The third round of the Ottawa Valley Golf Association’s Intersectional program was held on Sunday, July 31st at five OVGA Member Clubs.
Junior competitors from OVGA Member Clubs were hosted at Royal Ottawa, Ottawa Hunt, Smiths Falls, Mississippi and Eagle Creek Golf Clubs. In all, fifteen teams of eight juniors participated in the Junior Intersectionals. Each team was required to have 4 players age 15 and under and 4 players under the age of 19.
The “A” Division of the junior intersectionals was hosted at the Royal Ottawa Golf Club with teams from the Kanata Golf Club, Carleton Golf & Yacht Club and Rideau View Golf Club in attendance.
In the end, home course advantage didn’t help as the Royal Ottawa team lost out to the team from Rideau View by two points. Rideau View ended up with 32 points over Royal Ottawa’s 30, Carleton’s 24 and Kanata’s 10.
Players on the winning Rideau View team were Josh Amell, Chase Farquharson, Ben Hamilton, Justin Hennigar, Matt Ostapyk, Celidh Spare, Zachary Theodore and Blake White.
Scoring the maximum 6 points in their matches were Royal Ottawa’s Michael Vivone, Luc-Antoine De Celles and Samuel Denault; Carleton’s Nick Gervais and Rideau View’s Celidh Spare, Josh Amell and Chase Farquharson.
Rideau View will host Royal Ottawa, Carleton and the Ottawa Hunt in 2023 competition in “A” Division while Kanata will move down to the “B” Division held at Hylands.
Congratulations to all of the junior golfers who represented their clubs in Intersectional match play competition in 2022.
