About

The National Invitational Tournament launched in the Fall of 2017, hosted at the Paiute Golf Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Clemson University took home the trophy and earned an automatic bid to the Spring 2018 National Championship.

This season’s NIT will take place farther east in St. Louis, MO. The pristine private facility Bogey Hill Country Club will play host to 120 club golfers (14 teams and 8 individuals). With a fully re-built clubhouse that will be finished just before the Spring 2018 National Invitational, this facility will follow the likes of Hot Springs Country Club as another great private country club to host Nationals.

“Bogey Hills Country Club is looking forward to hosting the NCCGA National Invitational. Our course is ready to test some of the best club golfers in the country.” – Denny Walters Jr., Tournament Coordinator/Teaching Professional
