The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) is the governing body for all junior college athletic programs. JUCO golf can be a great fit for student-athletes who decide to pursue college golf later in their high school career, or who want to improve their scores and grades before transferring to a four-year institution.

There are 98 NJCAA golf schools across the country, and each one can award a maximum of eight scholarships.
