Formed in 1948, The Ottawa Valley Golf Association (OVGA) is a non-profit organization committed to promoting the growth and development of golf in the Ottawa Valley Region. Supported by Golf Québec, Golf Ontario, and Golf Canada, the OVGA is responsible for golf tournaments, junior programs, handicap supervision, the rules of golf, and course rating in the district.

In these efforts, the OVGA supports and works with its approximately 80 member clubs and is proud and appreciative of its 4,000 boys, girls, women, and men that participate in and volunteer for our competitions.

News: OVGA Intersectionals Cancelled

This perennial favourite club competition has been around for over 60 years. For those club members who qualify to make the team, it is a “badge of honor” to wear the club team shirt and represent their club in this great event. Unfortunately, for this year, regions across Ontario and Quebec, including the OVGA, have made the difficult decision to cancel their Intersectionals. It was not a decision that was made lightly or without considerable debate. In the end, the health and safety for all involved were the primary factors driving this decision. Other factors influencing our decision-making were: club policies regarding the hosting of outside tournaments; clubs’ ability to field full teams; players’ comfort level; and the impact that current protocols would have on the team aspect of the event. All 2020 club standings will be carried into 2021, and we look forward to a spirited competition next season.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at admin@ovga.org should you have any questions.

OVGA Update: Annual General Meeting Postponed

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be an ever-evolving situation, the OVGA continues to monitor the situation and is tracking positions from national, provincial and regional health authorities as well as our provincial and national golf industry partners to monitor the situation and guide next steps.


The OVGA has been working tirelessly throughout the winter months in preparing to provide you and your fellow golf enthusiasts an exceptional 2020 golf season. While we are excited for the upcoming season and all the new developments and initiatives that have been put in place for the summer, our primary commitment has always been, and continues to be, the health and safety of all our golfers, volunteers, club staff, and event partners.


As such, with the current environment, the OVGA has decided to postpone the spring Annual General Meeting until further notice. In terms of our competitions, registration is suspended for the time being in alignment with the guidance of our health authorities and golf industry partners.
