The new year brings a two-year collaboration period between the NCGA, the Women’s Golf Association of Northern California (WGANC) and the Pacific Women’s Golf Association (PWGA).
During this time, the NCGA is proud to offer all WGANC and PWGA members full NCGA membership benefits, which include a USGA handicap index, the quarterly NCGA Golf magazine, year-round discounts at
Poppy Hills and Poppy Ridge, access to 500-plus tournament days (including the Weekend Net Tour and NCGA PLAY!) and the newest benefit, NCGA GO.
The three organizations collectively represent a rich history of supporting and promoting the game of golf in Northern California. With that experience as the foundation, all are committed to innovating and improving
member programs and services. Successful collaboration has already begun with joint course ratings. Next steps include expansion of volunteer opportunities and improved training for tournament management, rules
Throughout the collaboration period, all three organizations will be learning a lot about each others’ traditions and history, current benefit offerings and member needs and aspirations. This will help the
collaboration team form principles and programs for a potential combined organization in the future.
