COY Applicaton Deadline

imgIt is that time of year to begin working on your nominations for the NGCOA New England Chapter Course of the Year Award for 2019.   Take this opportunity to gain significant promotions if your course earns the award-  Recognition within New England,  Recognition within the Northeast, and possible National Recognition.  That's is the kind of publicity everyone wants for their club.  Watch your social media explode as members brag about the award.  Note, your facility MUST be a member of the NEGCOA to apply (click here for an application form) or click on this link to join online and consider applying next year.

The award recognizes four key components of your operation including: 

  • Exceptional Quality of the Course
  • Exceptional Quality of Ownership and Management
  • Outstanding Contribution to the Local Community
  • Significant Contributions to the Game.

Once all the nominations have been gathered, the Course of the Year Committee will meet and review the candidates. The committee will then make a selection based on the submitted information.  Note, a committee member may not be selected for the award. The New England winner goes on to compete for the National Course of the Year award.  Our 2014 & 2016 COY winners -Miacomet Golf Club of Nantucket and TPC Boston made it to the Final Four for National Consideration! 

And our 2015 COY went even farther by winning the NGCOA National Course of the Year Award-- congrats to Atkinson Resort and Country Club for their great accomplishment.  Click here to see more about the award and previous winners.
