The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America is the professional association for the men and women who manage and maintain the game’s most valuable resource - the golf course. The golf industry recognizes the association as a key contributor in elevating the game and business.
Established in 1979 and headquartered in Charleston, S.C., the NGCOA is the leading authority on the business of golf course ownership and management. The Association represents the industry’s key decision makers with ultimate responsibility for golf courses throughout the world. The not-for-profit organization is the only trade association dedicated exclusively to golf course owners and operators.
