The National Course of the Year Award recognizes a golf course that epitomizes exceptional course quality and management excellence, while making important contributions to their communities and the game.

CHAPTER MARKET APPLICANTS:
If your Chapter awards a Chapter Course of the Year, that Chapter Course of the Year will automatically appear on the NGCOA Course of the Year ballot as the sole nominee from that market. Contact your Chapter Executive Director for more details and deadlines.


NON-CHAPTER MARKET APPLICANTS:
Available to any current NGCOA members in non-chapter states who have been an active member for at least one year.

Applications for 2017 are due November 1, 2016.

What should be included in the application?
Click here to download the application guidelines. Each application must include complete contact information and explain how your course meets the following criteria:

  • Exceptional Quality of the Course
  • Exceptional Quality of Ownership and Management
  • Outstanding Contribution to its Community
  • Significant Contribution to the Game

How do I submit an application? (Non-Chapter Markets Only)

  • Applications must be submitted via email to ithorson@ngcoa.org by November 1.
  • Applications must be submitted as one file in either a .doc or .pdf format. (If photos are included in your application, they must be embedded in the word document or part of your .pdf file; please do not submit separate attachments)

Four regional winners (one winner from the West, Midwest, Southeast and Northeast) will be selected by a Regional Awards Selections Committee as finalist for the national award. Finalists will then be voted on by the NGCOA Board of Directors and one winner will be selected as the National Course of the Year.

All finalists will be recognized during an Awards Ceremony at the 2017 Golf Business Conference in Orlando, FL, February 7-9. The winner will be announced at the Celebration Dinner on Thursday evening.
