The Easiest Way to Join the NCGA

The NCGA is excited to help you enjoy golf more! The easiest and quickest way to join is with NCGA eClubs, which are virtual clubs linked to 8 NorCal regions.  Simply indicate your region to join the NCGA eClub that is right for you. A 12-month membership is just $85 and includes all NCGA Member Benefits.

NCGA membership includes an official USGA handicap index, access to hundreds of NCGA events, exclusive golf and travel deals, member privileges at Poppy Hills and Poppy Ridge golf course and more. With all the discounts we offer, the membership pays for itself!

Plus, when you establish your official handicap index, you’ll be able to compete on a level playing field no matter where you play or who you play with – so you’ll always know who REALLY won.

NCGA eClubs

Select a region close to where you play, and you will be directed to our online payment page. All eClubs are the same, so don't worry about which exact one to select.

Future eClub renewals are only $75, and you will receive an email reminder prior to the 12 month renewal date. Note that by joining an eClub, you’re able to transfer your membership to a Regular or Associate Club later on.

What is the NCGA?

The Northern California Golf Association (NCGA) supports, promotes, and governs golf in our region. We represent a diverse community of over 185,000 golfers belonging to 1,300+ clubs. All our members like to golf, whether it’s every day, once a week, or even once a year.
