NCGA Membership information
As the SCCJGA is an affiliate member of the NCGA (Northern California Golf Association), one of the benefits of holding a SCCJGA Tournament Card is NCGA membership and their Youth On Course (YOC) program. We apply for your NCGA card the first time you sign-up for a Tournament Players card and it takes 6 to 8 weeks to receive the actual card from the NCGA. However, your NCGA number will be available immediately on the SCCJGA website and most courses will accept the NCGA number and your current SCCJGA Tournament card for discounted Green Fees. For a list of all YOC participating courses and their Green Fee policy, please click here.
We renew your NCGA membership for the year following your SCCJGA membership, assuming you still meet the age requirements. The NCGA will mail you a new card each year but, until you receive the new one, continue to use the expired one to receive the available discounts. Should you lose your NCGA card, you must contact the NCGA directly for a replacement card.
Posting your Scores
To obtain a handicap index, you must post your 9 and 18 hole scores. At most every golf course, there will be a NCGA computer, normally found in the Pro Shop, for the express purpose of posting scores. As we do not have a home golf course, always post your score as an "Away" score. If you are unable to post on the NCGA computer at the golf course, you may post your score online at the NCGA Posting page. Remember to adjust your score for Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) before posting. For information about how to adjust your score for ESC, click here.
