Ottawa Valley Golf Association Revises Women’s Handicap Index Ranges For 2022

To encourage wider participation from around the region in their Women’s event, the Ottawa Valley Golf Association (OVGA) has announced some revisions. The handicap ranges for their 2022 Women’s individual medal competitions have been tightened.

For those particular events, the new ranges will be as follows:

Existing Index Ranges New Index Ranges
Class A 0.0 – 18.4 0.0 – 12.0
Class B 18.5 – 27.4 12.1 – 24.0
Class C 27.5+ 24.1 – 36.0

“Competitors will compete in the class into which their handicap index falls. Players with a  handicap index above 36.0 may choose to compete in Class C. Each of the new ranges will be split into a spread of 12 points, making it more equitable for the higher index players, in particular those in Class A,” says a note from OVGA Women’s Tournament Coordinator, Sherry Rodenkirch. 

These new ranges will apply for the following 2022 OVGA women’s tournaments: 

Tournament Date Location
Field Day May 30 Greensmere 
Senior Championship July 19/20 Carleton / TBD
City & District July 25-27 Rockland / Renfrew / Royal Ottawa
Tournaments of Champions September 26 Hylands

All women’s NET tournaments will continue to be split into divisions according to the size of the  field, keeping like handicaps together.
