Everyone Can Play College Golf

Are you teaching lessons to college-aged students or do you have college students working at your facility? If you answered yes to either of these questions, let them know that anyone can play college golf. 

The National Collegiate Club Golf Association (NCCGA), the governing body for collegiate club golf, is the collegiate tour within Nextgengolf. The PGA acquired Nextgengolf, in April, to enhance player development programming that is designed to grow the game across emerging generations.

If you are unfamiliar, Club golf is:

  • Co-ed (men and women play on the same team)
  • Competitive, but fun (scores range from 65-105)
  • Nationally recognized (more then 400 colleges have club golf teams)
  • An outlet for possible walk-ons (varsity coaches pay attention to club golf tournament scores)
  • Flexible - 2-3 weekend tournaments per semester. Students can focus on school and get involved in many clubs and activities
