"I  already have an NCGA number, why do I have to join the SIR NCGA Golf Club?Ē


SIR has some great golf opportunities! 

Most of our Branches have an NCGA Associate Golf Club.  They usually play once a week at various local courses. Members enjoy playing with people from their own Branch as well as from other Branches in many different formats, Low Net, Best Ball, Scramble, etc.

Additionally we offer away tournaments for all SIR NCGA Branch golf members.

Each year we schedule several two or three day tournaments in various locations e.g. Las Vegas, Reno, Solvang, San Diego, etc.  We try to vary the locations from year to year to give our members a variety of golf experiences.  Golf tournaments and side trips are also provided for the Ladies, should they want to accompany you.

We also hold a State Scramble Team Championship in August and an Individual Net Championship in October. Area and Division qualifying tournaments are held at various locations to determine participation in these two State Championships.  These tournaments are organized by the SIR State Golf Committee made up of 12 members from all of the SIR Golf Divisions.  Check the State Golf Schedule on our golf website for current information.  Come join us!  All tournaments are handicapped and flighted.  Itís fun for golfers of all abilities.
