What Our Members Love About the NCGA:
Playing with an Official USGA Handicap
The USGA handicap system helps us enjoy golf more. The beauty of the handicap is you don’t have to be good to have one — our average member is a 14 — but it helps if you set up friendly and competitive games with someone. We also love the handicap because it actually projects your current golf potential. (You only shoot your handicap once every five times. If you’re doing it more, then guess what? You’re getting better!)
Tournaments and Events for Everyone
Want to chase records set by World Golf Hall of Famers Johnny Miller and Ken Venturi? We’ve got championships for you on PGA Tour courses Spyglass Hill and Poppy Hills in Pebble Beach. Not quite at that level? We’ve got team and individual handicapped tournaments, plus special one-day events at private clubs and resorts throughout Northern California. See more at Tournament Central.
Special Member Rates at Poppy Hills and Poppy Ridge
The NCGA owns two courses — Poppy Hills in Pebble Beach and Poppy Ridge in Livermore Wine Country. That means our members can take advantage of exclusive rates at both. Poppy Hills is a PGA Tour and Champions Tour venue that earned 2014’s Best U.S. Renovation, as well as a spot on Golf Digest’s Best U.S. Golf Pubs list. NCGA members also have access to preferred tee times in the heart of Livermore Wine Country at Poppy Ridge.
Supporting Junior Golf
Every membership funds a round of golf for a junior. Pretty cool, right? For 10 years, the NCGA’s Youth on Course has been making golf affordable for kids in Northern California. Today there are more than 180 courses in Northern California where Youth on Course members can play for $5 or less. The NCGA and NCPGA also support the Junior Tour of Northern California, a year-round junior golf tour that has grown to 27 events and boasts former Player of the Year and current PGA Tour pro Bryson DeChambeau as a proud alum.
Discovering Northern California Golf
Did you know there are as many golf courses in Northern California (400) as all of Ireland? The NCGA helps you figure out where to play with its comprehensive golf course directory, as well as how to play with its library of resources covering the Rules of Golf, the USGA handicap and its quarterly NCGA Golf magazine.
