NEGCOA Annual Meeting

Taking place on Thursday, December 2 from 8:30- 3:00pm

Lake of Isles - Foxwoods, North Stonington, CT


We have a great lineup of speakers!

We have missed all of you!  It is time to gather after these last 20 months kept us apart.  As the 2021 season winds down, we need to take in some new info and work towards improving our operations for the coming season.  With that in mind we have 5 great speakers coming, a few having recently presented at the Golf Inc Summit at La Quinta.

So plan to attend and plan to take home some great information for you to put into place over the off-season. This event is open to you, your key staff, GM, Pro, Superintendent, Marketing and Event staff, your business partner, interested family.   And keep in mind, if your club is an NEGCOA member- then your staff, family, and guests are considered members.

Join us on Thursday from 2:30pm to 4:30 for a fantastic workshop with The Golf Gurus -- Scott Merchant (Club Prophet Systems) and Ryan Wood (CEO of 1-2-1 Marketing is taking Aaron Dyer's spot).  They will be presenting:

The Playbook to Compete and Win in 2022
 -  As the pandemic altered the golf business more than any event in the last 50 years, golf course owners need to be able to quickly adapt to the "new normal". The Golf Gurus, a tongue-in-cheek title for these golf technology experts, will review what happened in 2020 and 2021, and give you the knowledge you need to capitalize on golf's Covid-Dividend in 2022. 

Cost for the workshop (includes the Cocktails and Connections reception):
NEGCOA members and their staff: $30pp (free if registered for Day 2)
Non-members: $50pp
