Atlantic

The Atlantic Region will be playing their first tournament of the semester this weekend at Toftrees Golf Resort in State College. The University of Pittsburgh comes into the weekend as the favorite, as they have made it to nationals each of the last 9 semesters. This past spring the region was much more competitive than it has ever been, Pitt came in third place in the first regional but was able to rebound in the second tournament to barely secure a spot at Hot Springs. The Atlantic feeds into Zone #2 for nationals qualification where Villanova, Delaware A, Michigan and Delaware B hold the top 4 spots.

Week 1 of the NCCGA is in the books. Tulsa took home Team of the Week honors with their impressive victory in the Ozark region, winning by 8 strokes. Back-to-back national champs Georgia squeaked by in the South region winning by just 1 stroke over Alabama.  Lee Brooks of Alabama takes NCCGA player of the week honors after firing a 2 day score of 141 (-3.)  The Twin Cities Region saw some incliment weather forcing some of the field to play 36 holes on Sunday. In the end, all players were able to finish and the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities took home the glassware winning by a whopping margin of 27 strokes.

Week 1 Preview

The fall 2017 season is finally here. Teams from the Ozark, South, and Twin Cities regions will all attempt to take their first step towards Vegas. We anticipate these will be three of the more competitive regions in the country as 4 of the top 12 teams in the preseason rankings will be teeing off (#1 Georgia, #3 Alabama, #5 OK State, and #12 Minnesota).

However, for the first time in NCCGA history, Zone based qualifying will be brought into play. This means that not only will teams be vying for National Championship & National Invitational Tournament bids against their own region but other regions in the country, too. The Ozark and the South Region both feed into Zone #4, so members of the Colonial, North Carolina, and Pacific should pay a little extra attention this weekend.

Major Colleges without Club Golf Teams

Major Colleges without Club Golf Teams

By Kris Hart

 

The NCCGA has been rapidly growing over the last few years and helping thousands of college students get out on the course. Our mission is to ensure every college student golfer has a place to play golf while in school. The foundation to a great club golf team is a strong leader and club president for the team. The good news is that big schools like Ole Miss, Western Kentucky, Navy, Airforce, Marshall, Temple, University of Washington, UNC Charlotte, Utah, Princeton, Kansas State, and St. Johns all recently got new leaders who are working on forming clubs on their campus. Unfortunately, the schools below do not have club golf leaders or teams on campus. Do you know any friends on these campuses that might want to play club golf?

New Nationals Qualifying and Addition of the National Invitational Tournament

New Nationals Qualifying and Addition of the National Invitational Tournament

As a former club golfer, I competed in four NCCGA National Championships and know the significance of qualifying for the coveted season-ending nationals. In May, we announced the proposed changes to the Fall 2017 NCCGA National Championship qualifying procedures. Since thenthe NCCGA staff has been collecting feedback via surveys, emails, calls, and texts. I have spoken with many club golfers to get their input on these changes and two questions have come up time and time again, “Why can’t we keep the old system?” and “how does this affect my team?”

Entering the weekend, not many people gave the Georgia Club Golf team a chance to win. Despite entering the NCCGA National Championship as the defending champions, the Bulldogs had lost both regional tournaments, were ranked #58, and were only bringing 7 people to Hot Springs Country Club. The odds and momentum were stacked against them.

The main concern entering Round 1 of the 2017 Spring NCCGA National Championship was pretty simple: Would 18 holes be possible? The weather forecast looked rough, with calls for rain and thunderstorms starting in the early afternoon. At the end of the day everyone was not only able to play 18 holes, but the sun was even a participant for a little while, with rain intermittently.

Ohio University club golf is heading to the NCCGA National Championship for the first time in club history. I know that because I started the club back in my sophomore year, 2012. To say I’m happy is an understatement, but I know it means much more to the boys on the team now.

Niagara Club Golf Takes Next Step with Nationals Trip

By Mike Kersys

The Northeast Region has and always will be, one of the toughest regions to compete in the NCCGA during the spring season. With temperatures rarely rising above freezing in the weeks before the first tournament and late snowstorms a surprising, yet common, occurrence teams have little opportunity to get a real practice on the course. When they do finally get out for a few holes it is on a course with shaggy grass and wet lies.
