Billy Casper Golf: World's largest golf outing

Billy Casper Golf: World's largest golf outing

By Grant Johnson

Hello all! Many things have happened in my life since I finished my term as President of the NCCGA in 2017. For starters, I wrapped up my 4-year NCCGA career in April and graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.S. in environmental science and policy. I thoroughly enjoyed my undergraduate years, highlighted by many tremendous experiences with the NCCGA and Nextgengolf. Thanks to the opportunities they provide, I was able to continue playing competitive golf in college and made many lifelong friendships along the way.

Nationals: From the perspective of the NCCGA President

Nationals: From the perspective of the NCCGA President

By Brandon Bone

NCCGA Nationals is a special event for all of us.  From the staff, to the participants, to the sponsors each season's final event is an amazing experience. Last December, I traveled to Fall Nationals in Las Vegas at Paiute Resort and experienced the next level of the club golf atmosphere. I had to chance to meet Matt Weinberger (COO), Kris Hart (CEO), and the rest of the Nextgengolf to express my appreciation and let them know how special the event is to each club golfer. Soon thereafter I applied for the NCCGA President position and was selected for the position in 2018.

Crazy Golf Pants

Crazy Golf Pants

By Oliver Mauk

Golf is traditionally a sport where looking clean cut is a must. Collared shirt tucked into golf pants with a belt is pretty much what is expected of golfers playing at any private and many public courses. This doesn't mean you can't look fresh as hell on the golf course, especially when it comes to your pants. Throw out your boring old khakis, find your inner John Daly, and try some of these pants that are sure to make your friends envious (or make them laugh at you, depending on what kind of friends you have).
