The Ohio Golf Course Owners Association is an important organization because it serves as a voice for Ohio's golf course operators, owners, and managers. We strive to promote, protect, and educate our members on best business practices through educational programs, networking functions, and cost savings initiatives including workers compensation, payroll services, and a complete health care option. Additionally, the OGCOA represents the interests of course owners and operators on matters of policy within Ohio.
One key example of this is the OGCOA involvement in getting golf courses open and keeping them open throughout the pandemic. Imagine where we would be at if golf courses were kept closed as a non-essential business for as long as restaurants and other businesses were closed. Being open enabled us to not only avoid this huge loss of revenue, but also incur tremendous growth in rounds of golf played and revenue. Again, the OGCOA has been very active in working with our state officials to make this happen for golf courses, teaching professionals, and everybody else who makes a living in the game of golf.
Being a member supports this important organization and it gives you a dual membership in the National Golf Course Owners Association (www.ngcoa.org/membership/welcome). The NGCOA represents all of us at the national level and provides many additional benefits including discounts on equipment and other items, insurance options including health care, educational opportunities, and nationwide networking with other golf course owners and professionals.Join Today
