The Ottawa Valley Golf Association (OVGA) ran their 2016 Men’s Intersectional competition sponsored by Golf-O-Max throughout the Ottawa Valley today with 16 OVGA Member Clubs hosting four-team Intersectional divisions.

This is the largest single day team competition played on one day and if each Club fielded their 10-man team plus 2 alternates, then 768 club members would be playing for their assorted golf clubs. This number of players does not factor in the hundreds of other club members who have competed in qualifiers just to make their Club Team.

The goal on the day of the OVGA Intersectional Competition is for Clubs to win their division and eventually move up to “A” Division. Finishing fourth in a division means moving back to the next lowest division. Clubs can only host for two consecutive years and then the runner-up hosts the following year. As many Clubs can attest, it’s a long climb to the top and even when the top division is reached, there is no guarantee of a win or even staying there.

Since the formation of the Ottawa Valley Golf Association in 1981, only five Golf Clubs have won The Flagstick Cup donated by Jeff Bauder, Publisher of Flagstick Golf Magazine. The current champion is the Rideau View Golf Club and they have won the division 14 times. The Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club hosted the 2016 “A” Division after Rideau View had won in 2014 & 2015 and The Hunt was runner-up last year. Rivermead Golf Club has won the division 10 times, the latest being in 2001. The 4th Club in “A” Division this year and their first time was the Greyhawk Golf Club.

The two other Clubs who have won the “A” Division are Outaouais (3) and Royal Ottawa (2).

The final result in Division “A” of the 2016 OVGA Men’s Intersectionals was Rideau View (36), Rivermead (32), Ottawa Hunt (27) and Greyhawk (25). If the numbers look close, imagine how the teams felt coming down to the wire. It was anybody’s trophy to win until the last few groups posted their numbers.

With 6 of their 10 players in the clubhouse, Rideau View was in last place and then their last 4 players brought in three maximum scores of 6 and 1 score of 4.

Six point winners in “A” Division were Rideau View’s Brock Gibson, Justin de Vroome, Griffin Jones and Tim Sullivan; Ottawa Hunt’s Brent Rebus; Rivermead’s Larry Morin, Nikolai Tolstoy and Maxime Marengere and Greyhawk’s Brian Elliott.

The remaining members of the Championship Team from Rideau View were Paul Spare, Jamie Aldrich, Curtis Aldrich, Michael Farquharson, Mark Mackay, Brett Merriman and Chris Collins. They took home the OVGA “A” Division Intersectional Trophy sponsored by GOLFOMAX and donated by Jeff Bauder, Publisher of Flagstick Golf Magazine.

Rideau View Captain was almost speechless on his team’s win at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club, but he did force out the following words – “There’s a lot of Rideau View players and members here who are a little shocked. We were in last place with four players left and they came in with 6, 6, 6 and 4 points for the win. It was a bit of a shock. It was nice to win on a new course to us after the two year renovations at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club. There were three teams that had no idea what this Course was like. One thing I can say is that when Rideau View comes to play – egads lad, we do tend to turn it on a bit.”

In 2017, Rideau View will host Rivermead, Ottawa Hunt & Golf and Camelot who won the “B” Division on their home course. Greyhawk will travel to Prescott who will host Division B next year.

Congratulations to all OVGA Intersectional competitors, their caddies and wins and all those who attempted to qualify for spots on their Club’s teams.

This story will be updated with full results once they are all available from the OVGA as well as additional images of Division winning teams if they are submitted.
