NCGA Golf Magazine

The award-winning NCGA Golf magazine is the official publication of the Northern California Golf Association. The magazine is mailed to the homes of our membership community of over 180,000 golfers and nearly 1,400 clubs. NCGA Golf is published four times a year (January, April, July and October) and features stories on travel, golf courses and tournaments, along with regular features on instruction and the Rules of Golf. The NCGA also produces NCGA Golf Plus, a monthly digital version of the magazine.
