards to amount of golfers supported. The NCCGA is divided amongst 28 regions across the country, and each region holds two tournaments each semester. Teams participate in an attempt to qualify for the NCCGA National Championship, held once per semester.

What is the NCCGA?
- 2-Day weekend tournaments (Sat/Sun)
- 36-holes (18 each day)
- Typically Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning
- Team & Individual Stroke Play
- Teams bring 5-8 players, with Top 5 scores each day comprising the team score
- Tee time, split-tee, or shotgun depending on tournament size and seasonality
- Tournaments are walking (unless course is un-walkable)

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.
In lead 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.
Running the Tournament
- After the initial booking of the tournaments, all NCCGA events are student run by a leader within the region called the Regional Coordinator (RC), as well as assisted virtually by a member of the Nextgengolf staff.
- The RC will be on-site, and will work closely with the course staff to run a successful event.
- The NCCGA will provide the scoring software, scoreboards, and sponsored prizes.
- The course will provide custom scorecards, space for scoring, wifi, staff support, and a welcoming environment for the participants.
- Staff support from the course is typically a starter and a ranger, to assist in on-time starts and monitoring pace of play.
- The NCCGA will seek out volunteers, but having course staff support is critical to a successful event.
“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 in 2016.”

“The young men who participated in the event, were well mannered, respectful of our course and members. Nextgen did a wonderful job preparing them for the event. We would have them back anytime.”

“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.”
