The spring semester can be tough. Preparing for midterms, finals, the last few months of college and, for seniors, graduation, it can be a busy time for many in college. With the NCCGA spring season being so short, sometimes the fall season is the last thing on a Club President's mind.

Top 5 NCCGA Club Golf Team Performances in 2016

Top 5 NCCGA Club Golf Team Performances in 2016

By Travis Richardson

Earlier we took a look at the Top 15 college golf tournament rounds from the NCCGA season. While the numbers were impressive, something was missing. NCCGA tournaments aren't about individual scores, they are ultimately about the team's score. One hot individual performance doesn't necessarily mean the team comes out victorious. A team victory requires five scores, and teammates picking each other up when a bad round happens.

Let's a take a look at the Top 5 NCCGA team scores from 2016 (Spring and Fall season), including a mind-boggling performance in the Southeast Region.

No Club Golf Team = No Problem for Bradley Student

By Connor Brown

As a college student, the end of summer can be bitter-sweet. It means leaving your summer job and hometown friends for college dorms and 8 am classes. But for those playing NCCGA golf, the end of summer also means a chance to play club golf with friends and teammates that you haven’t seen all summer.

How Club Golf Shaped My College Career

By Brian Eidelbus

A recent post was made on the Nextgengolf blog by Corey Stamper, who transferred from playing club golf team at a large state university to a varsity team at a much smaller college. My situation was exactly the opposite; I went from a Division II golf program to Florida State University’s club golf team.

5 Ways to Grow Your Club Golf Team

5 Ways to Grow Your Club Golf Team

By Travis Richardson

One of the most important aspects of building a club golf team, and maintaining it, is a solid recruiting plan. Even if you have the best college golf club team in the nation, eventually the players will graduate and you don't want to be standing there with an empty cupboard. Even if you attend a massive school, failing to spread awareness to the student body will prevent your club from growing beyond a few people.

Does your school have club golf?

6 Fundraising Ideas for Your Club Golf Team

6 Fundraising Ideas for Your Club Golf Team

By Mike Kersys

Here at the NCCGA we hear all kinds of challenges that club golf teams face each season. One of the most common problems we hear about semester after semester is funding. Many teams don't receive funding support from the school, or only receive a small amount, leaving the team to foot the rest of the bill. It can seem daunting, but it doesn't have to be.

I know fundraising can be a huge pain, but we have seen and heard all kinds of great ideas from teams around the country. These ideas have ranged from extremely simple to execute, to moderately difficult (but finacially worth it). These fundraisers do a great job of bringing in money to support the club's expenses, but are also fun to do as a team. After all, you can’t spell fundraiser without FUN (corny joke, I know).

Here are 6 fundraiser ideas we've heard from club golf teams across the country:
