Take a Swing at Shorter Golf with NCGA PLAY!

We’ve created unique leagues and events that can be played after work and on weekends.

We feel any way you can have fun with a golf club in your hand is a good thing, so we’ve come up with all the different ways you can, whether that’s on a course big or small, or at putting greens and driving ranges.

And we think a beverage always tastes better after a round of golf! (That’s why we’ve included drink tickets with most events.)

NCGA MEMBERS: Join us in Sacramento this Summer and Fall as we explore all of the different ways you can play golf.*

NCGA PLAY! Kick-Off Party

Come check out what NCGA PLAY! is all about, for free! Join us at our Kick-Off Party on Saturday, Aug. 13 at Haggin Oaks.

We’ll have free instruction on the hour, fun mini-games and prizes, a cool giveaway just for showing up, and even putting and driving competitions just like they did when golf was last in the Olympics in 1904! Get your day started with us from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or join us for a nightcap from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.

If you like what you see, you can sign up for any of our events that run through October.
