What exactly is the NCCGA?
What is non-varsity golf?
On any given college campus, the school has a varsity NCAA golf team. The team probably has around 10 team members. But what about all the other students on campus with golf talent?
Those students form a non-varsity club golf team (think club hockey, club baseball, etc.). And similar to the varsity program participating in NCAA sanctioned events, the NCCGA provides a governing body and support structure to non-varsity club teams.
How does the NCCGA help?
Support from the NCCGA involves guiding students and schools through the process of starting, funding, recruiting, and ensuring the club is set-up in a position for long-term success. The NCCGA has helped start over 100 club golf teams in the last year alone.
More than 350 schools have club golf teams that are involved in the NCCGA, and together we help support more than 20,000 college students. These students include former varsity golfers looking for a smaller time commitment, high school team captains, as well as recreational players,graduate students, and everyone in-between.
