As the voice of the golf business, in VA, MD and DC, the NGCOA Mid-Atlantic serves to promote, protect, and educate its members and their courses.  We are a newly formed chapter, and we plan to focus in on several areas: growing the game, legislative affairs, networking, education and vendor relations.


Our chapter addresses local issues like property taxes and water resource issues and provides forums for education and making connections with your peers.  We also coordinate “best practices” exchanges both live in meetings, as well as through conference calls and electronic communications.  We attract members from every course type, ensuring that you will find individuals who share your challenges. These are people you will meet on Accelerate, at the annual conference and at chapter meetings.


We have an excellent Board of Directors representing every segment of the golf industry – daily fee, private, resort, military, management company, etc.  We are seeking to grow our membership, as there is strength in numbers -- please join and help us recruit new members!
