First played in 2005, the NCGA Mixed Championship is a two-person handicap event for male/female NCGA members. It is contested in three flights divided by handicap index: President 0-11, Director 12-17 and Secretary 18 and above.  The event was traditionally held annually at Poppy Hills for the first seven years, before a change was made in 2012. In 2012, the event expanded to two separate championships played concurrently on Poppy Hills GC and Del Monte GC, with both fields playing 18 holes at each course. Going forward in 2013 there will be two mixed team championships, one held in the spring and another held in the fall.
