Keeping Students in the Game
There are over 226,000 golfers who play competitive high school golf and just over 10,000 of those students play varsity golf in college. NCCGA and its sister organization, CollegeGolfPass make golf a reality for over 8000 non-varsity college students at over 300 colleges across the country. By the end of the fall season, NCCGA and CGP combined plan anticipate being larger than varsity golf in the country. Over the last 8 months the NCCGA has tripled in size and has developed a premier avenue for collegiate golfers to compete at the non-varsity level.
