Golf Since 1901
The NCGA’s roots date back to April 5, 1901 when five clubs banded together with the sole purpose of participating in the prestigious Pacific Coast Amateur Championship.
In 1966, the NCGA, originally headquartered in ‘The City by the Bay’, moved to a new home – Spyglass Hilll Golf Course in Pebble Beach.
With the opening of Poppy Hills Golf Course in 1986, the NCGA became the first golf association to own and operate its own golf course – providing a tournament facility and unique benefits for NCGA members.
In 1996, the NCGA added a second course, Poppy Ridge Golf Course located in the Livermore Wine Country.
In 2020, The NCGA completed a unification with the Women’s Golf Association of Northern California (WGANC) and the Pacific Women’s Golf Association (PWGA) to better leverage efforts to support and promote women’s golf.
