The NCAA Division III Men's Golf Championships is the annual golf tournament, typically played in mid-May, to determine the team and individual national champions of men's collegiate golf in the United States. It has been played annually since 1975, when it split-away from the NCAA College Division Men's Golf Championships when the NCAA split into its current three-division structure.

It is a stroke play team competition, but there is also an award for the lowest scoring individual competitor.[1]

Cal State Stanislaus (formerly Stanislaus State) is the most successful program, with 12 national titles. Methodist, with 11 national titles, are the team currently in Division III with the most national championships.

Methodist are also the reigning national champions, having won their eleventh national title in 2015.
