The NCGA is an association of golf clubs; to become a member of the NCGA, you must join a club.

There are three types of NCGA clubs you can join. The first is a regular club, which exists at a golf course. In Northern California, there are nearly 400 golf courses that offer NCGA membership. There are a wide variety of both public and private courses, with varying pricing, skill levels and tournament options available. Each club has its own member benefits in addition to what the NCGA provides.
