- provides a model operation for peers
Indiana Golf Course Owners Association members are invited to nominate their own course or a colleague's course as the Indiana Golf Course Owners Course of the year. Indiana may recognize a 9-hole and/or an 18-hole facility each year and encourages applications from all qualified courses.
Applications for the 2019 Indiana Course of the Year should be submitted by October 19, 2018.
The Association accepts nominations prior to the annual conference, for next year's award. Nominations are voted on by the INGCOA Board of Directors and announced at the INGCOA Annual Conference in November. The winning Indiana golf course will be submitted to the National Golf Course Owners Association for consideration of the coveted NGCOA Golf Course of the Year designation.
