After establishing a working relationship in recent times, the Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) and the Ottawa Valley Golf Association (OVGA) have announced that the partnership has been extended.
The two organizations will work together in 2021 to conduct five junior golf tournaments in the Ottawa Valley and Outaouais regions.
“We are delighted to extend our partnership with the Ottawa Valley Golf Association and partner with a great organization to increase the junior opportunities to those in the area,” said Tyler Torrieri, Manager of Tour Operations. “The opportunities the CJGA can provide through our various international relations and international event rankings will give greater exposure and opportunities for junior golfers in the Ottawa region.”

We have seen a steady increase in participation over the past few years in our Junior events and combining forces will help us to continue to deliver on the high standards we have set to make our regional championships a key component of junior golf development in the region,” says Jim Davidson, OVGA Director of Player Development.
