Countdown is on to National Collegiate Golf Championship in Las Vegas
Part of the National Campus Championship Series
The NCGC, part of NIRSA's National Campus Championship Series, is just days away and over 30 schools across the country are sending qualified teams to participate in the final event in Las Vegas, November 11-13. So far this year, over 900 students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members have participated in local events in an attempt to qualify for the National Championship. A full weekend is scheduled, including registration and interviews, pairings party, practice rounds and the Championship round.
The NCGC provides an opportunity for non-NCAA golfers to compete for their school on a national levels. Individual schools can host a local event and the top teams from each local event are invited to compete against other schools in the Championship. The 2-person scramble format makes the event fun for all levels and response from the majority of participating schools has been overwhelmingly positive. In this year's program, the largest events have been held by the University of Southern Mississippi, the University of Miami, the University of Wisconsin, and the University of Iowa.
