National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) Names Steele Benefit Services As Smart Buy Partner

Charleston, S.C. (September 6, 2017)

The National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) has named Steele Benefit Services as a Smart Buy Partner. NGCOA members can now offer their employees access to Accident, Critical Illness, Cancer and Hospital benefit products at group rates (savings of 45%-65% compared to individual market rates) but without the burden of payroll deductions, administration or billing. NGCOA members, their employees, and the families of employees pay directly (not through payroll deduction) and may keep benefits even when no longer working at the course.

To better serve our members, the NGCOA develops relationships with the industry’s leading suppliers of products and services for golf operators through the Smart Buy program. Our Smart Buy partners offer a significant NGCOA members-only benefit and in turn receive marketing, promotion and brand awareness through NGCOA channels. NGCOA members currently receive cost savings benefits on golf cars, turf & irrigation, food & related services, human resources, insurance, legal services, energy management, television programming, etc.


The National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) is the leading authority on the business of golf course ownership and management. The Association represents key decision-makers with ultimate responsibility for golf courses throughout the world. Through advocacy, education and information resources, purchasing programs and networking opportunities, the NGCOA helps golf course owners and operators run more successful businesses.
