Every year, Nextgengolf members have the chance to play amazing courses across the country in NCCGA and City Tour tournaments. The courses range from exclusive private facilities, open to the public, and even some that PGA Tour superstars play on. As the year comes to close, let’s look at the top 10 Nextgengolf tournament hosts in 2015. Think we missed any courses in our list? Read through to the bottom and let us know on Twitter. We'd love to hear your opinion on what we missed, or how great one of the below courses was to your team.
If your course is interested in hosting an NCCGA and/or City Tour event this upcoming season, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Here's details on how to get involved and host an event for Nextgengolf.
1) Cog Hill Golf & Country Club – Dubsdread Course
Cog Hill's Dubsdread Course was the site of the first City Tour Championship in September. The layout proved very challenging with deep bunkers lining most holes. As a previous site for the PGA Tour BMW Championship, what else would you expect? Congratulations again to team "Slice and Dice" from Cincinnati on the victory!
2) TPC San Antonio – Oaks Course
3) TPC San Antonio – Canyons Course
Site of the Fall 2015 NCCGA Championship, the Oaks course plays host to the Valero Texas Open tournament where Jimmy Walker took home north of a million dollars this past year. Canyons hosts the San Antonio Championship on the Senior Tour. The courses weren't too friendly to the NCCGA golfers, as the low score on Day 1 was 81, in large part due to the 40 MPH winds. Day 2 was slightly more scoring friendly, as the low round was 73. Medalist Austin Havens finished +14 for the weekend (85-73).
4) Bryan Park - Champions Course
Site of the Spring 2015 NCCGA National Championship, the Bryan Park Champions course had beautiful views wrapping around Lake Townsend. Despite rainy and cold weather, the medalist at Bryan Park, Josh Heinze of Michigan State, shot -1 for the weekend.
5) Paa-Ko Ridge Golf Club – Desert Regional
6) Harborside International Golf Center – Great Lakes Regional and Chicago City Tour
8) The Golf Club at Hawks Prairie – Northwest Regional
9) Cherry Hills Country Club – Mountain Regional
10) South Shore Country Club – Boston City Tour
