Supporting Our Member Clubs

The NCGA provides many benefits and services to support our member clubs, helping to enhance the individual golfer experience and grow the game together.

 

Whether you’re currently a Club Officer or looking to start your own club, we hope you find the following resources helpful. NCGA Club Officers oversee many aspects of club administration, including handicap management, tournaments and events, member communications and more. The majority of our clubs have assigned the following unique positions to run their club effectively:  President, Handicap Chair, Treasurer/Billing, and Club Ambassador (Communications).  In addition to developing a Club Officer on-boarding, we have put together resources to help each officer perform their role and ensure that they are aware of best practices for club engagement.

Handicapping Resources

Managing the handicap indexes at your club is an important task—thank you for taking it on! With your efforts, the handicap system is properly administered and creates a fair and equitable golfing experience for all. We hope you find our Handicapping Resources Page and World Handicap System Hub valuable tools while administering the WHS at the club level. Additionally, you can access more information in the Rules of Handicapping online manual. 

REMINDER: Mandatory WHS Certification deadline has been extended to August 31. This certification is required for ALL NCGA clubs.

Course Rating and Course Measurement Services

The NCGA  provides course measuring and rating services to member and non-member clubs on a periodic basis. We strive to rate each member course every 6 years. Clubs that have undergone a renovation, built any new tee pads or added/removed any obstacles etc. may be rated or measured on a more frequent basis. This is a complimentary service to our member clubs. For non-member courses, there is a fee.

Please email Jeremy Gray, Assistant Director of Course Rating, for more information on getting your course rated.

Rules and Competitions

The NCGA hosts 500+ tournament and event days each year. In addition to individual championships, we also host Club Events, Team Match, and Scratch League, where your best players compete against members from other clubs throughout the region. View our Full Tournament Calendar to see all the ways your members can represent your club this season. 

Our NCGA staff members can help answer those tricky questions on the Rules of Golf – whether you’re on the course or want some clarification later, we’re here to help! Additionally, the NCGA provides resources to help you to learn the Rules yourself, including our Rules Resource Page, NCGA Rules of Golf Seminars and our Online Rules School

Club Ambassador Program

Club Ambassadors serve as the communication liaison between the NCGA and their club—a vital link in relaying important information about NCGA benefits and services to their members. Additionally, Ambassadors keep us informed of issues and concerns that clubs are facing so that we can proactively help and support our member clubs. We’re here to serve you!

Club Ambassadors receive a monthly newsletter that includes easy-to-share information regarding NCGA member benefits and service – we ask that you send this information to your members each month. Club Ambassadors also have the opportunity to attend webinars about membership engagement and best-practices, as well as attend an annual golf outing to meet Ambassadors from other clubs.
