Course Rating

The NGA rating team rates Member Club courses in accordance with the Course Rating System. The World Handicap System requires that all new golf courses be re-rated within five years of the initial rating and every ten years after that. Learn more


The NGA provides worthwhile educational programming to member clubs on GHIN Services, Tournament Software, Rules of Golf, Rules of Amateur Status, Handicapping and Course Rating, and more.


The NGA serves as the golf information hub for the state, and communicates a vast array of information to members and member clubs, including a tournament clearinghouse and other worthwhile programs run by member clubs. The NGA also provides engaging and entertaining content through its digital media platforms, and social media.


The NGA serves as a liaison with the USGA Green Section and their Course Consulting Service, to assist golf courses with their turfgrass management.

Tournament Software

USGA Tournament Management is the result of collaboration between the USGA and Golf Genius Software. Golf Genius is recognized as the industry leader in software solutions for tournament management. Two versions – USGA TM Club and USGA TM Premium – are offered to our Member Clubs. Learn more

Course Directory

Our new Course Directory allows us to showcase our Member Clubs and help golfers find places to play, or join, all across the state. The directory includes general information on each course, as well as yardages and course ratings, and has the ability to display photos and videos of the course. Member Clubs can update their info or submit photos/videos for their page by contacting Ben Vigil at or (402) 505-4653 ext. 105.

Tournament Clearinghouse

The NGA maintains a schedule listing of golf tournaments and events in Nebraska. Member Clubs send in tournament dates and the schedule is compiled under the Nebraska Tournaments section of this website. Included are numerous opportunities for all ages and skill levels to compete.


The NGA office is the first line of support for any member club services, and is there to assist with any questions or needs. Give us a call at (402) 505-4653.
